December 2016 Downtown Dimension Highlights

Here are my notes from the latest edition of Downtown Dimension:
  • The San Jose MarketCenter is expanding by 8,000 SQFT. New tenants include Blaze Pizza and Wells Fargo. There is still one 2,369 SQFT space remaining to be leased. The expansion will also include some much-needed additional parking.
  • Several political measures will impact Downtown San Jose:
    • Measure A will help reduce the homeless population.
    • Measure B provides funding for bringing BART to Downtown and repairing roads.
    • Measure F will help recruit more police officers and improve security.
  • Cubamex Sandwiches is now open at 325 S. First Street.
  • Rookies Sports Lodge will open this month in the former Billy Berk's location at 99 S. First.
  • Divine Wineries has moved into the space at 40 Post formerly occupies by Sherman Cellars and Red Light Wine Room.
  • TechShop San Jose has raised the $1 million needed to rehabilitate the former Zanotto's space on Second Street for TechShop machinery and is on track for a Spring 2017 opening.
  • SJDA offers funding for creative ideas that activate public spaces--if you have one email
  • On Dec. 18, up to 5,000 runners will participate in the TiVO Santa Run Silicon Valley, which benefits both Downtown Ice and Christmas in the Park.
