Nikkei Center Reception at JANM

About 100 people attended the Nikkei Center reception last Tuesday night at JANM, and listened to presentations and speeches from the project's partners that reflected optimism about the direction of Little Tokyo, despite the gloomy economic downturn. The folks at blogdowntown posted a story about the event.

The project partners also announced plans to launch a website that will update the community on the progress of the development, and promote transparency to ensure continued involvement from all stakeholders--a refreshing and positive departure from some of the insulated and tight-lipped tendencies of some of the recent retail developments in Little Tokyo.
