Ulta Beauty, Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics, and Xfinity Will Occupy Downtown Retail Space

SUNNYVALE, CA – MARCH 12, 2020 – CityLine Sunnyvale has signed three new leases with retail tenants in the heart of downtown Sunnyvale, bringing Ulta Beauty, Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics, and Xfinity to the master-planned, pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use district. The dental, technology, and beauty storefronts are expected to open in late 2020. When complete, CityLine Sunnyvale will feature new residences, shopping, entertainment options, and office space planned across 36 acres in downtown Sunnyvale. All three retail locations are within short walking distance to Caltrain.

At the corner of W. McKinley and Murphy Avenues, Ulta Beauty will be located in an approximately 10,400-square-foot, ground-level space in a building also occupied by Target and Salon Republic. This prime location is directly adjacent to the new AMC Theaters and Whole Foods Market which are slated to open in Spring and Summer 2020, respectively.

Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics will occupy a 3,300-square-foot storefront at 300 W. Washington Avenue on the ground level of The Flats, a fully occupied, 198-apartment luxury community. A previously announced Namaste Nail Sanctuary will also operate out of the building.  

Xfinity will occupy approximately 5,400 square feet of ground-level retail space at 301 W. McKinley Avenue beneath another building of The Flats. A previously announced AT&T retail store will operate out of the same building.

“The signing of these three businesses is another important step in the development of CityLine Sunnyvale and shows that we’re well on our way to activating this new extension of downtown,” says Deke Hunter, Managing Member of Hunter Storm. “We’re working to expand and grow this district into a well-rounded, vibrant area with new retail, housing, and office space, and it’s exciting to see the neighborhood begin to take shape and become a reality.”

Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics was represented by James Chung of Cushman & Wakefield, Ulta Beauty was represented by Sean O’Carroll and Cece Vohs Cimino of Newmark Knight Frank, and Xfinity was represented by Matthew Lux of Beta Agency. James Chung, Nicole Lyon, and Marisa Organo of Cushman & Wakefield represented CityLine Sunnyvale in the deals.

With Phase I of CityLine Sunnyvale nearing completion, progress is being made on entitling Phase II, which will expand the scope and scale of the downtown development. Once approved, Phase II will bring additional retail, office, and residences to downtown Sunnyvale.

With nearby public transit options, the area is an ideal location for those commuting to work from across the Bay Area.
