Inspired by its second-to-none location on a site advantageously positioned and entitled to serve a quickly growing region, LBG Real Estate Companies (LBG) acquired the Richmond, Calif., property in July of 2017 envisioning a grand and contemporary master plan development for the East Bay region to live, work, dine and shop. Known as Hilltop by the Bay, property-wide reimagination efforts are now underway.

A core component of LBG’s master plan is The Shops at Hilltop. Leveraging a unique and culturally-curated remerchandising strategy to successfully transform the 1.2 million square foot asset, activities include major interior and exterior renovation work; new and dynamic wayfinding; and the updating of community gathering spaces where the company’s investment will proudly result in the revitalization of The Shops at Hilltop.


Perched above the San Francisco Bay complete with a beautiful panoramic view sits Hilltop by the Bay, a vast, fully-entitled 77-acre site that is quickly evolving to emerge as a walkable, mixed-use village that will bring its trade area a new, vibrant and flourishing community destination.

With zoning in place for immediate outparcel development, Hilltop at the Bay will be the future home of outlet and value retail, traditional retail, restaurants and eateries, entertainment, office use, hotel, and $3,500+ residential units.
