City Line Ribbon Cutting A ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening took place last week, with the mayor in attendance.

SUNNYVALE, CA—The extension of Murphy Avenue connecting the heritage downtown district to McKinley Avenue is now a reality, representing a major step in the multi-phase CityLine Sunnyvale downtown redevelopment project. The extension promises to play a large part in enlivening downtown as a pedestrian-oriented mixed-use district featuring new residences, shopping, entertainment options and office space planned across 36 acres. STC Venture LLC, a joint venture between Sares Regis Group of Northern California and Hunter Properties, completed the project.

The street extension will connect the historic Murphy Avenue block to a new two-story building currently under construction at the corner of Murphy and McKinley Avenues, housing a Whole Foods Market and an AMC Theaters. Scheduled to open in 2019, the 52,000-square-foot theater and 52,000-square-foot grocery store will anchor the downtown district, attracting additional retail and restaurant tenants to the area.
