A drive through Morgan Hill's downtown on Monterey Road is very exciting of late.

Every morning when I get to the office I see the demolition resulting construction on the corner of First Street and Monterey Road. The Granada theater has had a beautiful facelift as Frank Leal (Leal Vineyards), has not only spruced up the outside, but has fashioned a beautiful ballroom and theater venue inside.

Friends have told me that it's just as elegant as anything in the 'city' and they're so excited to have this gem in their backyard! Can't wait to tour the boutique hotel on the same corner once the rain slows down and construction ensues. A sixty room hotel on that site will revitalize the downtown shops and restaurants, and will be bring tax dollars to our city coffers. We've also heard that the Granary housing project on Depot Street and Main Avenue will bring 16 condos to the downtown core.

So much is happening and we couldn't be more proud of Morgan Hill! Check out the Chamber's February calendar, and check back with EXIT Realty Keystone for more updates and tips on open houses, mortgage rates and all things Real Estate.
