BACKGROUND
The 5.75-acre project site is located at the northwestern corner of Benton Street and El Camino Real and consists of 12 parcels and is currently developed with buildings, roadways, sidewalks, and parking lots including approximately 101,207 square feet of commercial and light industrial space, 10 residential units, portions of Fremont and Sherman streets, and site serving infrastructure.
