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

Two of four community-generated alternatives to Safeway's plans

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.

The second, primarily designed by RCPC Land Use Committee chair Stuart Flashman with assistance from architect Jerome Buttrick, "bumps up" the density of the project and replaces much of the surface parking with structured parking in a dining/entertainment complex.
