September 2017 Downtown Dimension Highlights

Here are my notes from the latest edition of Downtown Dimension:
  • California High Speed Rail is trying to cut costs by using an aerial alignment through San Jose, which would result in potentially unsightly aerial tracks with support towers every 100 feet. This is despite the fact that they are planning to run at-grade down the Peninsula and underground in San Francisco.
  • The three-story former Plaza Hotel is now interim housing for up to 47 homeless people.
  • SoFA businesses are launching a new Farmer's Market on Sundays from 10am-2pm in the parking lot across from the California Theater.
  • Four pieces of Burning Man will make their way to Downtown as a new "Playa to Paseo" initiative.
  • The "My San Jose" app allows residents to report potholes, graffiti, abandoned cars, and illegal dumping.
  • Labyrinth Bar & Kitchen is now open at 45 Post st. in the former Peking House space.
  • Los San Patricios Cantina is now open at 81 W. San Fernando with an Irish-Latin theme.
  • Orangetheory Fitness will open this month at 111 W. St. John St.
