Oakland: Rockridge Safeway on College Now Completed

When we last took photos of the redeveloped Safeway in Rockridge things looked almost ready to go but fencing was still up and the store was not open yet. Now, 3 months later, the development has been completed and is open to the public. Though not all new retail spaces are occupied yet, one of the spots now houses a Philz Coffee which should be a popular addition to the neighborhood. While this was certainly a controversial project when first proposed, I believe the finished products looks great and has made this stretch of College Ave even more pleasant and attractive than it was before.
