TownCentre Commons was originally developed in two phases in 1991 and 1997 in Brentwood, a city in Contra Costa County, in the East Bay region. The property is located in the newly revitalized downtown area of the city, close to the recently completed Civic Center.

Currently the TownCentre Commons is 97 percent occupied. The new owners plan to spend an additional $1 million to renovate the property and its amenities. FPI Management will manage day-to-day property operations on behalf of Ridge Capital.
