The Pleasanton City Council will consider a bid tonight by a Danville developer to build a 112,000-square-foot shopping center and office park in Staples Ranch with a focus on the Asian market.
The plan received unanimous approval from the city's Planning Commission Feb. 11.
The center, to be called Pacific Pearl, is being proposed by BHV Centerstreet Properties, a Danville commercial and retail development firm.
It would feature architecturally-pleasing buildings that would serve as a gateway to the east side of Pleasanton at the southwest corner of El Charro Road and Stoneridge Drive, just across from the San Francisco (formerly Livermore) Premium Outlets center.
It would be anchored by Marina Food grocery store, with an international food court and would also feature of variety of restaurants, retail stores and service businesses. Although the center would cater to a many-faceted clientele and taste, its focus would be Asian.
If approved at tonight's meeting, construction of the Pacific Pearl Center would start next year with the center opening in 2017.
The City Council meeting will start at 7 p.m. in the Pleasanton Civic Center, 200 Old Bernal Ave.
