The project didn't get approval in Dublin either.

Dublin zoning changes to be hard to come by
Oakland Tribune, Oct 5, 2007 by Sophia Kazmi

DUBLIN -- Back in the 1990s, Dublin voters approved a plan for the eastern part of their city featuring specific zones for where specific types of homes, shopping centers and office buildings could be built.

Since that plan was created, the City Council has authorized changes to the zoning in areas located east of Dougherty Road.

Many of them pertained to office space, because of lesser demand for such in the last few years. The city has lost more than 1 million square feet of potential office space through the rezoning of two sites. One area was rezoned to host commercial space, and the other became site for more homes. This week, the City Council said enough was enough.

Rowland Development Corp. asked the council this week to develop either office or commercial space on a 14-acre parcel at Dublin Boulevard and Hacienda Drive that is zoned office. The City Council said no.

"We need to draw the line somewhere," said Councilman Tim Sbranti. "I think this is a good place to draw a line."

Rowland was proposing a Korean shopping center on half of that parcel. The 140,000-square-foot shopping centerwould be anchored by an organic Asian market, a gym and health spa and a convention center.

Shawn Kim, chief operating officer for the Fremont-based developer, said the project was a unique opportunity for Dublin and would be a regional draw.

But, said Mayor Janet Lockhart, "We felt it was an interesting project, but in the wrong place."
