String-Like Lot for Construction-Like Challenge!

Today’s find is from Burbed reader Petsmart Groomer!  No house, but you get to use your imagination coming up with the best design to fit this location, location, location!

1544 Woodland Ave, East Palo Alto, CA 94303


SQ. FT.: –
LOT SIZE: 0.62 Acres
PROPERTY TYPE: Residential Land (Single Family)
COMMUNITY: West of U.S. 101
COUNTY: San Mateo
MLS#: 81142619
STATUS: Pending Without Release
ON REDFIN: 67 days

A wooded terraced landscape located along San Francisquito Creek bordering Crescent Park, one of Palo Alto’s finest neighborhoods and across the street from the University Circle office complex, home of the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel of Silicon Valley.

It looks tranquil enough, as long as it isn’t in that Special Flood Zone we keep hearing about; whoops, it’s “In Flood Plain” according to the listing information.  Plain, not Special at all.  But if you don’t like the house you end up building here, check into the hotel across the street!

Now, what kind of building would you site on this lot?


Maybe a spaghetti factory?  Does it matter, really?  It’s bordering one of Palo Alto’s finest neighborhoods!

    Perfect for a steel strip mill, rolling mill or extruding operation!

    The people who live on the other side of the creek should buy it together to create a DMZ.

    Yeah, but that flood zone isn’t Special enough.

    maybe a nano sized SLAC?

    If I owned one of the houses it backs against, I’d be trying to buy it. Your own private “annoy the hell out of the neighbors” strip to rollerblade down with a 80’s style boombox! Priceless!

    Think outside the box: dig a tunnel and smuggle drugs/immigrants from East Palo Alto to Palo Alto.

    This place reminds me that RBA is right in the middle of garbage.

    Just another reminder that Palo Alto is a sh!thole.
