Commercial part of The Cannery in Davis coming into focus

New details have emerged about the commercial portion of the Cannery mixed-use redevelopment in Davis.

The information has come to light as Davis' planning commission prepares to review that part of the project, which consists of 12 acres on the northwest corner of East Covell Boulevard and Market Avenue.

In total, the commercial portion would be 171,000 square feet. Of that, the proposal calls for 66,000 square feet of solely retail space, a 22,000-square-foot medical office building and 19,000 square feet of office space. The remainder square footage would be in a series of mixed-use buildings, totaling about 65,700 square feet, with apartments, office and retail.

The commercial development would be split about evenly between eastern and western portions. The bulk of the strictly retail development, to serve Cannery residents, would be on the eastern side. Much of the mixed-use development as well as the standalone office space would be on the western side.

Buildings would be one and two stories, with up to 36 apartment units. The request the planning commission will hear includes bumping the apartment unit number up from 24, as well as increasing building heights from 35 to 45 feet. The commercial area would have nearly 600 parking spaces and more than 150 bike parking spaces.

Kevin Sheehan, managing partner with Kidder Mathews' Sacramento region office, said it's too soon to say when the commercial portion could be built. The residential part of the Cannery, to the north, is well underway and has a few residents already.

";It just depends on what the staff says," said Sheehan, who is representing the commercial side's developer, LeeLand Properties LLC. LeeLand is in talks to acquire the 12 acres from Cannery master developer New Home Co., with Sheehan representing them in the planned purchase. ";We can't move forward until we've got all the entitlements. But we're optimistic."

Some aspects of the proposal, such as higher building limits, would also require city council approval.
