Retail Potential For Downtown Rohnert Park

Our vision is to identify the right mix of retailers to serve our growing and active population. At the center of our city-wide retail expansion is our new Downtown District. 

The vibrant mixed-use downtown will be anchored by a residential community with market rate and affordable housing, and highlighted by commercial uses focused on local and regional merchants and restaurateurs, a signature boutique hospitality venue, a central community space and seamless connections to regional transit and the surrounding community. Our vision is an engaging community, centered around people and experiences, not the automobile. 

Gibbs Planning Group - 2022 Retail Study

In December 2022, the Gibbs Group (a retail consultant) finished a retail analysis on the future downtown property. Assuming best practices, the future downtown can support between 65,000 and 160,000 square feet of new retail space. This assumes the downtown's commercial center is designed and built as a compact, walkable, integrated mixed-use center, implementing best-in-class architecture, public realm, urbanism, street, parking and retail management best practices
