SAN JACINTO – The San Jacinto City Council approved a Site Plan Design Review Tuesday, June 5, for a new 9.51 acre commercial center, Commonwealth Crossings, to be developed at E. Commonwealth Avenue and San Jacinto Avenue.

The project is to develop a commercial center consisting of 9.51 acres into five retail and office buildings for 45,372 square feet located on the west side of San Jacinto Avenue at the terminus of Commonwealth Avenue.

The site proposes to host a new Sonic restaurant, 7-11 with gas station, a car wash pad, a 12,000-square-foot retail space and another proposed mix of retail or one major anchor along the back of the project site totaling 24,000 more square feet. In total, the center is set to host four new retailers with another 24,000 square feet coming in phase II.

It is the fourth and largest new retail project coming to revitalize San Jacinto Avenue. Adding Sonic, 7-11 and some 45,000-square-feet in new retail to the list that includes Starbucks, Aldi Grocer and Wienerschnitzel, which was approved earlier the same night, San Jacinto is enjoying a renaissance of new retail establishments on San Jacinto Avenue.

“The city is excited to welcome this new 45,000-square-foot development, Commonwealth Crossings, to San Jacinto,” City Manager Rob Johnson said. “San Jacinto is a hot market with great weather. The city is open for business, and we are thankful for Sonic, 7-11 and our other retail partners for choosing to do business in San Jacinto. We welcome them and will do our utmost to make them successful.”

Last year, the city completed a major facelift for San Jacinto Avenue from Seventh Street to Midway Avenue with a 1.1 mile, four-lane, pavement rehabilitation project that improved vehicular traffic and set the stage for more new retail and restaurant development.

“Let’s not forget about Mason Jar Ranch Bistro and Brew Pub, a 6,500-square-foot farm-to-fork restaurant and brewery, working its way through the development process, or the three new opportunities to partner with the city to develop Main Street properties,” Johnson said. “This 130-year-old, startup city has a lot going on with more to come – thanks to the new Soboba Casino Resort rising right before everyone’s eyes.”
