Come hear the story of the Concord Reuse Project and how the plan has evolved over the last ten years. The project will redevelop the former Concord Naval Weapons Station to become a model for transit-oriented sustainable design. North Concord BART serves as a gateway to the 2,300-acre site. The project will include 12,200 housing units, over 6 million square feet of commercial development and hundreds of acres of parks, open space and greenways.
FivePoint and Hart Howerton are working with the City of Concord to develop a Specific Plan and EIR by the end of 2018. Rachel Flynn, AIA, Vice President with FivePoint Communities and Eron Ashley, AIA Managing Principal at Hart Howerton will present plans for this exciting project.
