When the dust cleared, Demmon Partners did not sign a union contract and the vast majority of the community, the local media and supervisors supported the development.

Rob’s real estate development experience includes a lead role in the securing entitlements for Demmon Partners’ development of 167 units on five acres of parking lot in unincorporated Alameda County that had sat vacant since 1995. Despite the project’s transit-oriented location and other community benefits, it nonetheless encountered public agency resistance and community opposition.

Adding to the project’s complexity was the need to subdivide the property, move a public street, and add a stoplight, parking and fire truck access. On the eve of review by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, four unions demanded that Demmon sign a no-bid contract and later appealed the project’s approval to the Alameda County Board of Supervisors. When the dust cleared, Demmon Partners did not sign a union contract and the vast majority of the community, the local media and supervisors supported the development.
