Retail revitalization for DTO?

June 10, 2011

Oaklandish’s recent announcement of a store on Broadway near 14th St is just the latest in a string of new retail establishments downtown. Concentrated in Uptown and Old Oakland, new shops and restaurants may presage a new wave of downtown retail, despite the impending closure of the Dress Barn. Here are retail businesses that have opened in the last six months.

If I’ve missed anything please let me know!

Do these new establishments represent a trend of new retail downtown? Will the new businesses spread beyond Uptown and Old Oakland? What else is in the pipeline for downtown?
