December 2015 Downtown Dimension Highlights

Here are my notes from the latest edition of Downtown Dimension:
  • The St. James Park Management District is going to provide new funding for additional security, maintenance, and programming at St. James Park. Potential improvements include adding a cafe, dog run, or music venue.
  • Downtown Ice is open at the Circle of Palms through February 7th. Hours are 11am until midnight on most days. Across the street is Christmas in the Park and Winter Wonderland.
  • Jade Leaf Eatery is now open at 170 S. Market Street, specializing in Japanese noodles. It also has a stage large enough to accommodate bands and Jazz concerts.
  • Deluxe is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at 71 E. San Fernando.
  • Sushi Confidential is coming soon to 31 N. Market, Social Policy (same owners at B2 Coffee) is coming to the former Blackbird Tavern Space, and Pieology is coming to the former Fahrenheit space.
  • Petzi is the latest startup to set up shop Downtown. They make a smart camera and treat dispenser for pets.
  • Corterie has remodeled a 5,000 SQFT space behind Whole Foods into an urban wine cellar and tasting room.
  • SiliconSage Builders broke ground last month on a 100-unit condo project at 180 Balbach Street in SoFA, replacing an old used-car lot.
  • A new 140-foot-long mural has been finished in Fountain Alley on the side of the Lido Nightclub.
  • DASH ridership has had its strongest ridership month in seven years (this is the free shuttle that circles Downtown and Diridon station).

  1. Deluxe only offers breakfast and lunch right now. Though they do have their liquor license finally. They said they are still working on their dinner menu.
