Park Vista Square Building No. 2

What would you like to see at building number two of Park Vista Square?

Although we’ve asked for your suggestions on buildings one and three of Park Vista Square, we haven’t asked for your suggestions on building number two, which will be setup differently. So, this week we would like to get your suggestions on what you would like to see here.

Park Vista Square is located at 1700 Park Street at the corner of Buena Vista Ave. and right next to The Marketplace.

I’ve been in close communication with the developer Bill Phua for several months and he’s very interested to know what the community wants here.  He uses your suggestions to help attract those businesses here.  

Unlike the two other buildings which are brand new, building number two is older and served as the showroom, office, and service center for the car dealership that was once here.  This building is quite large, about 20,000 sq. ft. They’re in the process of major renovations and will open it up by removing the offices.  He’s thinking to divide the space into many smaller spaces with semi open partitions.  Although he would consider many types of businesses he thinks this space would be great for casual dining restaurants, small specialty food shops and specialty retail shops.  But those are just some ideas.  We would love to hear what you would like to see here.

Interesting posting , are you implying the food is not that good in the miriad of restaurants in Alameda . it is always suject to interpretation , some love doggy style hot dog , other prefer Mc Donald , I can't count the Mexiiiiiican , Chinese and Japanese ... Should you be refering to high end restaurant the investment is around 5 millions , lease ,permits , equipment , supplies , wine , food , utilities and what everyone forget payroll , one of the main reason there is such high turn over in the industry . This aside Alameda does not have the Customer base , one of the reason 3 out of 5 spaces have no tenants at south shore . the reality between greed and business .

Office space. We need people who spend all day on Park Street and can support all the restaurants etc. In the meantime, a "phantom" art gallery that would support local arts events would be great and would draw people to the area on weekends etc.

We need a Chinese bakery, which prepares and serves steamed buns, moon cakes, sesame balls, shrimp wrap-ups, and so on.

Yes, I agree that more parking would be a good idea. For people without a retirement plan, live-in parking lots are the wave of the future. Since most companies do not offer pensions, as was the case in our parents' time and in our grandparents' time, it is my opinion that people should have the opportunity to live out their "Golden Years" by living in their automobile. Of course, this is where it helps to own a van or an SUV. At any rate, I propose a parking lot for 1,000 automobiles at the SouthShore Mall, with enfoced quiet time starting at 10:00 pm, and free running water, and free dental care, and free methylprednisolone injections for old folks with arthritis, and a token rent of $25.00 per month. Volunteer managers would organize group singing activities, low-impact exercise, lectures on timely topics, card playing and bingo sessions (preceded by lessons), and social dance with music appropriate for those antiquated baby boomers, e.g., Jefferson Airplane and Led Zeppelin.
