Sunset Office Plaza Zoning
Sunset Office Plaza is a commercial parcel with several buildings at the corner of Holmes and Concannon in Livermore. Facing very robust public pressure, on July 13 2015, the Livermore City Council denied a request by Sunset Development to rezone the parcel for residential use.
Sunset Development stated at the time that their intent was to raze the buildings in September 2015. As of August 2016 the plaza remained unmodified. Although Sunset asserted that the land would be available for sale only after the buildings were destroyed, they would not entertain offers while the buildings are stood. The new owner would be allowed to rebuild for commercial purposes and maintain the park area; retail and residential is not allowed.
The buildings were never demolished. In 2018 the buildings and land were sold intact to a southern California company for 9.1 Million.
