Lila Gemellos’ Murals Add a Splash of Color and History at Market Park San Jose
Even the most attractive, modern shopping centers often have many large empty surfaces —building and boundary walls that safely direct traffic in and out of the center. These contribute to a degree of coldness associated with most retail complexes.
Not at Market Park. San Jose’s newest retail center — located in the Berryessa Road neighborhood in North San Jose — is painting a picture of what retail centers can aspire to…with a little extra creativity and imagination.
Variety of Categories Available, but Remaining Space Is Going Fast at Market Park San Jose
As more and more retailers jump at the chance to locate in the Market Park retail center on Berryessa Road in North San Jose, space is filling up quickly. But a number of enticing categories remain for the retailer, restaurant or service business that wants to be part of the high-traffic Safeway-anchored center.
But while there are plenty of categories available for interested tenants, only about 9% — approximately 9,200 sq. ft. of the total of 101,000 sq. ft. — remain. And negotiations are underway on 3 of the 7 available units. So retailers and their representatives would be advised to move fast!
Firehouse Subs Blazing a Path to Market Park San Jose
Firehouse Subs is sweeping the nation, with more than 1,100 locations now serving the hot, fast-casual chain’s unique, second-to-none submarine sandwiches. Now, the latest location is set to open in approximately 1,500 sq. ft. of space at 1411 Berryessa Road in the new Market Park San Jose retail center, just steps from the Berryessa BART station.
Guests will be able to dine in, move to the building’s shared open-air patio, or take food to go and enjoy a wide selection of delicious submarine sandwiches made with premium meats and cheeses. This includes a variety of hot specialty subs, build-your-own-sub options and local specials — as well as Firehouse pairs, side dishes such as appetizing salads, chips, beverages, and more. Plus, all Firehouse Subs are available cold, if desired.

Parking limits, new freeway interchange eyed for Market Park project in North San Jose
New documents filed with the city reveal more details about the massive project that is intended to replace the current home of the San Jose Flea Market.
Earlier this week, the Business Journal took a look at two big things about the next phase of Market Park in North San Jose, the city’s largest under-construction development.

North SJ’s Market Park could have thousands of homes, millions of square feet of commercial space in its next phase.
The Market Park team is looking to rezone the 61.5-acre site of the existing San Jose Flea Market to allow for more development. Here’s what they have in mind.
On more than 58 acres of land north of Berryessa Road, known as Market
Park’s “North Village,” Borelli Investment Co., Western National Group and
KB Home have completed or are constructing 1,000 townhomes, singlefamily
homes and apartment units as well as 118,580 square feet of

shopping center, 233 apartment units and two public parks are all slated for
completion by the first quarter of 2021.

Market Park San Jose Capitalizes on Clear Trend Away from the Automobile
Wall Street Journal Article Sees America Putting the Brakes on its Driving Love Affair
Data doesn’t lie. Americans are driving less, and especially in densely populated, traffic-choked urban areas such as Silicon Valley, we’re enjoying it less as well.
According to a December 24th article in The Wall Street Journal, “America’s Love Affair With Driving Takes a Back Seat,” drivers aged 16 – 34 in 2017 drove nearly 25% fewer miles in 2017 compared with drivers of the same ages in 2001. There were also fewer commute trips than in any year since 1990, and the number of trips for shopping, socializing and enjoying recreational activities declined as well.
