Benicia has three commercial construction projects underway in a 2-block area. The Eastside, around East 5th and Military, is a commercial district that has seen new businesses in the past couple of years (such as Rosanna's European Bakery in Sunshine Plaza), and now is getting almost $3 million of new construction. Each project is valued at about $1 million.
