We’d like to put forth our commitment to being a “good neighbor” with the surrounding residents and businesses in the area. This philosophy informs our approach and is why we have made the effort to solicit input from the community as an integral part of our planning process, rather than relegating it to an afterthought. The plans illustrated on this site are, at this time, conceptual. We’ve been fortunate to have received a lot of great feedback from our outreach events…and here’s some of that preliminary input.
After 50+ individual meetings and events with the local residents, community leaders, associations, coalitions, stakeholder groups, local business owners, and neighborhood groups, we have come up with this conceptual design.
Our current conceptual design seeks to vacate a 60-yard portion of Hope Street and incorporate a 7-story section set back off the street with tiered lower elevations toward the neighborhood.
Our latest events have been our Town Hall open houses, which we hosted throughout July and our taco truck event at Fairmont Park on July 15th. These public events, coupled with extensive outreach to individual residents, community leaders, and local businesses have enabled us to confidently say this is truly a community-oriented development. We continue to modify our plans as we receive your input as we make best efforts to accommodate as many of your concerns and ideas into the Castro Commons plans as we can.
Some of the feedback we’ve received has been both pro and con and additionally addressed some of the below topics:
GPR Ventures was pleased to sponsor the main stage at the 2022 Mountain View Art & Wine Festival.
We take pride in our involvement with our local communities and strive to invest in the people and organizations around us as much as we invest in ourselves.
Whether it's a festival 'round the block, complimentary food for the intimate neighborhoods, or the revitalization of a beloved park and a goal to increase housing supply, GPR is always looking to make a significant and lasting impression on the local community around us.
