The Willow Village plan is consistent with the community planning vision of ConnectMenlo, Menlo Park’s General Plan, and more than five years and thousands of conversations with neighbors and civic leaders. Together, we’ve worked to address tough regional issues like housing supply, affordability, sustainability, and traffic.
We’ve made specific enhancements including a new Main Street and Town Square designed for walking, biking, retail, and social gathering. We’ve balanced jobs and housing onsite, and updated project construction phasing to prioritize key community amenities to commence at the beginning of the first phase and be amongst the first to open.
