LINQ at Berryessa Station

A new transit-oriented development is set to break ground in Berryessa this August and be ready for occupancy well before BART's arrival in 2017. The developer is Republic Family of Companies and the project is called LINQ at Berryessa Station.

In the plans are 230 residences with a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom units. Amenities include a pool, fitness center, skydeck (rooftop patio?), landscaped garden with BBQs and a gazebo. The ground floor will have 12,000 SQFT of retail space, and I'm really hoping they won't all be national chains. Also part of the project is a new one-acre park.

LINQ looks like it will be about five stories tall and will be an easy walk to the BART station. Light rail will be a one station hop away and several freeways are within two miles (101, 680, 880). I wish it was taller, but overall this looks like another interesting project that we have BART to thanks for.

  1. And, just steps away from the Penitencia Creek Trail (now under development) and future trail work along Coyote Creek.

  2. Due to the transit and biking options near the location, hopefully they will follow the lead of the rest of the world these days and adjust auto parking capacity at the site to encourage use of alternate transportation, as mitigation for increases congestion. Improvements in local pedestrian and bike infrastructure to the site should accompany the construction to make the project holistic. Just saying its 'near' alternate transportation does not necessarily help if they step out of the door and have no safe way to cross the road near the complex, etc. Its time to think about how to make local communities work better around these new developments, vs just plopping them down and hoping for the best.

  3. Unfortunately the city mandates a minimum number of parking spaces so they can't just put in an arbitrary number, even if it actually promoted use of public transit.

  4. Why isn't anybody talking about a live/work village right at the rapid transit station where the Flea Market sits? No streets to cross, direct access to trails.
