In bringing City Center Bishop Ranch to life, Renzo Piano—one of the world’s renowned architects—was inspired by the stunning natural surroundings of San Ramon’s rolling hills and the beloved public squares of the old world. From there, a dynamic collaboration between the Renzo Piano Workshop and Sunset Development bloomed. Their vision was simple: to create a new kind of lifestyle destination in the Tri-Valley. It’s not just a vibrant marketplace, an escape, or a meeting place—though it is all those things and more. City Center is the new heart of downtown San Ramon, nurturing community, commerce and culture.
