January 2010 Downtown Dimension Highlights

Here are my notes from the latest edition of Downtown Dimension:
  • The 2009 Jim Fox Golden Nail Award goes to the developers of the Wilcox building (Billy Birks & Mezcal)
  • Plans for the future high-speed rail station in downtown San Jose call for walls as high as 87 feet, which some fear will create a "Berlin Wall" between midtown and downtown. The SJDA is pushing to reconsider an underground station.
  • Steve Borkenhagen will deliver a presentation on the San Jose Public Market Jan 13. at the Theatre on San Pedro Square, 2:30pm.
  • SLG Publishing is starting a new series of comic festivals. The next one will be Jan 16 at 577 S. Market St.
  • Fremont Bank is opening on 160 W. Santa Clara.
  • Cafe One changed owners and should have some new menu options.
  • Plans to improve St. James Park have been delayed due to budget cuts.
  • The last "Destination Downtown" event brought in over 500 potential high-rise condo purchasers, resulting in at least 3 sales and several reservations. (This event coincided with both a South First Friday and Christmas in the Park, great choice in timing).
