The San Ramon planning commission is scheduled to hear plans about demolishing the Golden Skate roller rink. The project would create 47 townhome units across 3.5 acres of land within the Crow Canyon Specific Plan. However, the application is significantly smaller than the 2017-era proposal for a 227-unit apartment building. Hassan Sharifi, the owner of Golden Skate, is responsible for the development through Windflower Fields LLC as the property owner.
The eight-structure development will contain 88,190 square feet of residential floor area, along with 9,030 square feet of private open space. The construction will rise to a roughly 38-foot pinnacle. Of the eight buildings, two will have five units, five will include six units, and one will consist of seven units. Each residence will have access to a private garage.
Residents will all have access to the community deck. Gathering areas will center around benches and a fire pit, while additional seating will be spread across the landscaped area. A community library box will be included.
KTGY is responsible for the architecture, with Gates + Associates in charge of landscape architecture. The Los Gatos-based developer, Seven West Capital, is sponsoring the project.
The hillside project is on the outskirts of the Crow Canyon Road retail hub, where residents can find groceries, cafes, and restaurants. The Bishop Ranch office campus is nearby. While County Connection buses are close by along San Ramon Valley Boulevard, the closest regional transit is the BART stations in Dublin.
The San Ramon planning commission will review the plans and receive public feedback today, October 5th, at 7 PM. For information on how to join and participate, visit the meeting agenda here.
