Monarch Bay Shoreline Development Project

Bay Fair Transit-Oriented Development (TOD)


The Monarch Bay Shoreline Development Project is a planned development along the northern portion of the San Leandro shoreline, which has a vision to create a regional destination that connects the community with the Bay and provides enhanced recreational and community amenities.  The public-private partnership with Cal-Coast Companies is planned to include up to 500 new housing units for families and individuals of varying incomes, a hotel, restaurants, small retail space, new open space and an extension of the San Francisco Bay Trail.

Bay Area TOD

The Bay Fair TOD Specific Plan (PDF) was adopted by the San Leandro City Council in 2018, following an extensive community engagement and planning process. This project is expected to implement a walkable, transit-oriented community hub which includes public gathering and spaces mixed with retail, neighborhood services, housing, and office space. The City of San Leandro will also be updating the Zoning Code to add new design and development regulations for the Bay Fair area, as recommended under the approved Plan.

Alvarado Street will be transformed into a tree-lined, well-lit, and pedestrian-focused environment to improve pedestrian safety and security. 899 Alvarado has been designed with ground-level entries to individual apartments to activate the public realm along Alvarado and Lola Streets. Where there once were weeds, there will be trees. Where there once was a chainlink fence, there will be spaces open to the community. Where there once was an empty plot of land, there will be much-needed homes.

899 Alvarado includes two residential buildings, each surrounding a landscaped central courtyard with resident amenities, ideal for gatherings and relaxation. The two residential buildings will be constructed over a two-level parking structure, one level at-grade and one below-grade. The garage will be accessible for residents through three secure entries. Vehicular and emergency vehicle access will be provided between and around each building.

A diverse mix of apartments–from studios to 3-bedrooms in multiple layouts–will serve a variety of housing needs and lifestyles. Each individual apartment will feature energy efficient appliances including in-unit washer/dryer, dishwashers, ranges, and refrigerators. Select apartment homes include private balconies. 899 Alvarado will be designed to accommodate high-speed fiber optic internet access.


The 42 rental units include forty (40) 980 sq. ft. two-bedroom two-bath units, and two (2) 1380 sq. ft. three-bedroom three-bath units. A total of 63 parking spaces, 58 on-site (including three AB1100 Bonus Spaces) and five off-site curbside parking spaces are included.

The 1388 Bancroft project is constructed out of high-quality materials and with an attractive design. It will be built with local union labor led by our General Contractor Nibbi Brothers.

Our spacious two-bedroom two-bath, and three-bedroom two-bath units, are designed to provide maximum flexibility for 21st Century households. The layouts work well for families with children and/or two or more working professionals who desire their own bedroom/bathroom.
