AMC DINE-IN Sunnyvale 12 is Scheduled to Reopen This Friday

SUNNYVALE, CA – MARCH 4, 2021 – CityLine Sunnyvale continues to fill retail space in  the heart of downtown Sunnyvale, having recently executed a lease with City National Bank for an approximately 3,250-square-foot space at 301 W. McKinley Avenue that will open before the end of 2021. CityLine Sunnyvale’s retail offerings have recently expanded with the late-January opening of Salon Republic in a 19,000-square-foot ground-level retail space beneath Target on W. McKinley Avenue and the October 2020 opening of a 52,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market on the corner of Murphy and McKinley Avenues.

The 52,000-square-foot AMC DINE-IN Sunnyvale 12 that shares a building with Whole Foods Market is also scheduled to reopen to the public this Friday, March 5th at a reduced occupancy level after a brief opening last October.

“We’re very excited to bring a tenant of City National Bank’s caliber into Phase One of CityLine Sunnyvale,” says Deke Hunter, Managing Member of Hunter Storm. “Our lease with this tenant, executed during a global pandemic, is a testament to the attraction of Downtown Sunnyvale and its promising future, as City National Bank just completed the opening of a flagship location in Manhattan’s Hudson Yards. Our teams are moving quickly through the design and permitting process so that we can begin construction soon, with the goal of having them open and operating this year.”

City National Bank was represented by Mike Costa of Cushman Wakefield and Mark McGranahan of Avison Young. James Chung, Nicole Lyon, and Marisa Organo of Cushman & Wakefield represented CityLine Sunnyvale in the deal.
