San Ramon Civic City Center Underway

San Ramon City Center Downtown

Location of the long awaited San Ramon Civic City Center.

Ask any resident about the uniqueness of San Ramon and you will undoubtedly hear that the city is thriving with a strong business and community environment despite its lack of an official downtown area.

Since its incorporation in 1983, San Ramon has operated without a centralized meeting place. In 2007, the City granted approval for the construction of a City Center Mixed Use Project which became the first step in granting San Ramon an official downtown.

In October of 2013, the City of San Ramon announced plans for the design and construction of the Civic City Center.  Located on the corner of Camino Ramon and Bollinger Canyon, the Civic City Center will be spread out over 39 acres and encompass a combination of retail, residential, employment, entertainment, and dining experiences.

The San Ramon Civic City Center will also include a plaza equal to the size of a football field.  Approximately 635,000 square feet will be allocated for high-quality retail stores with 488 residential units built above the stores.  These new “mixed-use” buildings of retail and living space follow a unique trend similar to San Jose’s Santana Row and Danville’s downtown remodel.

Part of the new Civic City Center will introduce a 169-room hotel to accommodate visitors and business professionals who work alongside the businesses that comprise Bishop Ranch.  An additional 682,000 square feet will be allocated for a commercial office complex similar to neighboring office complexes in Silicon Valley and San Francisco.

Spearheading the entire project is Sunset Development Company which will kick-off the project with the construction of a new 45,000 square foot City Hall and Council Chamber; as well as, renovating and expanding the San Ramon library.

The San Ramon Civic City Center will mark a 20 year dream for many residents by providing an official downtown and family-friendly area.  The Civic City Center’s design and offerings will attract new residents, as well as, increase the value of area homes.  Join our email list and stay up-to-date on San Ramon Valley events.
