Downtown News

  • Downtown Business Spotlight – Baxter Moerman Jewelry

    “I don’t think you can be anywhere else in San Luis and have the walk-by traffic and vibrant community that Downtown fosters” says Matt Moerman, co-owner of Baxter Moerman Jewelry, which just relocated to a bigger showroom and studio on Garden Street. His business partner Matt Baxter agrees: their new location is “literally right in the center of Downtown.” The new showroom measures 1,150 square feet, over three times the size of the now-closed Morro Street location, and is gorgeously designed by the owners themselves.

  • Downtown Business Spotlight – Landwell Design + Build Co.

    Though relatively new on the landscape design scene, Landwell Design + Build Co. has already garnered the interest of HGTV and Houzz, having been nominated for an HGTV Ultimate Outdoor Award in Outdoor Architecture and named “Best of Houzz” this year on the eponymous website. The firm is a landscape design and construction company owned by Jon Svehla; Joslyn Amato serves as Project Manager. Both are Cal Poly graduates with degrees in Landscape Architecture and Environmental Horticulture, respectively. Jon decided to found Landwell Design + Build Co. in late summer 2016 to create a more tailored, one-on-one experience for clients. Read more here.


  • Downtown Perspective

    Welcome to May Downtowners! Spring has sprung and folks around the city are getting out their cleaning supplies and gardening tools to spruce up their homes and businesses. Our association would be remiss if we didn’t join in on the annual tradition of Spring cleaning as well. For some, it is literally just a matter of deep cleaning in and around the house, but for others it means an all out update of their living or work spaces. We are going with the latter at 1108 Garden Street, and I am excited to announce that our organization has adopted a new name and corresponding brand. Read more here.
