Summerhill Homes purchased a 2.4-acre site at 2850 W. Bayshore Road in Palo Alto for $27.5 million through an affiliate. The site currently has a single-story office building. Their proposed development would have 48 three-story townhouses. The rendering of the front of the townhouses is roughly similar to the Echelon Complex built by Summerhill Homes in 2009 at E. Meadow Cir. At the time of the purchase, the affiliate also obtained $45 million in financing.
Townhouses in this W. Bayshore area have sold for between $1.5 million to a little over $2 million. Summerhill Homes is likely to see sales of roughly $100+ million for the project. Of course, the state of the real estate market at the time the townhouses are offered for sale will have a large impact. View South Palo Alto townhouse sale prices and trends.
The site of the new townhouses is between Greer Park and W. Bayshore Road. The 22-acre Greer Park has five soccer fields, three softball fields, two basketball courts, a picnic area with BBQs, a skateboard bowl, restrooms, and more.
