Bright Lights, New City


Published:

Those who cling to a Mayberry view of Walnut Creek might not like the word "urban" applied to their downtown.  But the Andy Griffith Show's fictional small town never had SOMA-like lofts, a proposed transit village, or a Neiman Marcus on the way.

89

 Percentage of the city's nearly 1,400 housing units under construction or review that will be located in multifamily complexes in or near downtown.

1,000

Estimated number of people who would move into the nearly 600 new apartments proposed for a transit village at Walnut Creek's Bart station.

$1.7

 Top price in millions for a three-bedroom condo in the Mercer complex on California Boulevard, which, like the St. Regis and Ritz-Carlton "residences" in San Francisco, offers concierge services.

2011

Year Neiman Marcus would open if the high-end chain receives city approval to add up to 100,000 square feet of retail space to Broadway Plaza's existing 700,000.
