I attended the San Ramon City Council meeting, whereby Sunset Development presented the plans for the San Ramon City Center-Downtown. There have been some changes to the original plans, both architectually and size.

The new center will be approximately 300,000 sq. ft.  smaller than planned, due to no major department stores as tenants. Sunset Development has done extensive research regarding the trends for shopping malls and their intent is to make the San Ramon City Center more of a place to meet friends, dine at the restaurants or just stroll the promenade in addition to shopping.

The renditions of what the Center will become is exciting. The Center will consist of restaurants, retail, commercial, residential, movie theater, ice saking rink in the winter and a hotel when it is completed. There are two phases to the project.

It is anticipated that the shovels will hit the ground early 2015 and the opening will be in 2016.
