For many families, moving to a new home also means moving into a new community. At Prosper Real Estate, we love to introduce our new families to the amazing communities we serve. For families moving to Contra Costa, it is our pleasure to introduce the quaint downtown district in Brentwood. Learn more about what makes Brentwood such a special place to live.
A Quaint Downtown In An Agricultural Oasis
The Historic Downtown Brentwood Corridor was not always known as such. For many years, it was an overlooked, neglected corner of the community. As more people moved to town, so did major retailers. Local diners and mom and pop shops struggled to stay open and the beautiful downtown district was nothing more than empty, forgotten buildings.
Today, thanks to the undertakings of an organization now knowns as The Downtown Brentwood Coalition, founders Becky Bloomfield, Daphne Swisher, and Donna Ross, what was once a neglected jumble of buildings grew into a welcoming downtown community plush with boutiques, delicious restaurants, music-filled bars and community members enjoying the growing number of downtown amenities late in the evenings. Today, downtown Brentwood is fun, clean, and always bubbling with exciting things to do.
Redevelopment and Renovation in Downtown Brentwood
As the Downtown Brentwood Coalition slowly began to grow the economic footprint of the downtown community, the City of Brentwood began to partner with the business owners to truly begin to build a new downtown footprint. With the advent of grant programs, close-knit partnerships, and unwavering commitment to the Brentwood community, the downtown community has experienced a wonderful facelift.
Today, as you wander through the streets and visit local stores, eateries and sip local wines, you will see renovated buildings, recently installed shade overhangs, wide sidewalks, and murals highlighting the beautiful streets. Even better, as you traverse through the streets, you will most definitely fall into fabulous conversations with your neighbors.
Downtown Brentwood Is Filled With Friendly Faces
There is simply no doubt that Brentwood is a growing community that has managed to maintain its small-town feel with deep roots in agriculture and Delta living. As you enjoy the downtown Brentwood corridor, you will be sure to cross paths with friendly faces who love to enjoy the amenities of Brentwood.
Some of the local hot spots can you will surely cross paths with friends and friendly faces include:
- Cap’s Oak Street Bar and Grill
- Sip & Scoop
- Chelsea Fusion
- Zephyr Bar and Grill
- Crown and Crow
- CoCo County Wine Bar
- Brentwood Craft Beer and Cider
- Harry’s Wine Depot
Or perhaps it is during Saturday morning visits to the Farmer’s Market, an afternoon at a local community event, such as Oktoberfest, or during a Concert in the Park. When you are in Downtown Brentwood, there is an event, a friendly face, and a space for everyone.
