Two meetings will be held about the future of San Vicente. The first is a town hall sponsored by the Brentwood Community Council about the San Vicente Scenic Corridor Specific Plan, on July 26 (for more info, click here). The Specific Plan is a set of guidelines which governs various facets of the boulevard. The other meeting is at the Design Review Board on July 28 (details here), which will hear a proposal about a replacement of the Peet’s Coffee building. Both meetings are open to the public.

The owner of the Peet’s Coffee building, which includes Pizzicotto, Gaucho Grill, Subway, First Republic Bank, and the parking lot to the west, intends to move forward with a plan to build a five-story mixed use complex with ground floor retail and four stories of residential above. The residential will be 3,000 square foot apartments or condominiums. The developer needs approval of several variances, including exceeding the height limitation for new construction.
