Midway Village is the thoughtful redevelopment and expansion of an existing San Mateo County Housing Authority property and established community that replaces 150 aging, outmoded homes with 555 new, sustainable ones in 12 buildings plus freestanding townhouses.The project will create a balanced, sustainable community and provide residents and neighbors with a revitalized 3.3-acre city park, child-development center, extensive community amenity spaces, and on-site resident services.

DBA and MidPen Housing communicated extensively with existing residents and neighbors to add density while staying sensitive to neighboring context. We led multiple community meetings that included listening sessions, open comments, and community design exercises, all of which informed and improved the final plan and the design of the housing. The result is a vibrant, contextually sensitive plan that will serve residents with a mix of incomes up to 120% AMI without displacement through the multi-phase development of the 15-acre site.

DBA is currently at work on the architectural design of the residential buildings within the new framework plan.

Residents helped shape their new community in a site planning exercise

David Baker Architects and MidPen Housing undertook an extensive community process to help residents shape their own neighborhood. Pictured is community meeting 3 where residents took part in a site planning game that helped establish program locations and shape the final site plan.
