When Stanford University’s new Redwood City campus opens in 2019, the office park won’t see many students buzzing around it every day, but university planners say it’ll still feel “very Stanford.”
In its first phase, the 35-acre site where Mid-Point Technology Park once sat across from the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center near Highway 101, will bring about 2,700 staff members to four planned office buildings adjacent to a workout facility, a childcare center, and a parking garage.
Stanford is slated to become Redwood City’s third-largest employer, as it fills the property with the people tasked with making sure Stanford keeps running smoothly. Departments including Land, Buildings and Real Estate, the Office of Development, Human Resources, University Libraries, Residential and Dining Enterprises and the School of Medicine administration will be stationed in Redwood City.
But students or no, the site will be outfitted with ample trees lining a central walkway and a 2.4-acre public park, and will have a distinct campus feel, the university’s Architect, David Lenox, told stakeholders at a ceremonial groundbreaking Wednesday.
