City council officials in Pleasanton, Calif., this week gave the go-ahead for a project that will eventually include an office complex and retail areas in this rapidly urbanizing suburb on Silicon Valley’s eastern edge.

A 500-acre hayfield south of Bernal Avenue will be home to a 745,000-sf office campus with 2,900 employees; 5,000 sf of retail space that will likely be a gas station; and a residential development of 481 homes. GHC Bernal Investors, a development partnership headed by Greenbriar Homes Inc., will spearhead the project.

In exchange for allowing the development, the city of Pleasanton will get 320 acres of land and a cut of developers’ fees. Challenges to Monday’s vote can be filed during a 30-day referendum period, which began immediately after the vote.
