Rose Estates

On March 12, 2024 the City of Benicia received a Development Application for Rose Estates, a proposed site development of the 527 “North Study Area” property for residential and commercial/industrial uses. Although the City was scheduled to complete the North Study Area community visioning process in Fall 2023, that effort was paused due to the preliminary housing application that was filed. The applicant, WCHB LLC, asserts that the Development Application is filed under provisions of the so called “Builders Remedy” (Government Code section 65589.5(d)(5) of the Housing Accountability Act).The project proposes 1,080 dwelling units (excluding State Density Bonus Law units) and approximately 250,000 square feet of nonresidential use. 

On April 10, 2024 the City issued correspondence to the applicant documenting that the project application is deemed incomplete and identifying the additional information that must be submitted.
