The Northgate Mall Redevelopment project proposes a comprehensive redevelopment of the existing mall into an open-air “main street experience,” surrounded by mixed-use development of retail and up to 1,422 residences. The Project proposes to reduce the existing commercial retail from 775,677 sq. ft. to 225,100 square feet and construct high-density multifamily residential buildings in the form of townhome units and apartment buildings ranging in height from two to seven stories.
The City of San Rafael has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed Northgate Mall Redevelopment Project. In accordance with CEQA Guidelines, the City invites agencies, organizations, and interested parties to provide comments on the Draft EIR. For more information on CEQA, please review the video below.

The City of San Rafael is pleased to share a primer video and slides to inform residents of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) process.
