Managed Growth

Given Burlingame’s built-out character, capacity for growth is limited. However, the City is committed to accommodating and managing targeted growth to respond to regional demand for housing—and housing affordable to a broader range of income levels in particular—and to allow for new commercial and industrial development adapting to an evolving economy over time. The three areas targeted for change and growth are the Badlands (all properties east of Highway 101), the North Rollins Road district (Innovation Industrial), and the north end of El Camino Real (North Burlingame Mixed Use). Proposals for more intensive development will require detailed analysis of infrastructure conditions and plans for any required upgrades/improvements.
