Mixed-Use Village Plan
Based on unprecedented community feedback and support, continued market analysis for users, and ongoing coordination with the City, Weingarten has revised its preliminary plan. We formally submitted applications with the City in mid-September to begin the process of annexing the property into the City and redeveloping the center as a “Signature Project” within the Cambrian/Hillsdale Urban Village area.
|Hotels||238 Rooms||2.00 Acres|
|Retail/Entertainment Center||108,900 SF||5.90 Acres|
|Podium Cluster Apartments||280 Units||2.29 Acres|
|Townhouses||64 Units||3.76 Acres|
|Convalescent Home/Assisted Living||100,000 SF||1.62 Acres|
|Public Park/Town Square||714,500||1.64 Acres|
Our goal is to create a unique mixed-use village for the local community that recognizes the history of the center and supports the future needs of residents and businesses in the area as well as wider City planning objectives. We appreciate that Cambrian Park Plaza has been a focal point for surrounding neighbors for many decades and want the center to continue this role, so we've included a town square along with many large plazas and a park where the iconic carousel will be relocated.
Weingarten engaged the respected local architecture firm Kenneth Rodrigues and Partners who used downtown Campbell, Los Gatos and Main Street Cupertino as inspiration for the design. The walking village plan includes shop retail, restaurants and entertainment opportunities focused on a town square along with many plazas and green space for eating and gathering, farmers’ markets, and community events, plus an additional one-acre park where the iconic carousel will reside.
A range of other uses are integrated throughout the site in a neighborhood street pattern that maximizes pedestrian connectivity and minimizes above ground parking. Other uses now include two hotels/office buildings, an assisted living community for seniors, and apartments along major street frontages where taller buildings are appropriate, and townhomes in the back are in scale with adjacent residents.
