PLEASANT HILL (CBS SF) – A six-story, 284-unit apartment building just north of the Pleasant Hill-Contra Costa Centre BART station could be approved Tuesday, as the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors is poised to reject two appeals of the project.
The Del Hombre Apartments, proposed by the Houston-based Hanover Company, would be built on a 2.4-acre parcel on Del Hombre Lane between Roble Road and Honey Trail just northwest of the station. The property is in unincorporated Contra Costa Centre, just outside both Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill.READ MORE: Police Investigation of Shattered Vehicle Windows Temporarily Shuts Highway 17 Saturday
The two appeals to the project were filed in June, contending the apartment project wouldn’t fit in with surrounding land uses, would cause traffic problems, would be an anti-environmental development, doesn’t include enough parking and presents aesthetic problems, among other alleged shortcomings.READ MORE: Russian River Rubber Dam Deflated Due to Impending Storm
