After 38 years of serving the Peninsula area, The Boardwalk is finally shutting down. The family-owned restaurant was unable to reach an agreement with the new owners of their building after months of negotiations.
Vish Agarwal purchased the property and has listed RKT Group LLC as the property owners. They have made arrangements to redevelop the space and “push up and out.” According to the Los Altos Town Crier, there are plans to add 3,679 square feet and other updates to this decades-old multi-use building.
It is such a shame to see this establishment go. I started going to The Boardwalk in the late ‘70s, and actually managed it for a couple of years in the early ‘80s. It was a wonderful community gathering place. Over the years, I’ve taken my children and then my grandchildren there for family get togethers, special occasions, etc. It seems as though lately, we have been loosing the family businesses that are foundational to the fabric of our community.
This is why I love serving the Peninsula as a Realtor. With the rapid change Los Altos is undergoing, I try to contribute to the area by staying up-to-date on community news, supporting local businesses and assisting families with their housing needs.
When well-loved, long-standing businesses shut down, it can be tough and a real blow to the area. However, by getting families established in their local community, I work to ensure that the future of Los Altos is bright, strong and prosperous as it has been in the past.
