San Leandro by Design: Creating a Vibrant Downtown Core / July 28th at Main Library
San Leandro by Design is back! The San Leandro Chamber of Commerce is kicking off a 3-part series beginning this Thursday, June 28th at the Main Library to celebrate, explore and engage in the transformation that is taking place in the City’s Downtown. The Downtown Transit Oriented Development strategic plan adopted by the City in 2007 has successfully attracted new housing and office development; the Downtown core is experiencing a surge of new restaurants; a variety of new art installations are engaging San Leandrans and our visitors in new and positive ways.
What are the strategies this City can employ to effectively connect the Downtown core with these new developments? What will it take to accelerate the City’s efforts to create a walk-able and connected Downtown? Robert Ogilvie, the Director of SPUR Oakland, will help to lead this conversation, along with Cynthia Battenberg, San Leandro Community Development Director; Gregory Tung, Freedman Tung + Sasaki; Gaye Quinn, Westlake Urban Managing Director; Garrick Brown, Cushman & Wakefield, VP Research; and Ken Lowney, CEO Lowney Architecture (architect for the new mixed use development at E. 14th and Callan, former CVS site).
