2nd & Main is an exciting new 2.42+/- acre redevelopment project now in the planning stages for the northwest corner of 2nd Avenue and N. Main Street in Walnut Creek, which will bring convenient retail, small business offices, and casual dining offerings to Walnut Creek residents and businesses on the west side of Interstate-680.
The site now contains a cluttered mix of retail/office space, aging light industrial buildings and construction yards, as well as a local bar. The proposed development will create an inviting neighborhood center featuring a brand new In-N-Out Burger, a drive-thru Starbucks, and a renovated 2-story mixed-use building with office space on the upper level and a restaurant and retail space below.
Hall Equities Group conducted extensive uses into best uses for this site before arriving at the current plan, which calls for a complete overhaul of the site and removal of all existing structures, with the exception of the mixed-use building to be downsized and renovated. The resulting square footage on the site, including new development, will be approximately half that of the existing structures and well below commercial square footage allowed by City zoning, providing greater drive-thru and parking space. All buildings will be situated on N. Main Street for maximum separation from nearby homes, and the deteriorating fencing at the back of the property will be replaced with a concrete masonry wall to buffer sound. The removal of the unsightly light industrial buildings and construction yards, and replacement with attractive, well-maintained businesses, will visually enhance the area and provide added convenience for the community.
