A Vibrant Mixed-Income Community Midway Village currently provides 150 affordable homes and is owned and managed by the Housing Authority of the County of San Mateo. MidPen Housing, in close collaboration with the County of San Mateo, will redevelop Midway Village, currently the site of 150 multifamily apartments and a childcare center, as well as Bayshore Park. The proposed redevelopment will provide a vibrant new mixed-income community with 150 brand new affordable homes for the existing residents, as well as 405 new apartments for additional individuals and families. The project will also create a brand new and expanded childcare center in place of the old one, and make improvements for a future renovation of Bayshore Park. The City Council approved the redevelopment plans on June 8, 2020, and Phase 1 of the redevelopment is anticipated to break ground in 2021.
MidPen Housing and the Housing Authority of the County of San Mateo are in the process of completing an agreement with the California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) allowing the redevelopment to proceed in a manner that protects the health and safety of residents, construction workers, and the public. DTSC currently monitors the site for ongoing compliance with the historical remediation actions that took place in the 1990s. DTSC will oversee construction during the redevelopment and will continue to monitor compliance after the redevelopment is complete in order to protect the health and safety of residents and the public going forward.
