Why is there still no real detail on what's going on at the old town and country? It's mostly all bulldozed now. So what's coming?

Either they have no clue or plan ... or they have plans and it is going to make some people on the board very wealthy and they don't want to let everyone know. Either way it's sad, as the downtown has been a a HUGE disappointment for years.

I'm excited about what's going on there now - it's great to see new buildings rising where the mall used to be. However, I am curious to see actual drawings or plans for the old Town & Country. I've read that it's going to be condos or retail/condos. But, no idea what it'll look like.

Supposed to be like Santana Row.

Hope they have a good marketing agent and management company to attract a lot of really good merchants. I know Mountain View San Antonio Shopping Center tried to revitalize and they were not as successful as they hoped. They need a good attraction to anchor the mall. Something that is found no where else or nearly no where else.

May be an REI (for starters...thinking of a store with a big draw and not found in many locations).

Anyone have more ideas on what should be there to make a strong presences?

These plans still don't have any information for what's happening at town and country, on the north side of washington ave. Half of the buildings over there have been torn down, and the other half are literally starting to fall apart. Just look at the beams around the Round Table Pizza there - they are falling down. It's amazing they're letting people walk under there still.

As for the town center, they've already got their anchor tenants - a hotel (with fancy swimming pool) and a movie theater. I'd like to see a whole foods, but I think there are plans already for another grocery store which hasn't been named yet.

Since the city is involved with the downtown redevelopment, part of the municipal Web site is devoted to the project. In particular, I keep track of two or three pages....

“Weekly” updates (actually range erratically from weekly to bimonthly): http://sunnyvale.ca.gov/Departments/Community...

Maybe Sunnyvale should offer more incentives for businesses to move in. There's so much empty office space available for lease right now here that I can't imagine that there will be much interest in moving into the new pricier space.

The best way to make this project succeed is to start offering incentives now for businesses that want to move to Sunnyvale.

I agree, this redevelopment is a big joke. It will soon become a labor camp for old white people.

"Replace this mess with a nice park!"
Agreed. This new mall is a trainwreck in the making. Just call it a loss and let the city build a park/cultural center similar to the one in Mountain View. Far better use than shopping space.

So, other than rainproofing and the new Target, is there any hope?

Or will this be like the many cases in places like Detroit, where there is no real market interest and it ends up a ruin?
