LinkedIn Middlefield Campus
LinkedIn proposed a new corporate headquarters in the City of Mountain View of approximately one million square feet to accommodate its anticipated growth and business needs. The project proposed the demolition of two existing site office buildings and the construction of three new, six-story office buildings and two seven-level parking structures on the site. Three existing, recently renovated, two-story office buildings in the central portion of the site were to be retained.
Mr. Schwarz of JHS served as an extension of Mountain View Planning Staff and managed the preparation and completion of the EIR for this project on behalf of the City. Mr. Schwarz was responsible for managing and overseeing the work of the EIR consultant team, reviewing all administrative draft EIR documents and notices, and coordinating with the project planner and other City departments as necessary. The primary issues addressed in this EIR included aesthetics, air quality, noise, transportation, and construction impacts. The EIR for this project was completed on-time (under the original EIR schedule) and within budget, with little public opposition.
