Fieldwork Brewing Company, Roam Artisan Burgers, Williams Sonoma, West Elm, and Equinox Join Emerging San Ramon-Based Destination Center
San Ramon, Calif. – (February 7, 2018) – City Center Bishop Ranch is announcing new shopping, dining and lifestyle choices to the 300,000-square-foot specialty project’s diverse mix of tenants. They join the center’s entertainment anchor, THE LOT, a luxury cinema and dining destination, which will open with the rest of the center in fall 2018.
“Bishop Ranch has always stood for improving the quality of life for our customers and City Center is a big step forward in delivering that promise. With an exceptional offering in entertainment, food, shopping and fitness, City Center will become a place to visit on multiple occasions a week,” said Alexander Mehran Jr., president and chief operating officer of Sunset Development Company, developer of City Center Bishop Ranch.
Equinox will be the project’s second anchor and operate as Equinox San Ramon. The 30,000-square-foot location will feature a panoramic yoga studio with an additional outdoor yoga space, an outdoor pool with expansive lounge deck and stunning views, floor-to-ceiling windows, and more than 8,000 square feet of strength and cardio equipment.
“Our goal is to make Equinox San Ramon the ultimate destination in the East Bay for regeneration, fitness and community,” said John Klein, Senior Vice President of Real Estate for Equinox. “In addition to the spacious strength floor and our five dedicated studios offering Pilates, cycling, group fitness, barre, and yoga, members will also experience The Spa at Equinox, a Kids Club for child care, Earthbar café providing smoothies, organic juices, salads and wraps, as well as The Shop at Equinox, offering a curated selection of performance apparel from brands like Alo, Varley, Koral, Rhone, LNDR, Michi, Nike and more.”
Mehran added: “Equinox is an ideal fit for City Center because the communities surrounding Bishop Ranch are known for their active lifestyles, and residents who place a premium on good health and high-quality fitness centers.”
The center will also house a diverse array of fashion and lifestyle brands. These include M, a new venture by fashion supermodel Maggie Rizer and Alys Grace, a Bay Area-based upscale women’s clothing boutique. Williams Sonoma, Inc. will be bringing home and kitchenware brands Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn and West Elm to City Center.
“San Ramon is central to many of the Bay Area’s finest communities and we envisioned City Center Bishop Ranch as a collection that would meet the region’s under-served shopping and dining preferences,” Mehran said. “We see it as a big vote of confidence to have Williams Sonoma Inc., one of the most successful retail companies in the world who is located here in the Bay Area, choose City Center to open new stores to better serve their customers in the area.”
“We are excited to open the Fieldwork Taproom and Beer Garden at City Center Bishop Ranch and bring our fresh, locally brewed beer to the Tri-Valley. I grew up in the valley and we have been searching for the ideal place to expand our presence in the East Bay. City Center is that place. It will be a fantastic destination and we are pleased to be joining so many complementary merchants,” said Barry Braden, co-founder and owner of Fieldwork Brewing Company.
