Massive Gym Planning to Open in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek

Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

In August we learned some scuttlebutt about Minnesota-based Life Time Fitness opening a huge new gym in the empty plot across from Macy’s in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek and according to a recently posted Design Review agenda it looks like this is going to happen! Plans are for a massive ~75,000 sf, 50 foot building. There is no mention of Life Time Fitness in the agenda but we now know a HUGE gym is planned for this spot.


Amazon Books Opening Soon in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek

Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

The brick facade is now up at the soon-to-be-opening Amazon Books shop in Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek. They are still looking for seasonal associates here, which will also feature a cafe. I can’t wait to check this place out, although considering their recent purchase of Whole Foods, I do wonder about the increasing power they have in the marketplace and how it will affect long-term prices.

Thanks to a reader for pointing out this Napa Valley Register article stating that the Napa-based fast casual restaurant Heritage Eats is coming to Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek. Check out their menu here and find about the Heritage Eats story here. This looks to be opening next to Boudin Bakery. Stay tuned…

Considering how crowded True Food Kitchen is all the time I’m not surprised another restaurant is opening here.

From their website:

Safety Issue in Downtown Walnut Creek

From an email:

I feel like a total weenie complaining about this, but tonight in downtown walnut creek my best friend and I were almost followed to our car by some creep that had been lingering around us near the little seating area near True Food Kitchen.

I noticed him skate toward us coming from the Broadway Plaza, and he saw us and was lingering near the SoulCycle doors, then came and sat next to us and oddly pulled his chair closer to us, then [my friend] said we should go, not even realizing he was creeping but just that he was staring at her – as soon as we got up, he got up too and followed us near the entrance and I slowed down before we got too far into the garage and quietly said “Is he following us” and [my friend] said yes, so we stopped walking and he immediately stopped too and realized that we noticed what he was trying to do, so he pretended like he was going to use the vending machine.
