Preferred Vision Renderings

The Downtown Dublin Preferred Vision (approved in 2019) provides a roadmap to improving the retail district of Downtown Dublin over the next 30-50 years and includes three main principles:

  • siting of the town square, an approximately one-acre park envisioned to become Dublin’s social center,
  • a new street grid network, and
  • the Downtown character.

The Vision is a guide and future development won’t necessarily look exactly like renderings shown on this webpage, however the City’s consultants created these renderings to show one version of what is realistically possible over time:

View Looking into the Town Square 

The Town Square is the central gathering space in Downtown Dublin. It is a plaza and a park that brings people together for a meal, to meet up, to go shopping or to relax during the work day.

This view (looking south towards Dublin Blvd.) is set from one of the perimeter buildings that overlooks the Town Square. The Town Square is the central gathering space in Downtown Dublin, with a variety of spaces for all to enjoy and people-watch.

View looking north from the corner of Dublin Blvd. and Golden Gate Drive 

The view across Dublin Blvd. is an extension of the existing Golden Gate Drive that connects to the West Dublin/Pleasanton BART Station. This gateway to the Downtown gives a peek into the Town Square and invites the community for a visit.Rendering of view from the corner of Dublin Blvd. and Golden Gate Drive

From above, it’s possible to see how mixed uses are configured. Blocks are designed to allow for parking structures to be hidden by buildings that surround them. There is enough space for courtyards in the middle and to mix smaller and larger buildings.
