Adding to the argument that rezoning Rutherford Avenue is not only against the neighborhood’s will, it is utterly unnecessary:
A 33-unit condominium building proposed for 601 El Camino Real at Hopkins Avenue is up for review by the Redwood City Planning Commission Tuesday.
Five three-story buildings are being proposed to replace two one-story buildings used as a showroom, office space and auto repair shop for a Honda car dealership currently open on a 1.2-acre site just west of the Caltrain tracks, according to a staff report.
The project is expected to provide 24 two-bedroom and nine three-bedroom condominiums with two covered parking spots each. The applicant is requesting permission to build tandem parking, in which one car parks directly behind another car, for 12 of the 33 condominiums, according to the staff report.
