For years developments in Redding have been pushing for a more active downtown community with more apartments and restaurants to revitalize the city. Now a new development pushed by councilmember Brent Weaver and Vicky Keller the owner of Kobe Steakhouse aims to do just that. The project will be a three-story, mixed-use downtown infill project on the corner of Placer and Pine streets on land that has been vacant for a number of years.
The structure will feature a restaurant and above will feature state of the art apartments that will combine living and nightlife something the chamber of commerce says is a perfect partnership. Council member Brent Weaver says this may be exactly what the city needs to create a more vibrant downtown environment. He says “cities don’t have that 9 to 5 type of dynamic they need to have a 24 hour 7 day a week district and I think the key to that is to get people living downtown.”
