Residential plans will be up for approval today for 130 Market Place in San Ramon, Contra Costa County. The plans have been significantly reduced due to public pressure, adding just 44 residences instead of the initial 284-unit proposal. KTGY Architects is responsible for the design.
The plans will create 90,440 square feet of floor area across the 44 residences and Starbucks, covering 2.2 acres, with 1.04 acres of common open space and 0.5 acres of private open space. Of the 44 units, 40 will be single-family detached condominiums, and four will be junior ADUs.
There will be five different floor plans for residents to choose from, ranging from 2,183 to 2,309 square feet each. Each single-unit building will include a two-car garage. Additional parking will be included for six guests. Bicycle parking is not specified.
KTGY is overseeing the design. Townhouse styles will vary between bungalows and modern farmhouse schemes. Facades will include flat concrete tile roofing, stuccos, railing, cementitious board and batt siding, and stone veneer.
Ripley Design is responsible for landscape architecture. The firm’s focus will be the backyard gardens and open space, to be decorated with some trees and shrubs. The public paseo at the center of market Place will include turf grass. The mid-block common space extends from the inner-lot road to the market’s parking lot.
CBG is the civil engineer. Demolition will be required for the 2.86-acre property, including the former Nob Hill Foods store, a former cleaner shop, a hair salon, and pharmacies. An existing Starbucks cafe will remain. The timeline for construction and completion has yet to be established. TRC Retail, the shopping center owner, is responsible for the application.
The San Ramon Planning Commission is scheduled to meet today, February 7th, starting at 7 PM. For more information about how to attend and participate, see the meeting agenda here.
