Costa Verde: Construction expected to begin next year on Genesee; mixed use project to include hotel, office and retail


The Costa Verde Revitalization Project proposal includes new hotel and office space in addition to retail space; with parking and pedestrian areas and connection to the Mid-Coast trolley station.  The project site is located on Genesee Avenue at Nobel Drive, on the northwest corner. There are some major differences with the new proposal compared to the existing layout. The proposal is a partnership between two developers – Regency Centers (shopping centers) and Alexandria (research and development office space). The project proposal includes 400,000 square feet of office space in 3 R&D buildings, a 200 room hotel, as well as 178,000 square feet of retail space.
