Redwood City apartment community breaks ground at former Mel's Bowl site
March 20, 2013, 12:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report
A new 141-unit apartment community broke ground in Redwood City on the El Camino Real site of the former Mel’s Bowl with plans to open next year.

Designed by KTGY Group, The Lane on the Boulevard targets young professionals “who want to live close to work but can’t afford the price tag that comes with a Palo Alto or Menlo Park zip code,” said Jessica Musick, the project’s lead designer.

The firm did not announce planned rents.

The three- and four-story building complex is currently under construction by San Ramon-based SummerHill Apartment Communities at 2580 El Camino Real. The community includes one- and two-bedroom apartments and alternative transportation amenities like bicycle storage, electric vehicle charging stations and provisions for car-sharing vehicles.

The new complex’s name, “The Lane,” is a nod to its past, according to developers. The bowling alley was officially named AMF Redwood Lanes at the time of demolition but its historic sign and long history led many to still refer to it as “Mel’s Bowl.” The project was approved last year after the City Council denied an appeal. The developer, previously known as Urban Housing Group, later tried to ease frustration over the lack of affordable housing by including five such units.
