New seven-story housing complex proposed in East Whisman

Original post made on Aug 3, 2022

Though massive by historical Mountain View standards, city planning officials say the proposal is zoning-compliant and consistent with the city’s vision for the largely undeveloped East Whisman area.

Lets fast track approval and get it built. No more waiting 10 years to get through the process.

Let's do it, but in the Cuesta Park neighborhood. How does that sound? Is it fair that one neighborhood is constantly dumped on while others don't do their part?

If you consider replacing old industrial buildings with shiny new ones to be "dumping."

My only complaint about this project is that it's not tall enough!

Let put new housing in all of the neighborhoods!
Also, yeah the Cuesta Park Annex is NIMBY Nonsense.

They need to build at Cooper Park. Save Cooper Park !! Ridiculous. Cuesta on it. That land is doing nothing. If you want open space drive 10 mins to Los Altos Hills plenty of entrance pints to Rancho San Antonio trails. Cuesta residents just want a place they don't have to bend over to pick up dog crap.

Great idea! And while we’re at it, let’s pave over Cuesta Park itself, and also Rengstorff Park too. Parks and open space are so last century. Just think of all the apartments that could be built there instead!

The Cuesta Park Annex is nothing more than an underused, glorified empty lot and would be an excellent place for housing. Far better than the current plan to shoehorn Soviet-style housing blocs into every inch of an already overcrowded area that has virtually no green space.

So sad to see Mountain View being destroyed with a young transient workforce living in studio apartments establishing no roots in Mountain View. They get Google on their resume and move on. Why are we enabling this!

i guess Leslie must have a dog (The Annex is a nice dog run)

YIMBY Cuesta Parkers know that The Annex would be an excellent place for some BMR (lower-income) housing built inexpensively with modern-modular multi-story technology. Berkeley has done it, the Council and interested residents saw presentations (and a trailered-in unit) several years ago on this concept.

The Annex is walkable to schools, hospital, 2 shopping centers and bus lines.

The MVWSD could do it (small-small-scale) on 'just a bit' of their underutilized dirt lot in the "heretofore untouchable" Waverly Park area. [ here's talking with you / if Any YIMBY exist in that suburban-scape]

JPA - Joint Powers Authority: MVWSD - MVLA - Hospital District - City of MV
