Plans to redevelop the grocery store at Lincoln and Broadway will be before the Planning Commission next week for one of the first public discussions.
The property is currently home to a Von’s store with an above ground parking lot but the proposed project would redevelop the site into a mixed use concept with parking, ground floor retail (grocery store) and several levels of housing.
According to the project website, Albertsons Companies, one of the largest food and drug retailers in the United States owns the site. The company operates the Albertsons / Vons brands and has partnered with Related California on the 710 Broadway project.
“710 Broadway consists of market rate and affordable housing above the ground floor grocery store, plus additional local serving retail/restaurant/fitness uses located on both the ground floor and below-grade, and subterranean parking,” said the project description. “The 280 residential units offer a range of layouts from studios to three-bedrooms. 84 of the residential units will be deed restricted as affordable for 30% Income Households, 50% Income Households, 80% Income Households or Moderate Income Households.”
The project calls for a new 53,500 square feet grocery store on the ground floor with 1,500 square feet of outdoor dining space and additional below-grade storage. An additional 34,000 square feet retail/ restaurant/fitness uses is part of the plan with approximately 523 bicycle spaces and 354 vehicle parking spaces.
According to the description, the new grocery store will continue to be operated by the Albertsons Companies.
The development is scheduled for the June 16 Planning Commission meeting. The meeting will be available online and will start at 5:30 p.m. For more information about the Commission’s agendas, visit https://www.smgov.net/Departments/PCD/Boards-Commissions/Planning-Commission.
