retail in Menlo Park

InMenlo reader Amy Bayersdorfer snapped this photo, which she sent to us asking: “Any idea what’s finally happening at this storefront on El Camino? It’s been empty almost 15 year.  And now there’s activity!”

We asked City Council member Ray Mueller if he knew. After a bit of investigating, he replied: “The City doesn’t know what is going to go into the location, but there has been turnover with the property management company in charge of the strip, and positive signals towards renovating the site.”
