July 2009 Downtown Dimension Highlights

The latest issue of Downtown Dimension is now available! Here are the the items that stood out for me:

  • Dine Downtown was a huge success! Restaurant week will certainly be back next year and there are even talks about having it twice per year.
  • Broadway San Jose will occupy the San Jose Center of the Performing Arts and already has a dozen Broadway-caliber performances booked.
  • The Civic Auditorium is receiving a $13mil upgrade.
  • Ross is spending $1mil to prepare their 27 S. First Street store for opening this fall.
  • $6.8mil has been approved for converting St. James and Julian from one-way streets to two-way streets. This will slow down traffic and should provide for a more "walkable" experience.
  • La Vic's expansion at the Santa Clara St. location is on track.
  • There is a new hot dog stand at the corner of Market & Santa Clara.

  1. Good to hear about Julian and St James. They fly a lot faster than a street like 13th, which funnels traffic to/from 101.
