Downtown Projects & Initiatives
In February 2012, given the loss of redevelopment funding used to enhance security, maintenance and marketing in Downtown San Leandro, the City began working with downtown business and property owners to explore the creation of a Community Benefit District (CBD). In July 2012, following a Request for Proposal process, the City retained New City America, Inc. to assist property and business owners in exploring the creation of a Downtown San Leandro CBD. In February 2013, the CBD Steering Committee, comprised of property and business owners, recommended a Management Plan for the CBD which outlines the level and cost of services as well as the assessment methodology.

The City of San Leandro began working with developer Innisfree Ventures II to develop a retail center at 1550 East 14th Street, the site of the former Albertsons grocery store, in August 2009. Current design concepts for the Village Marketplace envision a high-quality, Mediterranean-style neighborhood retail center of roughly 28,000 square feet. Confirmed tenants include: Peet’s Coffee & Tea, AT&T and Habit Burger. With negotiations in progress, the anchor tenant will be announced soon. The design concepts include additional retail and restaurant spaces with outdoor dining, and a public plaza, complete with gathering space and a fountain, a public art component and lush landscaping.
