Greenbelt Alliance Endorsed: Gateway at Millbrae Station Approved

After years of delay, the Gateway at Millbrae Station was finally approved by the Millbrae City Council on March 14th.

This project will transform a vast BART parking lot into a thriving, transit-oriented community. It provides 400 new homes at the doorstep of both BART and Caltrain with 25% of the new homes permanently affordable, including homes for low-income veterans.

We are particularly excited that the final project has more homes than originally proposed (up from 376) and a higher proportion of affordable homes (up from 20%). It took a team effort—including moving stories from the many veterans who will be able to live in Millbrae. Greenbelt Alliance was proud to champion this smart project over many years. We hope its approval will inspire the wise use of our limited public land throughout the region.

  1. Will the existing parking spaces be replaced, or does this development reduce parking for commuters who have been using the BART station?

    • Thank you for your comment. The current plan will include replacement parking but there will be a small reduction in the total number of parking spaces. This will be offset by many new contributions to improve access and safety for walking and biking throughout the area.

  2. We should be endorsing permanently affordable ownership of condos near transport, not endless apartments for rent that vastly enrich the builder. Renting is not the only sustainable option for infill. Smart growth requires ownership options for low and middle income families. I see Greenbelt constantly favoring young single employees and their temporary renting as the solution in the name of sustainability. But if they choose to stay, they will eventually commute in from the suburbs. We must find ways to give people the ability to stay and invest in their local environment,

    • I agree with George. Homeownership is a vital part of community building. While I support the development of residences near commute lines. Ensuring affordable housing includes allowances for lower-mid income extended families and working seniors not just young / single renters in each and every town.
