Can't get enough of our frontage!! The view from Flora, an extremely popular restaurant across the street.
The City of Oakland is planning on widening all the sidewalks, planting more trees, and getting rid of a lane of traffic to make a more pedestrian friendly strip. It's truly exciting to be part of the rejuvenation of the area. Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe, a hip late night diner owned in part by one of the guys from Green Day, is planning on opening next to us (in the unused part of the Fox Theater) in mid-May.
They're putting the terrazzo on the pony wall, gonna look great!

After several years of residence, the "temporary" security grills come down!
Framing for the window/facade is near complete.
And by the end of the day, we have our patio!!! The plywood is a new temporary security-it will eventually be replaced by the glass facade.
A great feeling to see the size and shape of the patio-it's bound to be a boon for the neighborhood, and for us!

Our Pony Wall is built. We can get the idea of the flow of the front-the new, low wall will be plated with terrizo tiles, to match the existing terrizo trim around the rest of the building. And the planter is installed! I've already planned my succulent garden, very exciting!!
