If you have gone to Metreon recently, you would feel bad for how sad the joint looks. I remember as a teenager, Sony’s Metreon was the coolest spot to watch all the movies in their impressive IMAX auditorium. There was a Sony Playstation store and a Sony Entertainment store, the coolest subscription based arcade, and a great Games Workshop store. Today, there’s just the theater, book store, Jillians and Starbucks.
In 2012, Metreon is going to reopen with quite a few really great new tenants including: La Boulange Bakery, Best of Burger, Massage Envy, So Green Yogurt, Chipotle, San Francisco Soup, Mixt Green’s, Brandy Ho’s, Sorabol Korean BBQ, and Firewood Grill. The restaurants that will continue to lease space to Jillian’s, Buckhorn Grill and Sanraku. What’s even better is the City Target that will take over the entire 85,000 square foot second floor. Yes, that’s right neighbors! We’re getting a Target in the city! Take that Walmart!
