    SAN JOSE — A local investor has grabbed two choice sites next to the Santana Row and Westfield Valley Fair retail hubs, a sign of ongoing interest in a San Jose real estate hot spot. The Bay Area group bought five parcels, including an office building, near the corner of Stevens Creek Boulevard and South Redwood Avenue, according to documents filed on Nov. 10 with the Santa Clara County Recorder’s Office. Kuma Ventures paid $14.5 million for the properties, the county records show. The office building is at 2960 Stevens Creek Blvd. and was the location of a Manpower building for a long time. The other parcels have addresses ranging from 333 through 357 S. Redwood Ave., according to property documents. The seller was University Avenue Partners, a real estate firm led by local developer Don Tepman. “We decided to sell it because we knew the properties would be a mixed-use development at some point and we’re not residential builders,” Tepman said. Los Altos-based Kuma Ventures, the buyer, is a group that’s led by William Siu and Rachel Ng, state...
    SAN JOSE (KPIX 5) – In the South Bay, Westfield Valley Fair mall is kicking off the first full weekend of summer with a grand reopening of its own, to highlight a $1 billion renovation. Until now, the changes have been largely unseen by the public because of the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing lockdown. “It’s such a gathering place for us and a community center for us. It’s so much more than just a shopping center. And I think that it was well worth the money,” said Santa Clara Mayor Lisa Gillmor. Among the notable additions: • Expansive outdoor eating area with water features and heated seats • Luxury section with new high-end retailers Christian Dior, and Reiss • Digital District, featuring pop-up stores • New interior architectural design and skylights “The goal was to create a space like a museum and showcase our retailers as the works of art. So clean lines, great architecture bringing the outdoors in,” said Kate Diefenterfer, the mall’s marketing director.

    CBS San Francisco Staff Report SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — With a surge in coronavirus cases, the information you need to know is coming fast and furious. Here’s a roundup of the COVID stories we’ve published over the last 24 hours. ‘There Are Bright Spots’ While San Francisco Continues To Battle Surge In Cases SAN FRANCISCO — Although San Francisco continues to see the highest number of new COVID-19 cases daily since the onset of the pandemic, health officials said Tuesday they were also seeing a dip in the rate of infection citywide.

    PLEASANTON (KPIX) — Many last minute Christmas shoppers said they headed to Bay Area malls to find gifts Tuesday evening, because at this point, it’s too late to order them online. Shoppers said they didn’t expect to see so many people out two days three days before Christmas. At Stoneridge Shopping Center in Pleasanton, shoppers waited in socially-distanced lines outside popular stores like Sephora and Foot Locker. Under the stay-at-home order, retail stores in Alameda County are allowed to operate at 20% capacity. “There have been outbreaks associated with grocery stores and even big box outlets, but it was usually in the context of crowding areas,” said UCSF Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Peter Chin-Hong. “If you limit the capacity, provided you have good ventilation, which at most malls, I think is pretty decent.” Dr. Chin-Hong says if shoppers keep their masks on, stay out of crowds, and stores follow guidelines, they should be mostly safe. Shopping is also generally safer than dining, he added. Still, people at malls do often take off their masks to eat or drink....

    Starting Monday, myriad businesses can welcome patrons across much of the Bay Area after Gov. Gavin Newsom rolled out a new system to track counties’ prevalence of COVID-19 and guide the reopening process. In lieu of the state’s coronavirus watchlist — which was criticized by local officials for its litany of requirements — the new system considers only the counties’ positivity rate and cases per 100,000 residents. Counties may move from purple (widespread transmission) to red (substantial) to orange (moderate) to yellow (minimal) only after spending a minimum of three weeks in each category.
