Dollinger Properties of Redwood City and the City of Hayward celebrated on Sept. 30 the start of construction of Lincoln Landing—the much anticipated residential and retail development coming to the former Mervyn’s department stores headquarters in downtown Hayward.

The project will bring 476 apartments and more than 80,500 square feet of retail space to the important 11.5-acre property at 22301 Foothill Boulevard.

As part of the project, Dollinger also has contributed nearly $1.7 million to the City’s trust fund for creation and preservation of income-restricted housing affordable to moderate, low and very-low income households.

Lincoln Landing will be the sixth residential or mixed-use residential development to break ground on Foothill and Mission boulevards in the last two years—each bringing new life and investment to vacant and underutilized properties.

It also will be the first major downtown project to begin construction since adoption of the City’s new Downtown Specific Plan in May of this year.  The Plan provides for up to 3,427 new housing units and 1.9 million square feet of space for retail, entertainment, office and other nonresidential uses.
