Site plan.

The 78 limited-equity condominiums of Meadow Court represent a small but welcome drop in the Bay Area’s bucket of truly affordable housing. Located just east of the Southern Pacific Railroad tracks on a 2.5 acre parcel of surplus land owned by the city of San Mateo. What makes Meadow Court unusual among similar developments is its mix of housing for the elderly and families with small children.
