January 2014 Downtown Dimension Highlights

Here are my notes from the latest edition of Downtown Dimension:
  • The Downtown Association's Design Review Committee awarded three golden nail awards for Downtown beautification:
    • The Gold Building (55 S market)
    • CityView Plaza
    • Orchestria Palm Court
  • Aavid Design Corp is moving its nine employees from Cupertino to Downtown San Jose.
  • San Jose's Department of Transportation officially opened the green, buffered bikeways along San Fernando from Cahill to 11th.
  • The San Jose Civic Auditorium was rebranded the City National Civic.
  • Essential Travel, a travel magazine based in the UK, said Christmas in the Park is one of the top 10 Christmas displays in the world.
  • A new Business Coaching Center for those looking to launch or expand a business in San Jose is available at:
  • Ike's Sandwiches is open at 75 E. Santa Clara.
  • Brix Nightclub at 349 S. First has been remodeled into the "Metropolitan" [Josh: I'm getting the impression that it is either no longer a gay club, or is at least trying to be more inclusive of those attracted to the opposite sex]
  • Caffe Frascati owner has turned a 3-wheeled utility van into a portable espresso station (it premiered during the last South First Friday).
  • 8 Treasure Restaurant is now open at 150 S. First, replacing Asian Gourmet.
  • Power Bowl is open at 132 E. San Fernando and features authentic acai bowls and detox drinks.
