High-end San Francisco retailers and restaurants are migrating east, this time popping up at the brand-new City Center Bishop Ranch, a 300,000-square foot shopping, dining, and entertainment destination designed by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano. A reinvention of the traditional suburban shopping center, City Center Bishop Ranch was an unusual choice for the Pritzker Prize-winning architect, but Piano embraced the challenge of taking an inherently uncool concept and elevating it. Storefronts (including M by Maggie Rizer, Frances Austen, Future Glory, Williams Sonoma, and West Elm) surrounding a central piazza are clad in ultra-clear glass, the upper floor is sheathed in corrugated steel, and rotating works by East Bay artists line the facade. This is one trip to the suburbs you’ll gladly make.
When: 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., Monday–Saturday; 11 a.m. – 7 p.m., Sunday
Where: 6000 Bollinger Canyon Rd., San Ramon
