Two RCPC-generated alternative proposals for redevelopment of the Rockridge Shopping Center

Here are two proposals prepared by RCPC members as alternatives to Safeway's plans for the Rockridge Shopping Center.  The first, prepared by Rockridge architect Glen Jarvis, keeps much of Safeway's proposal, but makes the shopping street an integral part of the design and opts to leave the Chase Bank in its current corner building rather than allow it a drive-through window.

As a session dedicated to a review of the most effective ways to prepare written comments on the City’s Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the College Avenue shopping center development, June’s Town Hall presentation attracted many Rockridge residents.

The RCPC board also heard a presentation from David Zystra of Safeway’s Property Development Centers division, who reported that the newest revised plans for redeveloping the Rockridge Shopping Center involve a slightly bigger expansion (130,000 sq. ft. versus 110,000 sq. ft in the previous proposal). They also include actual internal streets within the shopping center, rooftop parking instead of the subterranean lot previously proposed, and a new threestory structure on the corner of Pleasant Valley and Broadway, where the Chase Bank building is now.
