Once building permits are obtained, developer Brian Hirahara of BH Development plans to break ground on “Cadillac Corner”, an elegant center of retail and restaurants in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek.
Located at the current La Fogata parking lot, Cadillac corner will be a two-story space including retail space, a café, first-floor restaurant and second-floor roof top dining.
It will be adorned with a two-story living green wall and a living green roof.
Construction will hopefully be completed in early 2015.
City officials feel that this corner will be the final piece in the city’s core downtown and Broadway Plaza area.My main question regarding this development being, how did this area come to be named Cadillac Corner? Sources cite it is because of the areas proximity to Tiffany and Neiman Marcus, however, I have never heard this corner referenced as such and am curious if it was just nick-named by city officials. I wonder if the name will catch on? I say no, what do you think?
The City of Walnut Creek is considering an ordinance to prohibit the distribution of single-use carryout bags in all retailers (except restaurants and non-profit charitable thrift stores). Under the ordinance, all grocery and retail stores in Walnut Creek would no longer provide single-use carryout plastic bags. Stores may sell paper bags for a minimum of 10 cents for each bag. Protective plastic or paper bags, without handles, for items such as meat, fresh produce, dry-cleaned clothes and prescription medications will be allowed. Consumers will have the option to bring their own reusable bags or pay for recycled paper bags. In the on-line town hall survey, you can state how you feel about the non-profits and restaurants being exempt, about the the price of a paper bag and when should it go into affect.
The City of Walnut Creek aims to see a significant reduction in litter in our neighborhoods and streets, improve water quality of our creeks and bay, and conserve valuable resources by passing this ordinance. Europe has been doing this for years. Hawaii recently has banned plastic bags as they accumulate in the ocean at specific areas around the islands and sea life gets entangled. For me, it is just remembering to grab my re-usable bags from the trunk. I love having them when I go to Costco and wonder why I haven’t thought about bringing them into the store sooner.
