you probably didn't want the home depot there either, so now you're getting low income housing. it's not going to stay a dirt field forever. should have just let the home depot go in.

The Vintage is NOT low income housing. It is a thoughtfully designed mixed use community with 345 high-end rental apartments and about 38,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving retail such as coffee, restaurant, bank, etc. 15% of the apartments may be offered at somewhat below market rate as part of an agreement with the city, but the apartments will otherwise be market rate, and the community will include wonderful amenities such as a large fitness center and pool, two playground areas, lushly landscaped open spaces and a central plaza that will integrate the housing with the retail and provide attractive gathering spaces and outdoor dining. There will be bus access to BART right in front of the site. I believe it will be an asset to Pleasanton.

I can't tell you how delighted I be!

I hope that the units are bright and cheery colors!

I know that there's likely to be tons of people of color who want to apply for an opening...I'll keep my fingers crossed!

I look forward to the KFC next to the high end gym!!!

Truly delighted!

KT, always good to have the developer chime in and give us the real facts.

Going to be quite a few disclosures for people to sign should they move there. Airport near by with it's flight path, train tracks across the street with train whistling each time it passes by because of the distance to the nearest crossing, PG&E substation behind it, and the controversial high-voltage KV electric line that goes right next to it. I was not sure it was even legal to put homes that close to that underground high-voltage line. That line was so controversial that the city would not allow it adjacent to residential neighborhoods. Maybe disclosures are not for renters, only people who purchase a property. I guess the plan is not to disclose all of this to the renters.

This information will spread like wildfire through social media.

jay, you write "That line was so controversial that the city would not allow it adjacent to residential neighborhoods". What kind of BS is this since it is well known the line continues down Vineyard between Montevino Drive to Bernal, where it then crosses the Arroyo to arrive at the substation. No residential there? Why the lies?
