Project Moving Forward.
The long awaited and often-stalled Wheeler Plaza Development in downtown San Carlos appears to be back on track again, with groundbreaking possibly happening in the next few months according to this article in the Daily Journal. This project has been the vision of community leaders for the past two decades, but has had to endure numerous delays and design changes to account for the changing political climate in California, and to address community feedback on the scope of the project. If you’re not familiar with the Wheeler Plaza area, it’s the city-owned parcel that incorporates all of the parking lot behind Wells Fargo and Le Boulanger, as well most of the buildings along San Carlos Avenue between Laurel and Walnut Streets. There’s good summary of the project on the City’s website.
What is now a parking lot and a collection of old and tired buildings is slated to be come a modern development with over 100 condos and about 10,000 square feet of brand new ground-level retail. The artist renderings of the final project are very impressive, as they have obviously gone to great lengths to maintain the heritage of San Carlos in what will be the showcase of the downtown area.
Community Update Meeting.
But with the major hurdles now hopefully in their rear-view mirror, the City is ready to move forward and actually start putting shovels to dirt. In order to bring the local community back up to date on the latest iteration of the design and the anticipated development schedule, the City of San Carlos is hosting a Wheeler Plaza Community Update Meeting this coming week. Here are the details:
When: February 12, 2015
Time: 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Where: San Carlos Library, 610 Elm Street, 2nd Floor Community Room
