Sycamore Crossing Approved Unanimously!

In January, with your support, the Hercules City Council unanimously approved Sycamore Crossing with a 5-0 vote… and we couldn’t have done it without YOU!

Since our first Open House in February of 2014, you and your neighbors told us exactly what you wanted to see in a new retail and lifestyle development for your community. With your input, we were able to design a project that adheres to the highest architectural and landscaping standards… and it shows!

On behalf of our development team, thank you again for all of your support and help in making this project one of our best yet. We still have much to do to get this project built, but feel confident that with your continued support we will get it done.

We look forward to breaking ground by the end of 2015 and serving the Hercules community for years to come!

Sycamore Crossing Approved: What’s Next?

As you well know, the Hercules City Council unanimously approved the Sycamore Crossing project earlier this month, a project that will bring a new Safeway, shops, restaurants, jobs and tax revenue to the City of Hercules!

The anticipated groundbreaking is projected for late 2015, since the property requires permits from federal, state and local agencies. In the meantime, this Facebook page will remain active so that we can provide our supporters and neighbors construction updates, and announce future shopping center tenants.

Thank you again for all of your continued support for Sycamore Crossing. We can’t wait to serve Hercules!

Mialeen WrightI'll believe it when I see it FINISHED. We broke ground on the water front, market square, the old ugly building on Sycamore how many years ago? More than 5, 10??? I lost count. I'll keep my fingers crossed that this one will make it. 🙏1 year ago   ·  6

Ronald VoseI am looking forward to this mainly because I am not happy with the customer service at Lucky's.1 year ago   ·  3
Susan TarvinSo proud of our City Council for backing this positive development for our City. Can't wait for ground breaking and the first opening of the doors. It's jobs, it's city revenue especially from the sale of reasonably priced gas, and it's great shopping for people in Hercules & neighboring communities. The first hugely positive economic sign for our City. Thank you City Council. Onward and upward.1 year ago   ·  2
Topher HoardBreaking ground at the end of 2015??? Why so freaking long?1 year ago   ·  2

James CeledonI think this will help tax base for Hercules, this also must be a Transparent process, soil studies must be very critical part. Can't have all this start to sink 1 year after opening!1 year ago   ·  2

Mary Van RiperLet's get it built I'm ready for a new place to shop as the Lucky's here in Hercules is horrible! When you live in a city that has one grocery store but you travel else where to do your shopping that has to say something for the grocery store that's here😠 I hope it doesn't take forever to get it finished!1 year ago

Leon ZhuIt takes 1 year just to break a freaking ground??? No wonder China has beat us to become the largest economy already. In my birth town, a small shopping center like this take less than 6 months to complete.1 year ago

Mialeen WrightNO Chick Fil A! No fast food! Good restaurants... Pet store with self washing tubs... clothing store... will Apple come? Probably not, not enough disposable income? Actually, I will just be happy to see a project started and actually completed with actual businesses that aren't realty, dentist, fast food or dollar stores. Stores you see at a mall like EmeryBay or Walnut Creek, not strip malls like we have now. Thanks.1 year ago
