Concord Reuse Project
Repurposing the Former Concord Naval Weapons Station
The Concord Reuse Project (CRP) Area Plan, adopted in 2012, will transform the former Concord Naval Weapons Station (CNWS) into a high-quality, world class project that will be recognized internationally for its innovative planning and development concepts. This includes developing a transit-oriented, housing-rich development anchored at the North Concord BART station. It will be the single largest new housing project in Northern California. The city is negotiating with Concord First Partners to serve as the master developer for the project. On November 30, 2022, the City and Concord First Partners released a proposed term sheet and staff report which establishes the development guidelines and community benefits that would make up this development and lead to the disposition of the property for development. The City Council will consider this proposed term sheet during a special City Council meeting on Saturday, January 7, 2023. There will also be community meetings held during the month of December to present the term sheet and listen to questions from the community. Visit the project’s website for more information.
