Pleasanton Council to vote tonight on proposed Asian Gateway on east side

Pacific Pearl Center planned for Stoneridge Drive, El Charro Road

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.

Does Pleasanton/Livermore really need another huge mess of parking lots and buildings,not to mention the cars added? We are overwhelmed now, but no one seems to notice it ?! The quaintness of Ptown, is slowly being choked out by "improvements," now. The newest homes built in Dublin have not filled up yet,but if you do the math, it equals to a big, obviously, not thought, out disaster. Keep cutting the pie, and the pieces get smaller. It doesn't always have to be about dollars and cents.

Just wondering why the Danville developer doesn't take his project to Danville!! We don't need more traffic on Stoneridge Dr.

The sales tax revenue coming out of the Asian gateway will be huge.

I like it when the Town Square Moderator blocks a TROLL.
