The team created a plan for transforming the Bay Meadows Racetrack into a vibrant transit-oriented commercial district with office space, residential units, retail space, public transportation, and public parks and open space. HOK worked with developer Wilson Meany Sullivan as well as planners and architects to develop a plan for the site’s adaptive reuse, which is a model for sustainable growth in the Bay Area.
Beginning with the concept of creating a transit-oriented development that reduces automobile dependency, the master plan creates a flexible framework of streets, public spaces and passages. The plan focuses each parcel on its connection to the nearby Hillsdale Caltrain station platform.
Designed by HOK, the five-building office development scheme accommodates the need for flexible office floor plates, retail space and plenty of commuter parking.
