Coronavirus economy: Santana Row in San Jose reopens some shops, restaurants

SAN JOSE — Santana Row in San Jose has opened some shops for
in-store retailing and some restaurants for outdoor dining, the
destination retail center said Friday in a welcome counterpoint to
coronavirus-linked business shutdowns.

Seven retailers are now open for in-store shopping and services
at Santana Row, according to Federal Realty Investment Trust, the
principal owner of the mixed-use commercial complex.

In addition, six restaurants are now open for outdoor dining,
Federal Realty said.

“We are excited to welcome you back to Santana Row,” the
shopping center stated in a post on its web site.

Retailers that are open at Santana Row: Boutique Harajuku,
Franco Uomo, Free People, Laser Away, Penelope Boutique, Sleep, and
Tranquility Dental are the retailers that have opened for in-store
services and shopping. Franco Uomo was open by appointment
only.

Restaurants open for outdoor dining at Santana Row: Amber India,
Maggiano’s Little Italy, Ozumo, Pizza Antica, Rosie McCann’s
Irish Pub & Restaurant, and Zazil Mexicana Cocina.

An array of orders imposed by state and local government
agencies have hobbled business operations or forced them to shut
their doors altogether under mandates that began to roll out in
mid-March.

On Friday, Santa Clara County officials began to allow outdoor
dining and indoor shopping, along with other activities.

Federal Realty also conducted a re-launch of a different part of
the Santana Row commercial hub, when it resumed construction of a
big office building across the street from the main center.

One Santana West, a modern office building expected to attract a
tech company as its tenant, resumed construction in May on
Winchester Boulevard near Olsen Drive.

The new office building totals 375,000 square feet and is the
vanguard of what is to be a vast tech campus.

“Shops and restaurant hours may vary during the re-opening
phase,” Santana Row stated. “Additionally, contactless
curb-side pick-up options will continue to be available at Santana
Row.”
