650 Live Oak in Menlo Park re-imagines what a mixed-use development can contribute to a community, by bringing modern office space, green architecture, below market-rate housing, and urban density to Silicon Valley.

The project comprises a three-story mixed-use building and a three-story multi-family building that share two levels of subterranean parking with two single family homes on the adjacent lot.

This project has set a high bar for future mixed-use projects and is a response to growing demands for increased urban density and housing in Silicon Valley. To address the housing need in the area, the team went above the minimum .5 below market-rate units required and integrated two below market-rate units into the project.

It was important that the design should accommodate both residential families as well as professionals utilizing the mixed-use office building. By pulling the massing back in areas and extruding in others, three main exterior spaces emerged – a dynamic public plaza, a warm residential courtyard, and a flexible office roof garden.

Sustainable finishes and materials were used throughout the project. On the exterior, warm wood, board-formed concrete, metal, glass, and a custom metal screen that was designed and fabricated by a local metal worker surrounds the office building staircase. All the residential units feature quality materials, efficient appliances, high ceilings, large windows and lots of natural light. The team designed these beautifully functional, space-efficient homes to have their own private walk-up front door, and roof decks or garden areas, while the lofts face the private resident courtyard.

17 new housing units for 38 residents and 25,420 rentable sf of new office space.

The community amenities include bicycle storage, electric vehicle charging stations, pet friendly areas, and features community space that invites the neighborhood to share space with residents and office workers. By setting back the residential units on this compact urban lot and providing public space, the project has garnered client and neighborhood praise.
