Broadway Pointe is a retail core and shell project encompassing an entire city block in downtown Walnut Creek. The site was developed to house nationally recognized retail tenants, supported by a large parking garage, and to draw from the retail energy of the highly successful outdoor mall across Mt. Diablo Boulevard.
To achieve these goals, BCV worked extensively with the Walnut Creek Planning Department, incorporating their planning guidelines and designing a location for a new city park within the block.
In order to blend in with the existing city fabric, the project was designed in a series of discrete storefronts, reminiscent of more traditional main streets found throughout the country. As part of the development, an Il Fornaio restaurant with an open loggia, recalling the design and character of a classical Italian piazza, is sited directly on the park, which will become an integral part of Walnut Creek’s trail system.
