The Main Street Cupertino project was originally approved by the City Council on January 20, 2009. Since then, the City Council has approved several project amendments (May 25, 2012 and September 4, 2012) to allow various changes to the land use options, site design, and building footprints in order to facilitate the applicant’s requests.
On September 4, 2012, the Council specified the final architectural and site approval process and criteria for the project. The Council specified that the hotel building, public park, and entry gateway feature shall return to the Council for final review and approval, and the Design Review Committee (DRC) may approve the rest of the buildings.
The final hotel Architectural and Site Permit was approved by the City Council on January 15, 2013. On February 25, 2014, on a DRC referral, the Council approved the Architectural and Site permit for Shops 1, 3-5, 7 & 8, Pads 1-3, Town Square, Flex 1 and 2, Office 1 and 2, Parking Garage, and associated site and landscaping for the entire Main street project. The Council specified in the resolution that all of the remaining buildings (Loft Apartments/Shops 9, Shops 2, Shops 6, and Major Retail Building), return to the Council for final architectural and site approval.
On July 15, 2014, the City Council approved final architectural and site details for the Loft Apartments/Shops 9 mixed-use building and Shops 2 (to be occupied by Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar).
The City Council will review final details for the Major Retail and Shops 6 retail buildings, the .75 public access park, and the gateway feature at subsequent public hearings. The other project components are currently under construction.
