The Town Crier has received several inquiries about changes to two Los Altos Community Investments properties: 170 State St., above, and 151 First St.
In 2010, Anne Wojcicki, CEO of 23andMe, founded LACI, which owns more than two dozen downtown properties.
According to the city of Los Altos’ New Development webpage, a design review application for 170 State is under consideration. The project, approved last December, will transform the existing two-story building into a mixed-use development with a food court on the first floor and office space on the second.
LACI officials confirmed that the building permit is being processed by the city and promised the Town Crier an interview with renderings when paperwork is approved.
As for 151 First, the former home of arcade Area 151, only rubble remains after its recent demolition. After the Town Crier deadline, LACI representatives commented a new design that will provide green space to Bumble next door was previously approved by the city. Site improvement and use permits were obtained July 1.
