Once a thriving community entertainment center, now just a relic. Undone by the construction of the 280 freeway, this community icon is now threatened with foreclosure and possible destruction or indefinite mothballing. The Studio Sharise tenant is trying to gain control of the building, hoping to restore or expand the retail areas and enhance the current art and dance studio. Read how you can help Save the Burbank.

I-280/I-880/STEVENS CREEK BLVD IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT
If this photo, taken on the Stevens Creek I880 overpass, looks familiar, it should – it's the central element of the BCA logo (see the header image on the top of all our webpages). This design is cast into multiple panels on the Stevens Creek overpass, providing a decorative element to the concrete barriers that are part of the bridge's sidewalks. Even the paint colors were chosen to echo those of our Burbank Community Association logo.
During the extensive public hearings in the I280/I880/Stevens Creek project, residents expressed the desire for the project to incorporate artwork recognizing the Burbank Community.
Thanks to VTA and CalTrans for making this a reality.
