Banc of CA Moves HQ to Brentwood

The newly-merged $36 billion Banc of California Inc., which designated Brentwood as its headquarters on Tuesday, is eyeing market expansion through the former PacWest Bancorp’s local assets.According to Debora Vrana, executive vice president and chief communications officer at the company, in conjunction with moving its executive team to the city, Banc of California continues to evaluate outstanding PacWest office real estate with the intent to expand its presence here.

The newly-merged $36 billion Banc of California Inc., which designated Brentwood as its headquarters on Tuesday, is eyeing market expansion through the former PacWest Bancorp’s local assets.

According to Debora Vrana, executive vice president and chief communications officer at the company, in conjunction with moving its executive team to the city, Banc of California continues to evaluate outstanding PacWest office real estate with the intent to expand its presence here. PacWest previously had the naming rights on its headquarters office in Beverly Hills as well as an office building facing the 405 Freeway.

“We expect signage on major locations to convert to Banc of California signage soon, including on the 405 corridor and in Beverly Hills,” Vrana said in a statement.

The move won’t relocate hundreds of Banc of California jobs to the area, as the company’s 250 employees now working in the city include former PacWest employees who transitioned to work under the new merged banner. In total, the company has over 2,300 employees.

In absorbing PacWest, a bank which teetered on the edge due to a deposit run and skyrocketing interest expenses, the new $36 billion-in-assets combined entity becomes Los Angeles County’s third largest bank – the same spot occupied by PacWest.

According to Banc of California’s Chief Executive Jared Wolff, discussions to move its headquarters to Los Angeles began after the merger was announced on July 25.

The executive says the city did not offer any incentives for the move, but while announcing the headquarters designation Banc of California donated $1 million to the newly created Mayor’s Contract Financing Assistance Program, which starting next year, will provide access to capital and low interest loans to small businesses that compete for city contracts.

“Los Angeles is the heart of California, it is the heartbeat of California business,” Wolff said. “Making it our headquarters will allow us to reinforce the commitment we have to Los Angeles.”

In the merger’s closing announcement, the bank said it will continue to sell off assets through the end of the first quarter next year as part of its balance sheet repositioning. PacWest and Banc of California already sold a combined $3.75 billion in connection with the merger to repay its wholesale borrowing and higher cost funding.

At its March 19 meeting, the Brentwood Planning Commission is being asked to approve a design review application for The Yard—an indoor/outdoor restaurant.

The Yard, located at 200 Oak Street in downtown Brentwood, sits on a ¼ acre site where Starboard Hospitality Group LLC (Alyssa and Anthony Roost) have applied for a Design Review Application which includes:

The proposed modifications to the existing building will maintain its architectural styling, while the site improvements will replace the existing asphalt paving on the front half of the property with artificial turf, bench seating, and outdoor games (corn hole, oversized chess/checkers, etc.)

The proposed hours of operation are 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily, though outdoor lighting will only be provided along the building exterior and under the front canopy, thereby limiting most of the outdoor seating area to daylight hours only. Outdoor speakers will be installed along the building’s exterior, and their volume will be limited to the 60 dB noise level limit established in Chapter 9.32 of the Brentwood Municipal Code.

According to the staff report, staff supports the adaptive reuse of the building until economic conditions support the full redevelopment of the property with an entirely new structure.

Outdoor Dining Area

The proposed outdoor seating will consist of picnic tables and custom benches constructed from heavy 2×6 redwood boards, with heavyweight cantilevered umbrellas constructed of power-coated aluminum and high-density fabric with an anti-UV coating. Though artificial, the proposed turf that will cover most of the paved area at the front and sides of the building will help to bring a family picnic-like feel to the outdoor dining area that is reminiscent of Brentwood’s small-town character, particularly with the addition of outdoor games that are proposed for the space.

The outdoor dining area will be enclosed by a 37-inch tall horizontal redwood board fence, which will include and expand upon the existing perimeter fencing adjacent to the sidewalk. This fencing will also be reviewed by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control for compliance with their standards for outdoor dining areas.

Staff supports the overall design for the outdoor dining area as it will complement the surrounding area while helping to activate the connection between the Downtown Core retail area and City Park.

History on the project Site:

According to the staff report, the site was originally operated as an automobile service station from the 1940s until the early 1970’s, when it was converted into a tire and brake service shop (the current building replaced an older service station in the early 1960s). The tire and brake shop then occupied the site until 2001. Thereafter, the property continued with a variety of commercial retail uses and, at times, remained vacant. The most recent previous tenant was a small pop-up market, Spinola Station, which closed in the first half of 2023.

