Broadway Reopens, "Theatre Way” is Next, Century Theatres and More Opening Soon!
Redwood City, CA - July 10 , 2006 - Residents, businesses, and visitors to Downtown Redwood City were thrilled last Friday to see Broadway between Jefferson Avenue and Hamilton Street reopened to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. This section has been closed since last October for major improvements to the streetscape – wonderful enhancements which complement the nearly-completed retail-cinema complex and the Courthouse Square project now underway.
There is still work to be done, but the community can already enjoy artistic new sidewalk and street pavers, new high-quality planter boxes, new street trees, and the many beautiful design details of the streetscape and the retail-cinema complex building itself. A front-view of the construction on the City’s new Courthouse Square can also now be seen, as the two side pavilions take shape. It’s an exciting time for Downtown Redwood City, as these projects all come together.
“Theatre Way” (Middlefield) is the next big opening – a great deal of streetscape and construction work has been going on and later this month motorists and pedestrians will finally be able to get a close-up look at the “new” section of Middlefield between Middlefield/Winslow and Broadway.
Century Theatres has indicated that the new 20-screen movie theater complex is expected to open to the public on July 21st – a major milestone in the renaissance of Downtown Redwood City. And, look for many of the stores and restaurants to open periodically over the next few weeks as well. All scheduling is subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances.
The City would like to thank motorists, pedestrians, and especially the Downtown businesses in the affected area for their patience and understanding during this lengthy construction period. With the re-opening of Broadway, and the imminent opening of “Theatre Way” and the Century Theatres, and the upcoming opening of the variety of retailers and restaurants, it’s going to be an exciting and hot summer indeed in Downtown Redwood City.
