The following projects have been approved for development by the City’s legislative bodies and are in various stages of implementation. Some of these projects are subject to Development Agreements, which are contracts entered into by the City and a developer to expressly define a development project’s rules, regulations, commitments, and policies for a specific period of time. These contracts reduce the risks associated with development, thereby enhancing the City's ability to obtain public benefits beyond those achievable through existing ordinances and regulations. Development Agreements are only one type of development commitment. Other types of requirements placed on development include environmental mitigation and improvement measures, as well as conditions of approval.
Each of these projects include a variety of public benefits, such as transportation and infrastructure improvements, open space amenities, new utilities, workforce components, and other mitigation measures and community benefits.

The Golden State Warriors arena plans to open in time for the 2018-2019 basketball season.
