Reader: Lowe's leaves a big gap at Alameda Square. More dim sum!
Dim sum at Super Star Asian.
In honor of the Chinese new year, we dropped by Alameda Square twice this week, for dim sum at both King's Land Seafood Restaurant and Super Star Asian. Somehow, both restaurants managed to survive all the disruption created by the construction of a giant Lowe's store two years ago.
And then by the closing of that Lowe's store last year. But at least it left behind lots of smooth pavement, and plenty of parking.
Says Brian Martinez:
I always thought it was a stupid move to build a Lowe's there. At least the shopping center had few vacancies and a lot of traffic when it was still a bit of a dump. Now there's a gigantic retail space sitting vacant, and probably will be for years given the economy. Nice job, DURA.
What would you like to see in that former Lowe's? An Asian supermarket? A dim sum department store? Tomorrow, at least some of the empty space will be filled by a new year's dragon dance; stop by at noon to see it.
