CASTRO VALLEY FORUM
The R.T. Nahas Company, owner of Castro Village, is proposing to build a 25,000-square-foot TJ Maxx department store in the rear of the shopping center, adjacent to the bowling alley.
The site currently contains three small company-owned houses and a manual car wash facility, all of which will be demolished.
Randy Nahas, whose family built the shopping center in 1947, said the expansion is the 10th in the history of the center, which currently contains 141,000 square feet of shops, restaurants, services and entertainment facilities, and 16,000 square feet of office space.
“We have been negotiating the lease with TJ Maxx for a number of years,” said Nahas. He said the addition of the discount clothing store will not affect any other businesses in the center, which includes the Ross department store and Walgreens pharmacy.
“The whole concept is to bring another business to town for people to not have to go to Pleasanton or Dublin to do their shopping,” said Nahas.
The proposal will require a reconfiguration of the parking lot behind Safeway. It is set to go before the Castro Valley Municipal Advisory Council’s meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 25 at 6 p.m. in the Castro Valley Library.
