In June 2011, Council approved a project to reconstruct 16-acres of the 56-acre San Antonio Shopping Center. The applicant, Merlone Geier Partners, constructed 330 apartment units, a 65,000 square foot Safeway building and three retail tenant buildings totaling 26,200 square feet at the corner of El Camino Real and San Antonio Road. A one acre park is constructed on the Hetch-Hetchy right-of-way that accommodates a dog park, outdoor seating and an open grass area. The Safeway opened in April 2013, and the remainder of the apartments and retail spaces are estimated to be occupied at the beginning of 2014. The Phase II project described below includes the property on the northern project boundary, which was originally approved for a 175,000 sq. ft. retail building. A hotel and office building with retail uses on the first floor was approved in this location instead.
In July 2013, Merlone Geier Partners submitted plans for a Phase II development at the San Antonio Center. In December 2014, City Council approved a project to redevelop a 9.9-acre site, known as Phase II, at San Antonio Center. The project includes approximately 121,000 square feet of commercial, retail and restaurants; a 70,000 square foot cinema; 397,000 square feet of office and a 167-room hotel.
