The developer behind the Crocker Village project in Sacramento’s Curtis Park neighborhood has submitted an application to construct a large retail building along the new neighborhood’s main thoroughfare.

Petrovich Development filed the application Tuesday with the city of Sacramento for a 36,500-square-foot retail center on Crocker Drive and 10th Avenue.

No tenant is named in the application.

The application will require City Council approval. A council vote is not expected until next year.

The retail center is planned for the neighborhood’s “flex zone,” near an affordable housing complex that has been built. It is across Crocker Drive from a row of homes that have also been constructed. It appears to be just north of the lot where Petrovich has sought to construct a grocery store.

The representative with Petrovich Development who filed the application could not be reached for comment. Crocker Village was previously named Curtis Park Village, but was recently renamed by Petrovich.

Petrovich sued the city earlier this year after the City Council rejected his request for a conditional use permit to allow Safeway to build a 16-pump gas station next to a proposed store in the Crocker Village development.
