SUNNYVALE, CA – SEPTEMBER 26, 2019 – CityLine Sunnyvale has signed five new leases with retail tenants in the heart of downtown Sunnyvale, bringing restaurants, salons, and technology retail to the master-planned, pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use district. Pacific Catch, Urban Plates, AT&T, Namaste Nail Salon, and Salon Republic are all expected to open in new, ground-level retail spaces in 2020. When complete, CityLine Sunnyvale will feature new residences, shopping, entertainment options, and office space planned across 36 acres in downtown Sunnyvale. All retail locations are within short walking distance to Caltrain.

“As downtown Sunnyvale continues to expand and grow, we couldn’t be happier to welcome such a great, diverse selection of businesses to the neighborhood as they join the more than 150 active businesses we have here,” says Sunnyvale Mayor Larry Klein. “We’re grateful to the efforts of CityLine Sunnyvale as our downtown continues to flourish.”

Pacific Catch, Urban Plates, AT&T and Namaste Nail Salon will occupy ground-level retail space beneath The Flats, a fully occupied, 198-apartment luxury community located in three buildings along Washington and McKinley Avenues. Just around the corner, Salon Republic will be located in a 19,000-square-foot ground-level retail space beneath Target on W. McKinley Avenue.

“We’re excited to bring these businesses to downtown Sunnyvale for the benefit of all who will live and work here in the coming years,” says Deke Hunter, Managing Member of Hunter Storm. “Offering healthful meals, beauty care, and technology, these storefronts will add to the vibrancy of the neighborhood and bring it another step closer to becoming a well-rounded district with ample residential, retail, and office space.” 

With Phase I of CityLine Sunnyvale nearing completion, progress is being made on Phase II, which will expand the scope and scale of the downtown development. The City of Sunnyvale is two years into revising Phase II’s Specific Plan and studying its environmental impacts, and is slated to release draft documents to the public in the coming weeks. Once approved, Phase II will bring additional retail, office, and residences to downtown Sunnyvale.

Nearby, a new Whole Foods Market and an AMC Theaters will be open by early 2020. With nearby public transit options, the area is an ideal location for those commuting to work from across the Bay Area. 

Cityline Sunnyvale has also partnered with the City of Sunnyvale and Google to bring a public outdoor skating rink to Downtown Sunnyvale this holiday season. The all-ages rink is scheduled to be open from mid-morning through the evening from November 22nd through Martin Luther King Day on January 20th.
