August 19th Meeting:

What is Happening in Downtown Sunnyvale?

Sunnyvale Town Center is now Cityline Sunnyvale. After many years of delays, things are moving forward Downtown.The two-story steel structures just south of Macy’s have been demolished. The plan is to construct temporary parking and complete landscaping improvements to reopen the Redwood Square Plaza area to the public in the fall of 2017.

Also in progress is the completion of the three residential buildings, containing 198 residential units, and secure tenants for the ground-floor retail space. The three residential buildings are located on the southwest corner of Washington Avenue and Taaffe Street, northwest corner of Taaffe Street and McKinley Avenue, and southwest corner of Taaffe Street and McKinley Avenue. This is happening now!

At our next meeting, representatives from the primary residential Downtown developer, Sares Regis Group, will discuss their upcoming plans and answer questions.
