South Sonoma Business Park (Cotati Commons: Lowes)

The proposed Cotati Village project is a portion of the larger Cotati Commons project (also previously known as the South Sonoma Business Park (SSBP)project). It was originally envisioned in 2001 and proposed to develop six parcels totaling approximately 35 acres with 650,000 square feet of office, retail and corporate facilities in western Cotati. The City prepared an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to analyze the potential environmental impacts of the proposed development and an alternative project analyzed in this EIR “The Orchard Plan Alternative” which included 582,000 square feet of mixed office and retail uses and 50 residential units, was formally adopted by the City in May of 2001. Mitigation for wetland and California Tiger Salamander impacts was conducted and the entire project site was mass-graded shortly after adoption.

This original vision for the SSBP never came to fruition and over the next several years, individual properties within the original project boundary came forward to develop (Lowes & The Cotati Cottages), updating the environmental analysis as needed to address the potential CEQA impacts of these individual proposals not originally analyzed and addressed in the SSBP Orchard Plan Alternative EIR. Undeveloped portions of the original SSBP were entitled but have yet to construct the approved projects (Cotati Village for example), while other parcels originally included within the SSBP project have not yet proposed any new development. As of summer 2019, there continues to be strong interest in developing this area in western Cotati, and construction of past entitlements and new revised projects are likely to be seen in the coming year. Below are all of the associated proposed and City approved documents related to the project.

Cotati Hotel and Market Hall
The City is currently reviewing a proposal for a new 153-room hotel to be located at the south-west corner of Old Redwood Highway and Gravenstein Highway. The project proposes to remove the existing park-and-ride lot and construct a four-story hotel, approximately 20,050 square feet in size. The project also proposes a 5,650 square foot Market Hall and lounge, available to the general public, to provide retail & restaurant amenities and a small gathering area for fundraisers and musical events.

Wayfinding Program
WayfindingThe City is creating a wayfinding system to assist residents and visitors in navigating our trails and bike paths safely and efficiently, locating desirable landmarks and important facilities, as well as creating needed connections to regional systems. This program began design work in fall of 2019 and construction started in Spring 2020. Project completion is expected in late 2020 or early 2021.


Cotati StationCotati Station
Next to our new train station on Santero Way, a mixed use development consisting of 74 apartment units, commercial space, a new public park, and additional parking for resident or commuters. Construction timing is uncertain, given the financing impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic however the developer is actively seeking options to begin construction. The approvals will remain valid through at least October 2021.

Kessing Ranch Subdivision
Kessing RanchA new single family home development at the prominent corner of Old Redwood Highway and Valparaiso Avenue has been approved by the City Council. The project includes 40 new market rate homes, as well as 7 for-sale affordable homes. Thirty-five percent of the units will be sold with photovoltaic panels installed and all will be prewired for solar. Storm water treatment and protected wetland areas will include interpretive signage to educate the public on low impact development techniques and the importance of naturally functioning systems and a new public park will be created around a historically significant stone structure. This project broke ground in 2019 with construction and sales of the market rate homes proceeding shortly after. The process to determine eligibility and sales of the affordable units is expected to begin in winter of 2020.
