A friend is inheriting some property and wants ideas for what to do with it. What would you do with 20k sqft real estate in Mountain View next to a freeway? The property is the only commercially zoned property in the neighborhood but could have zoning changed to residential. The adjacent properties will also be owned by family and could potentially be acquired for 2-3x the area. 2/3rds of the property is bordered by road.

    I’d call a professional in this space and get their advice.

      I’ve only seen a map of the plots. It’s enough space for 2, maybe 3 smallish houses

    • I'm questioning the different units you use in header vs. Body of the post 20.00 vs 20k

    Build a gigantic apartment building with commercial space on the lower floors. You'll be a hero to hundreds of people who need places to live.

    20k sqft of land isn't that big, it's roughly 2 small single home lots in a large city.

    Sell it. Get some developers onboard pitching the idea of a 4-5 floor commerical office building.
    If going residential you could legit build at least six single families on 20k of land.

    Or like the guy above said, sell it to Google.
