Hibiscus Properties, LLC (Project Sponsor), an affiliate of Facebook, Inc., is proposing to redevelop an existing approximately 58-acre industrial site, known as the TE Connectivity (TE) Campus, by demolishing existing onsite buildings and landscaping and constructing two new office buildings and a hotel (Project). The Project would expand the existing Facebook Campus, which currently consists of Buildings 10–19 (formerly known as the East Campus), located north of Bayfront Expressway/State Route (SR) 84; Building 20, located east of the Project site; and Building 23, located at the western end of the Project site and currently undergoing tenant improvements.
The two proposed office buildings (Buildings 21 and 22) would encompass approximately 962,400 gross square feet (gsf). In addition, the Project includes a 200-room limited-service1 hotel with approximately 174,800 gsf. Development of the office buildings and hotel would result in a net increase of approximately 121,300 gsf at the Project site. The Project Sponsor is also proposing a trip cap as part of the Project to limit the number of daily and peak-period trips (AM and PM) and reduce traffic impacts.
Conflicts with Applicable Plans and Policies:
The Project would conflict with an applicable plan, policy, or regulation adopted for the purpose of reducing the emissions of GHGs, especially EO S-3-05. (Impact GHG-2)

Facebook Campus Expansion in Menlo Park

Facebook Campus Expansion, Menlo Park, California, USA
The Facebook Campus Project includes two project sites inclusive of the East Campus and West Campus. The Project is being processed in phases, with the East Campus entitlements approved by the City Council in May and June of 2012. The 56.9 acre East Campus is located at 1 Hacker Way and was previously occupied by Oracle (formally Sun Microsystems).
The site is currently developed with nine buildings, which contain approximately 1,035,840 square feet. As part of the project approvals in May and June, Facebook has implemented a vehicular trip cap, which allows approximately 6,600 employees to occupy the East Campus. Council review and action on the East Campus entitlements is complete and subsequent project review will focus on the review and permit approvals required for the West Campus component of the Facebook Campus Project.
The approximately 22-acre West Campus is located at the intersection of Willow Road and Bayfront Expressway. The site is currently addressed 312 and 313 Constitution Drive, with the anticipation that the address will be updated in the near future to better reflect the location of the project site. This second phase of the Project proposes demolition of the existing two buildings and associated site improvements.
Subsequently, the applicant seeks to construct an approximately 433,555 square foot building on top of surface parking that would include approximately 1,499 parking spaces. The proposed project is consistent with the M-2 (General Industrial District) zone requirements, except for the height of the structure and the proposed lot coverage, which would exceed the maximums applicable to height and lot coverage in the M-2 zone. As such, a rezone to M-2-X (General Industrial, Conditional Development) plus approval of a Conditional Development Permit (CDP) would be required to exceed the height limit.
On June 28, 2012, the City received a preliminary application on behalf of Facebook Incorporated to initiate review of the Facebook West Campus, which is the second phase of the Facebook Campus project. Staff has been working with the applicant since that time to provide feedback on initial design concepts and on August 27, 2012, the applicant submitted project plans and associated reports required for project analysis. The preliminary draft permitting schedule for the West Campus entitlements was reviewed by the City Council on September 11, 2012, and no changes were made to the schedule by the Council.
The Planning Commission hosted a study session to review the project on September 24, 2012. Subsequent to the Planning Commission study session, the City hosted a Public Outreach meeting on October 18, 2012 to provide an overview of the project and solicit input on public benefit ideas.
The Council provided direction for negotiating the Development Agreement at its meeting on October 30, 2012 and on January 22, 2013, the City Council approved the term sheet for the Facebook West Campus project. On February 20, 2013, the Housing Commission will consider the Below Market Rate Housing Agreement (see staff report for more information).
