Broadway Plaza Is Having Some Work Done!

February 21, 2014
Walnut Creek, Calif. – February 21, 2014 - Beginning March 3, shoppers at Broadway Plaza will see transformations taking place, from expanded parking and enhanced pedestrian spaces to better traffic access.  With the support of the Walnut Creek City Council and Planning Commission, and input from Walnut Creek residents, the 62-year-old shopping center will embark on several upgrade projects, with new retail and center enhancements opening in phases beginning in Fall 2015. 
 
“With traffic always a high concern for Walnut Creek residents, improving access and parking is top of the list in terms of priority,” said Shelly Dress, Senior Property Manager.  “And enhanced pedestrian areas will also contribute to something in high-demand:  maintaining the charm and appeal of Broadway Plaza.”
 
The master plan of the project includes demolishing and rebuilding the parking garages on South Broadway, the expansion of the Macy's for Women store, the remodel of the buildings on the East side of the property between Macy’s and Nordstrom, and improvements to traffic flow and pedestrian areas.
 
Beginning Wednesday, February 26, the Nordstrom parking garage will be closed.  During this time and throughout construction, Broadway Plaza will offer Complimentary Valet Parking seven days a week.  Customers can access this complimentary service at the valet podium located on Broadway Plaza Street near the promenade fountain.  In addition, during construction, guests will be able to park on the Macy’s side of the parking garage along Broadway and Newell, as well as in Broadway Plaza’s Main Street parking garage, (levels 2-4). 
 
The convenience and experience of guests is a high priority during these upgrades.  Stores will remain open, plenty of parking will be available, Broadway Plaza Street will remain open, and Roving Ambassadors will be available throughout the property to ensure shoppers receive the service they have become accustomed to and deserve.  Many stores, including See’s Candies, True Religion Brand Jeans and White House Black Market have relocated to the West side of the Plaza, with Banana Republic, Edwards Everything Travel, Gymboree and Janie & Jack to follow in the upcoming weeks.
