Alternative Concept 2:
Connected Villages
“Green Corridors”


A focus on transit villages allows for a significant, new, diverse development balance while maintaining at least half of the site in parks, recreation and open space. Living and working options are extended to Concord residents and others, offering a potential sustainable lifestyle with mixed use, walkable neighborhoods and transit oriented living along with single family housing.

The connected villages will be realized over a number of decades, at each phase offering a range of housing options from higher density to lower density. Jobs and retail development will be found both near to BART and along Highway 4, with opportunities for community and institutional facilities throughout the site.

A system of Green Corridors link existing neighborhoods into the site and create a green buffer along the existing city edge. A high capacity transit service would serve the entire site connecting villages on site and linking them to downtown and existing neighborhoods.

  • Open space on the ridgeline and creek with added green corridors linking city parks and recreation areas to larger open space
  • Major transit oriented development at BART with mixed use housing and jobs
  • 40% single family and 60% multi-family residential development including town homes, apartments, and condominiums
  • Choice of transportation modes for residents and for workers
