The revitalization of downtown Sunnyvale includes an entertainment block diagonally across from the town plaza, the social heart of the city.
This new epicenter of the city features a specialty market and luxury multiscreen theater. The primary design goal for this building was to activate the corner and draw people in from the town plaza adjacent to the site.
This was strategically done by moving the entrance of the lobby closer to the corner and adding a dramatic two-story glass entrance. The expansive view energizes visitors as they overlook outdoor seating and bustling activity in the square.
The architectural character is warm with clean lines. It also includes wood and green elements to contrast with the glass and hard materials.
- Specialty Market: 52,700 SF
- High-end Multiscreen Theater: 1,950 seats
- Parking structure: 960 stalls
