This article needs a map showing where stores will be.
I see a huge parking problem, especially during long busy weekends and the holidays. With the current construction I believe they are probably down about 1000 spots. Build another 2 story garage. Would be great to bring back Palo Alto Creamery and some other places to sit down and eat kid friendly.
One of my favorite things about the Stanford Shopping Center is that it's outdoors and the walkways have stunning foliage including trees, vines and incredible flower variety and compositions. I used to take my kids here when they were younger just to appreciate the beautiful flowers and fountains (and of course we ended up purchasing food and clothes as a result).
I really hope they don't replace these beautiful parts of the Center. Dumbing down the landscaping with "a simplified at grade scheme" using "themes" sounds horrible. It sounds like Disneyland.
Regarding the parking, it's already a huge pain on weekends and around holidays to find a parking spot. Really, they're going to increase stores, creat office space and decrease parking? Sounds like a good plan to annoy shoppers and decrease business.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
