North Bayshore Precise Plan for Transit-Oriented Employment District Adopted by Mountain View City Council

The Mountain View city council voted to approve a new precise plan defining how and where development can occur in this 500-acre light industrial area north of Highway 101. The plan allows for up to 3.4 million square feet of new commercial space to be built, transforming the existing auto-oriented business park into a walkable, transit-oriented, mixed-use employment district. The Plan includes development standards, design guidelines, a transportation management plan, public improvement funding strategies, and a system of density bonus incentives for projects that provide high levels of environmental sustainability or transfer of development rights abutting environmentally sensitive areas.
