The California Academy has signed a lease for a 20,000 SQFT standalone building over at 130 Almaden Blvd. in Downtown San Jose's CityView Plaza.. The plan is to build a Paul Mitchell-branded cosmetology school with capacity for 200-250 students and 30 employees. The school is planning to serve around 500 clients and will offer discounted prices on a full line of services such as cuts, colorings, and stylings.
The school is hoping to move in by April 2014, filling yet another vacant Downtown space.
