Broadway Plaza is redefining 230,000 square feet of retail space, adding opportunity for retailers to bring their best concepts to this lively downtown property, anchored by Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Macy’s.
Enhanced pedestrian spaces, expanded parking, and better traffic access enhance the charm – and customer convenience – for the iconic center.
Broadway Plaza is currently making some changes to the 64-year-old shopping center that will bring the addition of new retail, expanded parking, enhanced pedestrian spaces, and better traffic access. Broadway Plaza is an important resource for the Walnut Creek community, which is why we are investing to enhance its appeal for local residents, visitors, shoppers and retailers over many years to come.
With traffic always a high concern for Walnut Creek residents, improving access and parking is top of the list in terms of priority. And enhanced pedestrian areas will also contribute to something in high-demand: maintaining the charm and appeal of Broadway Plaza.
The convenience and experience of our guests is our highest priority during these upgrades. Stores are open, including the addition of 14 new stores, and plenty of parking is available.
The Reveal of this amazing project has now begun, with the opening of new retail, added parking and a newly renovated Macy's. The celebration will continue in Summer 2016, with a Grand Opening scheduled to celebrate more new retail, the completion of the South Broadway Parking Garage, the introduction of the new Event Plaza and much more!
