The city council in San Mateo, Calif., Monday approved the redevelopment of a 3.5-acre site that will include housing and a three-story self-storage facility.

The area to be redeveloped is the former headquarters of the San Mateo County Times. The 45,000-square-foot building housed the newspaper for 43 years until the operation was moved to a smaller office park in 2007.

The building will be demolished to make room for 60 three-story townhouses, 14 two-story single-family homes and a 30,000-square-foot self-storage facility.

The property owner, San Francisco-based Intracorp, faced opposition from nearby residents until the project developer proposed lowering the height of some of the buildings. Construction is expected to begin next spring.
