Developers say they will break ground on a Hercules water front project during the July-September period of 2013.

Hercules Bayfront is a mixed-use transit oriented development on the waterfront of Hercules. The development partners are Oso Trabuco and Anderson Pacific.

The project will effectively create a new downtown on the Hercules waterfront.

Residences, retail and offices will be the primary elements of Hercules Bayfront. The project also will include open park space and be connected to a mass transit hub.

The first phase of construction will center on The Village, which incorporates approximately 750 market rate residences, office, retail and flex space, along with parks and plazas.
