Los Altos Measure A – is that 2X, 3X or just 7 Percent Larger than Hillview Now?

Bottoms up Estimation of Hillview Interior Space

Both the NO side and Lalah MAYBE are using City provided data about the size of rooms at Hillview. It would be disruptive to ask to measure the insides of these rooms to double check, I think.

Los Altos Measure A – Hillview Center Interior Utiliization, Shares of Space

The above two tables are worth some study. The total bottoms up calculated space of 25,825 can be examined by category of use as shown in the lower table.  Some key categories are “tenant” occupied vs. Rec. Dept occupied and “overhead” vs. non-overhead.  In particular the last two lines show that the ABA architect and the city say 69.1% of the Hillview interior is for “program” and 30.9% is for “overhead.”  But because ordinary citizens don’t think of the leased/loaned spaces as Rec. Dept. programming, we citizens see only 37.7% as program space now.
