The owner of Pacific Commons has submitted a Concept Site Plan that includes a 16-plex movie theater on turf that two years ago was slated to become the Oakland Athletics’ home field.
Catellus Development Corp. is proposing 13 new commercial buildings and 1,750 new parking spaces bounded by Bunche Drive, Boscell Road, Curie Street and Christy Street. The development would sit directly across Curie Street from Costco and Lowe’s — two of the three stores that wanted nothing to do with the A’s.
The anchors would be a 139,516 big box retailer at the corner of Christy and Bunche and a 3,005-seat movie theater along Boscell Road.
The plan also calls for a children’s play area and a central courtyard.
More to follow in the paper, and hopefully a pdf of the plan for the blog.
