August 2011 Downtown Dimension Highlights

Here are my notes from the latest edition of Downtown Dimension:

  • The SJDA is celebrating their 25th anniversary on Oct 22nd at the US Armory (Second and Devine St.)
  • 80% of the San Pedro Square Market is leased. There is a soft opening on Sep 10th!
  • Hawaiian Airlines will once again be a key sponsor for Downtown Ice this year
  • San Jose's Public Arts Program will receive a $250K grant from the National Endowment for the Arts that will enable a series of temporary and permanent art projects connecting SoFA with SJSU and the Convention Center.
  • VTA will continue to operate the free DASH even without city funding.
  • Groundwerx has a iPhone app that allows users to report any issues (graffiti, etc) as they arise (it can even capture your location and allows you to take a photo). Download it at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/groundwerx/id4348477 
  • The Crown Plaza Hotel will be converted to a Hyatt Place hotel.
  • Myth is open at 152 Post St.
