The Peninsula Heights Project consists of 290 units of new housing allowing for more entry level home-buying opportunities for residents of San Mateo. Offering a range of unit sizes, these 3-4 story for-sale townhomes, stacked flats, and single-family detached homes will display a blend of contemporary and traditional architectural forms and materials that blend cohesively with the surrounding neighborhood. 

The entire project will be all-electric with solar panel arrays installed on the roofs of the multifamily buildings and townhomes. The community will be arranged over two site areas: a Northern Parcel and a Southern Parcel.  Complying with affordable housing requirements as outlined by the City of San Mateo, this project will designate 10% of the proposed units (29 units) for low income households.

The project design and unit mix continually evolved based on comments from the City Planning Department as well as recommendations and desires from the residents of San Mateo. This collaborative design process with a focus on sustainability will result in a residential community with thoughtful positioning and architecture, as well as abundant open space and neighborhood amenities.
