Palo Alto builds Condos while Mountain View favors Apartments. That says it all!

Yet more traffic on San Antonio. And how will that be mitigated?? And what level of "affordability" will these condos actually be?

Being in the Palo Alto Unified School District alone probably adds $500,000 to the sale value of the condos in a project like this. Palo Alto has done a lot to curb over development by limiting the density of office space nearby and throughout the city. Denser offices on Meadow Circle would yield highly profitable real estate development but Palo Alto has resisted that, along with denser commercial development on San Antonio Road. They have to develop housing somewhere and this looks like a reasonable spot.
