The site of the long-vacant 1.3-acre post office property at 220 Park Rd. will finally get a new lease on life. The development will consist of 185,000 developable square feet of office and retail space in the center of downtown Burlingame.
Sares Regis Group of Northern California and Dostart Development Company are working in a joint venture effort on the project. The building design will preserve the former post office lobby, converting it into a retail space that will open onto the adjacent Burlingame Town Square.
“The proposal for the development of this important downtown property promises a building that will contribute much to the fabric of downtown Burlingame while acknowledging the importance this legacy property has to the community,” says Ann O’Brien Keighran, city mayor. “We trust that Sares Regis and Dostart Development have the vision and expertise to deliver a project that will improve our downtown, contributing to the construction of a new Town Square that will serve as a gathering place for our community for decades to come.”
Ben Paul and Marc Pope of Cushman & Wakefield’s Burlingame office, and Mike Moran and Charlie Moran of CBRE are marketing the property for lease. The 17,000 square feet of retail space will be marketed by Steve Cutter and Chris Homs of Lockehouse Retail Group.
