April 2016 Downtown Dimension Highlights

Here are my notes from the latest edition of Downtown Dimension:
  • General sales tax and business tax hikes have been proposed in order to help fund public services.
  • Two plans are in the work to house the homeless, a permanent housing project on 278 N. Second Street and a temporary housing facility at the former Plaza Hotel.
  • More food and drink openings!
    • Our House at 185 Park features farm-to-fork cuisine
    • Social Policy is now open at 200 S. First, a sister coffee shop to Bellano Coffee and B2 Coffee
    • 2nd Story Bakeshop is a new bakery at 138 E. Santa Clara
    • Ola's Exotic African Coffee and Tea is open at 30 E. Santa Clara, Suite 120
    • Olla Cocina at 17 N. San Pedro offers a fresh take on traditional Mexican favorites.
  • A seven-story building is moving forward near Whole Foods. It would have 35,000 SQFT of office and commercial space as well as 164 apartments.
