The two buildings will span two adjacent blocks in downtown Concord – and is conveniently located one block from Concord BART station and Todos Santos Plaza, the commercial and historical heart of Concord. The Grant is within walking distance of many retail options and over 30 restaurants. There is also good access routes to the East Bay and San Francisco, as the site is centrally located at the intersection of I-680 and Highway 242.
Hines has an experienced team for The Grant – including Architects Orange, design and landscape architects; Haven Design Studio, interior design; and Brown Construction, general contractor. Due to the coronavirus pandemic and through Brown Construction’s leadership, the on-site team are taking all necessary safety measures into consideration as part of the construction process.
This project is due for completion in the later part of 2022 and leasing is due to begin in April 2022. Hines recently also launched its first Build to Rent scheme in Europe, as they continue to expand their portfolio in the residential sector.
