The Concord Naval Weapons Station (CNWS) Reuse Plan has solicited proposals from three master developers to develop the 5,028 acre site. The CNWS Reuse Project will begin Phase 1 with the development near the North Concord/Martinez BART station. The future phases will fan out from the initial development.
The three developers Catellus, Lennar Urban, and SunCal will be presenting their various proposals to Concord’s City Council on February 10th and 11th. Both meetings will be held in the City Council Chambers at Civic Center, 1950 Parkside Drive. The meetings will also be televised live on Concord Cable TV channels 28 (Comcast), 29 (Astound), and 99 (AT&T), and streamed on the City’s website, www.cityofconcord.org. The developers will have 45 minutes to present their proposals, followed by 1 hour and 15 minutes of questions. The meetings are preliminary in the process and the City Council and staff are not planning on making a final decision at these meetings.
The three developer proposals can be viewed at these links:

The proposed plan calls for the construction of almost 12,000 new housing units and 8,000,000 sq. ft. of commercial, industrial, and institutional space. Under the proposed development plan almost 3,300 acres of the inland area will be preserved as parks and open space for public use. All three developers have provided designs that differ from the proposal developed by the City of Concord.
Since the CNWS is adjacent to Dana Estates, the development will likely have an impact on the neighborhood and home values.
