The Redlands planning commission is considering the approval of a project that would overhaul the vacant Redlands Mall which has been closed since 2010.
The developer’s proposal is for a mixed-use five story project. 722 residential units would sit above ground level restaurant, retail and office space. Underground parking and open spaces with trees and walkable areas are also part of the plan.
The plan’s development of streets and walking paths would also allow easy access to the city’s future Metrolink station four blocks to the north.
Since the project exceeds the city’s limits on height and density, the planning commission will vote Tuesday, April 27 at 4 p.m. on whether to recommend an exemption to the city council, which would make a final decision at a later date.
