The State of Jack London Square

New, 3 comments

2009_12_jlsrendered.jpgThe Chron's Robert Seina takes a business-oriented look at the recent doings at Jack London Square, highlighting the rebirth's uncertain nature. Receipts at Miss Pearl's Jam House have been "hammered" during the recession, and now that San Francisco rents have come down, those Oakland discounts aren't so special anymore. On the bright side, developers think foot traffic will pick once things get in full swing (both economy-wise and with more restaurant openings), and Rick Hackett makes some encouraging/lofty claims that he's doing "about 350 diners on weekend nights" at Bocanova.
