CenterCal Properties Closes on Purchase of Bay Street Emeryville
Reaffirms Commitment to Developing World-Class Destinations in the Bay Area
By: CenterCal Properties, LLC
Combining retail, entertainment, hospitality and residential uses, Bay Street Emeryville invites guests to escape into a casual village designed for strolling, shopping and entertainment. Organized in three city blocks connected by main street, the character of Bay Street Emeryville is drawn from the rich history of its bayside site as a place where people have gathered for decades to live, work and play.
"Bay Street fits in perfectly with CenterCal's platform of retail-driven mixed-use projects," said Craig Ramey, President Pacific NW and Bay Area, CenterCal Properties. "We are excited to share our vision of the project with existing and new tenants, government officials, and the community, all of whom have been very cooperative and will share an integral role in the successful development of the new Bay Street," added Ramey.
Major redevelopment is slated to begin this summer, and over a series of phases, aims to be completed by 2023. Currently, there is a pedestrian bridge under construction with completion planned for this fall that connects Bay Street with Emeryville's booming life sciences hub. The bridge will land at the Bay Street Food Terrace, which too will be renovated and filled with a curated mix of local and regional restauranteurs.
"We are focused on completing the food terrace and adding outdoor seating and plaza space throughout Bay Street where family friends, and co-workers can gather. When looking at this project, CenterCal is on the forefront of developing these amenities and experiences and will continue to evolve to serve the needs of our customers. Bay Street is ready for it's next chapter and we're eager to reintroduce it to the community," said Ramey.
Next, CenterCal will move forward with a wall-to-wall upgrade of all parts of the center and merchandising plan, while continuing to honor the character of the Emeryville area from the architecture, landscaping, and local art to the diverse tenant mix.
