The city of Pleasant Hill grew up after World War II without a downtown core. The city leaders wanted to create a city center focus for its citizens. Land was limited and parcels were small.


To assemble enough land, adjacent to the central freeway (Hwy 680), to create a retro-style downtown centered on a main street with retail frontage, entertainment (theater and bowling alley), civic (City Hall), public (fountained plaza) and residential uses.


With city assistance, we acquired over 80 parcels of land, completed all entitlements, developed and leased this 335,000 square foot, 75-unit award winning project. Today, downtown Pleasant Hill is the example of modern suburban downtown development and the winner of several awards.
