The Peninsula Arts Guild (PAG) is proposing to renovate the existing Guild Theatre cinema facility into a live entertainment venue. Through the construction and addition of a finished basement and a new second floor, the building floor area would increase from 4,172 square feet to approximately 10,854 square feet. The project requires amendments to the El Camino Real/Downtown Specific Plan and consideration under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
The City Council reviewed and approved the proposal at the meetings of May 22 and June 5, 2018. The Housing Commission and Planning Commission previously reviewed and made recommendations for approval.
The project is currently under construction. Between January 2020 and July 2021, intermittent lane closures on El Camino Real and Ravenswood Avenue may be required to allow for access and safe maneuvering of construction equipment.
