Alexander Mehran, Jr. is the President and Chief Operating Officer of Sunset Development Company in San Ramon, California. He will join us for Community Economics Day to discuss Bishop Ranch: Economic Development for a community, focusing on the San Ramon City Center and surrounding walking district, and vision for Bishop Ranch Park.
Sunset is a diversified real estate organization focused for the last 40 years on the development of Bishop Ranch, a nationally recognized 585-acre project in San Ramon with 10 million square feet of office, hotel, shopping and research facilities and a daytime population of over 30,000 workers in 600 diverse companies. Alexander represents the third generation of family leadership at the Company founded in 1951 by his grandfather, Masud Mehran.
In 2018, Sunset will open its much anticipated City Center project with an iconic design by Renzo Piano and a modern mix of entertainment and retail. City Center and the apartments to surround it will establish Bishop Ranch as a mixed-use regional node. In concert with his father, Alex Mehran Sr., the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Alex oversees all of the operations at Bishop Ranch including the leadership of Sunset’s 160 employees across its eight divisions; development and construction, leasing, finance, legal, marketing, property management, design and retail.
