TMG redevelops controversial former flea market site in Southern Marin into mixed-use project

TMG structured a unique partnership of non-profits, including BRIDGE Housing of San Francisco, community groups and the County of Marin to develop a master plan and programs for the community that overcame political opposition by featuring affordable homes, first-source hiring, job training, childcare, transit hub, freeway interchange improvements, seismic improvements and community service facilities, including parks and a library.

The Marin City USA project transformed an underutilized property into a vibrant, revenue-generating community, winning the American Planning Association Advocacy Planning Award for exceptional coordination and benefits to the local community. Funding for the project was obtained from Security Pacific, Bank, CalPERS, the U.S. Department of Transportation, Caltrans, the Marin Community Foundation, the County of Marin, the Marin County Redevelopment Agency and Union Bank.
