      Why the name MOMENT?

      We at San José Made really found the name MOMENT to perfectly suit our vision for the ethos and ambition of these four retail spaces, as "MOMENT" in one simple incisive utterance connotes and encapsulates so many different things we're trying to achieve here.

      For the amazing creative tenants who'll reside in MOMENT, we believe MOMENT could represent one of the biggest landmarks of growth in your business and brand's story. This is what you have been working on for so long, and now here's this ample and wildly visible space to express not only your work, not only your brand but the best and boldest version of yourself.

      For San José Made, we love how "MOMENT" represents our unwavering belief in ephemeral retail activations, where speed, urgency and immediacy coalesce with creativity and commerce to produce a destination demanding to be experienced.

      For the city and people for whom we do all this, "MOMENT" conveys this vast and pervasive feeling that we, as a city and as a people, are facing significant questions, challenges, and most importantly opportunities—all moments if you will—that'll end up defining the city's narrative over the next several decades. This is San José's all-important moment where we must meaningfully, collectively and creatively answer the question: "What is San José?"
