Vision

Concord First Partners team vision is inspired by the Concord Reuse Project (CRP) Area Plan. The plan’s highly detailed vision and goals are the products of a clear distillation of the extensive and thoughtful work conducted by the city, stakeholders, and community engagement process and will serve as the foundation and guide for all our work. At the highest level, our team’s approach focuses on translating this vision into reality through a highly collaborative and integrated process with the city and project stakeholders.

Our vision is consistent with the CRP Area Plan to create an equitable world-class community that integrates a diverse mix of uses to create a vibrancy critical to successful and memorable places. To achieve this, we have built a team with proven expertise in the areas of transit-oriented design, innovation districts, higher-education planning, research and maker facilities, retail, hospitality, open space design, and diverse residential typologies that together support the CRP Area Plan program vision. Our team’s experience shows that this diverse set of land uses and development typologies will enable the CNWS to react to dynamic market trends and changes to ensure that forward progress remains consistent.

In addition to deploying a highly flexible and diverse land use mix, our next strategy focuses on the catalytic uses and infrastructure investments that enable the CNWS to capture a greater share of regional growth. With strong highway visibility and frontage, proximity to BART, and broad land area needed to create diverse uses, we see a great opportunity to create an innovation district at the CNWS to elevate Concord’s competitive advantages in the marketplace. Combining these strategies with a diverse housing program and open space and place-making strategy, Concord’s attraction of residential, commercial, and institutional growth continues to elevate.
