When the 360 Residences high-rise tower was completed years ago in Downtown San Jose's SoFA District, it came with over 11,000 SQFT carved out for retail across seven different units. Unfortunately, most have been sitting vacant throughout the building's history. The first unit to be leased went to a Subway on Market Street (to complement the other 5 Subways Downtown I presume). The second was only leased about a year ago to The Sliding Door Company. Now it looks like 360 Residences is finally going to fill up the majority of its retail spaces.
A photography studio called JP Impressions is taking a spot on South First Street next to The Sliding Door Company. I think this will be a great fit in the artsy district and hopefully they will participate in South First Fridays and other SoFA events. On the corner of Market Street we will be getting Voltaire Coffee House--which I believe is an independent store--and a place called Mitea which I think is a tea shop.
After these new businesses move in, there will only be two retail units left at 360 Residences... a huge improvement over the vast empty spaces on the building's ground floor over the last 6 years.