In 2019, the Planning Commission approved a Design Review application for a new three-story commercial building that would have covered almost the entire site. While considerably larger in scale than the surrounding area, the design was consistent with the goals, policies, and development regulations of the Specific Plan, which requires new development to be between two and four stories high, built out to the sidewalk, and generally more urban in form. The proposed building was never constructed, however, and the previous Design Review approval expired in July 2022. The current owners purchased the site in August 2023.

The former service station building is currently vacant; however, the site occasionally hosted mobile food vendors on the weekends and evenings through the 2023 holiday season. The owners are currently performing a partial interior demolition of the building to prepare it for future reuse, and to determine the location and condition of existing infrastructure (structural members, plumbing, wiring, etc.).

Barnes & Noble to locate new store in Brentwood

Nearly two decades after opening East Contra Costa County’s only large book store at Antioch’s Slatten Ranch, the retailer will be heading down the road to a similar-sized site in Brentwood.The new site is 1.5 miles away at the Streets of Brentwood shopping complex, filling a prime anchor spot vacated by REI in 2014 – only five years after the outdoor sporting goods giant opened shop there.“They (Barnes & Noble) are staying in the market, which is good for East County,” said Jim Shepherd, a bro...

Nearly two decades after opening East Contra Costa County’s only large book store at Antioch’s Slatten Ranch, the retailer will be heading down the road to a similar-sized site in Brentwood.

The new site is 1.5 miles away at the Streets of Brentwood shopping complex, filling a prime anchor spot vacated by REI in 2014 – only five years after the outdoor sporting goods giant opened shop there.

“They (Barnes & Noble) are staying in the market, which is good for East County,” said Jim Shepherd, a broker for Slatten Ranch shopping center. “There aren’t really any other bookstores out there.”

REALTED: Barnes & Noble’s return to Marin brightens bookstore scene

Deborah Hanks, a spokesman for Barnes & Noble, confirmed the move and said the business is targeting an early fall opening.

“Our lease ended in Antioch and we have found a new home at Brentwood, which will feature our new layout and design,” she said.

The new nearly 21,000-square-foot store on Sand Creek Road will consist of book “rooms” created by a series of bookcases with each room designed specifically for a particular subject or genre. It also will include a cafe.

“The flow of the rooms encourages browsing and is intended to take you on a seamless journey throughout the store with the room locations and adjacencies transitioning through a series of categories relating to each other,” Hanks said.

The spokesman added that each individual store location now curates its subject selection based on customer interest.

“It will vary based on that market and the size of the store,” she said.

Janine Flanigan, also a Barnes&Noble spokesman, said it was exciting to move to a new space and use the new design, which is similar to the one in the Walnut Creek store, which opened in 2022. Another 31 locations opened with the new format in 2023, she said, noting the retailer is planning to expand with 50 more this year.

“The store is going to be absolutely beautiful,” Flanigan said, adding it will be decorated in a light-colored theme.

All 30 employees at the current site will be offered jobs at the new location and she said she expects the Antioch store to remain until the new one is ready to open its doors.

Assistant Brentwood City Manager Darin Gale said the city learned the retailer was looking for a new location last year and called the move “huge” for Brentwood.

City Manager Tim Ogden and his economic development team helped look for a new tenant for the vacant shopping center site, he said.

“The city has taken efforts to work with the property owner to identify users for that site,” Gale said. “And after almost 10 years, city staff was successfully able to work with the property owner” to identify a quality tenant.

Gale added that the city sees Barnes and Noble as “a great addition to the Streets of Brentwood center,” which has limited spaces still open. Prime tenants like Barnes & Noble also will attract more customers to support other small businesses at the center, he added.

“Bookstores (in general) are not expanding, but what I would tell you is Brentwood has the demographics that is attracting key retailers to the city,” Gale said. “What we have is a population that’s highly educated, with a higher than average disposable income for the region.”

The nearby Antioch location “was still pretty strong,” Antioch’s Acting City Manager Kwame Reed added, noting there are a lot of factors that come into play when deciding to relocate, from leases ending to better deals elsewhere.

Slatten Ranch’s broker, meanwhile, said he has seen “a great deal of interest” from other businesses in the 23,000-square-foot site that the bookstore is leaving.

“There’s a great retail synergy right at that intersection,” Shepherd said of the Lone Tree Way/bypass area near Slatten Ranch, with major retailers like Home Depot, Trader Joe’s, Best Buy and more within a two-mile radius.

“It’s a very strong market,” Shepherd added. “You know there’s a lot of interest still out in the Brentwood/Antioch market, so that’s a good thing.”
