Document Description
The project would result in the adaptive reuse of a vacant Target building to include 65,209 square foot Safeway grocery store and 16,652 square feet of independent retail shop space. Circulation changes to the project site would include the installation of a new right-in/right-out driveway on San Pablo Avenue and truck loading area on Blake Street. The proposed project would also divide the existing project site into two separate parcels. The smaller "Hill Street Parcel" would be conveyed to the City of future development. While no specific development has been identified for the Hill Street Parcel, for purposes of this analysis it is assumed to be developed with 56 dwelling units and 4,000 square feet of retail uses. As specific development details (e.g. height, building footprint, parking configuration) are not known at this time subsequent specific development on the site would be subject to further environmental review.
