Alameda strip with Starbucks, post office gets a faceliftThe long building on Alameda de las Pulgas at Avy Avenue in West Menlo Park that houses a Starbucks, a U.S. post office, and, until recently, a Round Table Pizza, among other shops, is getting a facelift.
"We're giving the whole structure a new look," said Dan Beltramo, whose family owns the strip.
The Beltramos are making the unit formerly occupied by Round Table taller for aesthetic reasons, to "highlight that end of the building," Mr. Beltramo said.
The Beltramos are putting a stucco finish on the building, adding handicapped restrooms, ramps and parking spaces, repaving the parking lot, and fixing up the landscape.
"We hope the building's going to be very attractive," he said, adding that the family is still seeking a tenant for the Round Table space.
