San Ramon’s Architectural Review Board is scheduled to hear plans for a multi-family proposal to develop 500 Deerwood Road in the Contra Costa County city. The proposal would create 57 units, of which nine would be priced at below-market rates. The True Life Companies is managing the development through TTLC San Ramon Deerwood LLC.
The 57 apartments will each include two to three bedrooms and bathrooms with varying floor plans. Of the nine below-market-rate units, three will be reserved for very low-income households earning around 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI), two for low-income households earning 80% AMI, and four for moderate-income households earning roughly 120% AMI.
The six-structure development will yield 121,320 square feet of built area, with 93,021 square feet of living area, 4,690 square feet of open space, and 28,070 square feet for parking. Residents will gain access to two-vehicle parking spaces per unit. Combined with 13 guest parking spots, the site will have a capacity for 127 vehicles and 57 EV charging stations.
Brentwood-based SDG Architects is responsible for the site planning and architecture. R3 Studios is managing the landscape architecture. The tree and grass-lined properties will feature structures rising between three to four stories with four to twelve units.
The property is within the 128-acre office and commercial area rezoned in the 2006 Crow Canyon Specific Plan. The rezoning is intended to create a new mixed-use community with new housing by one of the city’s freeway entrances and retail hubs.
5000 Deerwood Road is located along a wide, though quiet, thoroughfare connecting San Ramon Valley Boulevard with Crow Canyon Road. The site is nearby the suburban sprawl development, Lennar at The Preserve. The development, still under construction with some houses occupied, will build 740 units with a community park, site for a religious institution, and an educational facility on a 286-acre hilltop parcel.
The meeting is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, July 8th, at 2 PM. For more information on how to join, visit the city meeting schedule here.
An estimated timeline for construction and completion has not yet been announced.
