The Monarch Bay Shoreline Development Project is a public/private partnership, between the City of San Leandro and Cal Coast Companies, LLC. The project is a comprehensive master plan for the northern portion of the San Leandro shoreline. The development plan includes a hotel, restaurants, housing, parking structure, and other community amenities. The vision is for the development to provide complimentary amenities to the citizens of San Leandro and create a regional destination that connects the community with the Bay and enhances recreational and commercial activities.
