New Broadway Plaza South Broadway Parking Garage Opens in Walnut Creek

Broadway Plaza South Broadway Parking Garage, Walnut Creek

The new Broadway Plaza South Broadway Parking Garage opened over the weekend in downtown Walnut Creek. Considering how hard it is to find parking downtown this opened just in time. This garage has four levels, three above-ground and one below for a total of 2,500 spots. Unfortunately the Macy’s parking garage next to this garage will be closing in January according to this Contra Costa Times article.

Lately I’m finding it extremely difficult to find free parking downtown so I’ve been venturing further away where there is free street parking available within a five minute walk downtown. I hope nobody finds out about this area. :)

True Food Kitchen Coming to Broadway Plaza in 2016

Diablo Dish reports that True Food Kitchen is opening a giant 6,000 square foot restaurant next to Macy’s in May, 2016 in Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek. The True Food Kitchen concept is based on Dr. Andrew Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet (see the food pyramid). I’ve followed Dr. Weil’s advice many times so this looks very promising! Check out their San Diego lunch menu here and dinner menu here.

From their website:

You don’t have to be a die-hard Yogi to dine at True Food Kitchen. You need only a desire to give your body nutrients, and your palate something memorable. The basis for the anti-inflammatory diet isn’t meant to deprive a healthy body of great flavors, it’s meant to take popular trends in cuisine and pair them with healthy living.

With a wide, healthy selection of vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free options we offer something for everyone. Try the kale and quinoa, you’ll live longer. Drink the seabuckthorn and acai, you’ll feel better. At True Food Kitchen, we want you to feel better, live longer, and make your mouth happy in the process. It’s honest food that tastes really good.

Last month we learned that the women’s sports clothing store Athleta would be opening next to Starbucks and the Tesla showroom in Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek and the signage is up now and they will be opening on October 21st. Athleta is owned by GAP.

Considering that the previous store Bracciale closed only a couple of weeks ago I think this is the fastest I’ve ever seen a new store open up!

Progress on Macy’s in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek

Macy’s in downtown Walnut Creek in Broadway Plaza has been covered in black fabric for a while now and details on how it will look when it’s finished are being reviewed by the Walnut Creek Design Review commission. As you can see in the above rendering the red look is out, replaced with a lighter motif centered with a large glass opening. Natural light is great so I’m glad this is happening. There will also be a 57,000 square foot addition which you can see in the photo at bottom.

It’s tough being a small retailer in Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek. Take the fashion accessories boutique Bracchiale for example. They have moved two times within the past year in Broadway Plaza and according to an Eventbrite party, GAP owned Athleta will be opening next to Starbucks in Broadway Plaza on October 20th, which means that Bracchiale will need to look once again for a new location either in downtown Walnut Creek or elsewhere in the bay area.
