988 El Camino Real serves as the gateway to the City of South San Francisco’s El Camino Real/Chestnut Area, and is situated on one of the most prominent intersections in the city. Pedestrian-oriented retail lines the sidewalks and a large front plaza anchors the corner to create a village-like, pedestrian-oriented environment. Brick streetwalls are designed to mimic a traditional commercial storefront in scale, materials and detailing, while the residential levels above are descended away from the storefront, emphasizing the pedestrian-oriented spaces and the industrial inspired corner. The ground floor of the six-story building includes nearly 11,000 square feet of retail space, plus a variety of amenities such as a lounge, fitness studio, bike hub, dog park and spur trail connecting to Centennial Way. A club room for residents, as well as two resort-style courtyards with spa, fire pits, outdoor kitchen and dining areas and lounge areas, are located on the first floor. Moving beyond the first floor, there are 172 apartment homes ranging in size from studios to two-bedrooms. The site is located less than a mile from the South San Francisco BART station and is served by SamTrans as well as a class I bike lane along Centennial Way, both of which connect to the station. To encourage green transportation, there is an on-site Transportation Coordinator and an available community web portal to facilitate residential carpooling opportunities.
