I think the City is in negotiations with a vendor or two about taking over the depot.
It's been idle how many years now and we still have only rumors?
Regarding the empty train station erected at great public expense, what conditions did the City of Mountain View add to make a lease so difficult. A small combo snack shack/bike shop/coffee shop or newspaper stand would all make sense here. As a former Mt. View resident, I fail to understand why such valuable real estate stands empty?
What's the catch? I don't get it.

Can someone refresh my memory, what was there before they built the depot? I love the look of the building, and I'm sorry that the city hasn't been able to put it to good use.
I dont think there was anything there prior.
I dont see too many vendors jumping to open shop at such a low-volume station.
City manager Kevin Duggan just told me that the city is negotiating with a tenant right now. Several months ago the voice ran a brief story about it.
See page five:
thanks for the info
Does this mean that the Japanese couple who run their little stand will have to leave? I'd rather see them in the Depot rather than having them leave.
OK, it's almost October now and still nothing. What do you "coming soon" people say now?
OK GSB and DeBolt, it's been 7 months now and still nothing's happened. What do you have to say for yourselves and this outrage?!
What about selling legalized marijuana out of the old, new train station? How much time did the council burn up last year talking about that? It could also double as the city's new teen center. Maybe the city could rent it to Google. But what ever happens, don't put any public rest rooms there. That's the last thing a train station needs. Better off relieving yourself in public.
