San Ramon Planning Commission to continue review of City Center Mixed Use Master Plan

Project includes development of 4,500 multi-family housing units in San Ramon

Ongoing development of the City Center Mixed Use Master Plan will continue during the San Ramon Planning Commission’s regular meeting on Tuesday, during which time city officials will continue their review of the proposed 4,500 housing-unit project.

This is a study session with no official decision related to the project scheduled to be made. Residents are invited to learn about the project and share their thoughts about its development.

Proposed by Sunset Development Company in the fall, the project consists of building 4,500 multi-family housing units covering approximately 135 acres in the heart of the Bishop Ranch property. The entire mixed-use project would take 25 years to fully build out.

Developers hope the new homes will allow the San Ramon corporate center’s estimated 30,000 employees live closer to where they work.

The proposed project would also include a 169-room hotel to accommodate business travelers and other visitors to San Ramon, a number of new parks and new parking structures that will replace existing surface parking lots, among other additional amenities.

The San Ramon Planning Commission is set to meet for its regular meeting on Tuesday, 7 p.m. in the San Ramon City Hall Council Chambers, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road.

SEVEN STORY BUILDINGS IN SAN RAMON! Find buildings that tall in Dublin or Danville. The existing business buildings will be dwarfed by these huge housing complexes. The fire department doesn't have truck and ladders to reach these tall buildings. The Bishop Ranch area will look like a maze of building. Parking is NOT going underground. It's going to be a boon to the local businesses, but not to those who already live here. If Sunset Development really thinks that people are going to walk or take bikes to work, school, little league games, school parent nights, music lessons, eating out, with children in tow, etc., they're crazy.
