    I don't think it is definite. They are interested in the space, but I don't think they signed anything yet.
  2. PROPOSED: AI Tech Center

    You mean vacancy rate. That rate by the way does include tenants looking to sublet, the real number is about 22 percent of the market's space is available for lease. The reality is that AI is taking 1 1/2 floors which means 90% of the building is available for lease. I am guessing AI needs to get commitment for at least 60% occupancy plus their 10% in order to get funding.

    The Stilts Building was a class A building until you know who bought it and ran it to the ground. Mercifully, someone bought it and turned it around. With Hartford anything is possible. I have been unfortunately conditioned to expected the worst.

    I am thinking only bottom fishers will be at the auction, I just hope the new owner will not be someone like the so called developer who owned the butt ugly and the Capitol West building or that new age guru dude who runs a nice hotel in Constitution Plaza.

    A pizza place is coming to the old Dunkin' Donuts place in Resident Inn on Main Street

    I guess it's official now, the sushi place on Pratt Street is not happening. Too many nonsenses from the city, plus landlord and tenant are not seeing things eye to eye.

    Is there any truth to the rumor that McDonald's closed because Northland wanted to jack up its rent?
  8. Hartford Restaurant/Retail

    I am not as optimistic as you guys are. To me, Northland has failed as a real estate developer when it comes to marketing their retail spaces. We all know Hartford needs unique retail shops to attract weekend visitors from suburbs and essential retail shops for downtown residents. If the rumor is true, adding 2 more bank branches do nothing other than filling vacant spots. By the way, did Northland ditch its silly must open on weekend requirement for these banks? As far as running their own grocery store, let's hope they are better grocer than hotelier. If they are to run their own grocery store it is a realization on their part that even with no up front build out investment, no one else would do it.

    Rumor has it Northland is about to sign two tenants, one at the corner of trumbull and asylum, the glass corner of H21, and one on trumbull side of xl center. The bad news is these are not retail shops, they are banks. Also, rumor has it Northland is now thinking of doing the grocery store themselves.

  12. Hartford Restaurant/Retail

    Yeah, Most restaurants were busy on Wednesday, most, like us did not get much sleep the night before. Max Bibo had their people in by 5:30. We being slackers took our time to opened at 6:30.

    Looks like the Japanese noodle shop, Tanuki, is gone.
  14. Hartford Restaurant/Retail

    Don't bet on it. They still don't have all the approval.

    And on those many nights society room is not open joe black easily bring more people to downtown. This society room vs. joe black comparison is really futile. For one thing without joe black spending massive amount of money to renovate the place society room would have never look at the space or consider hartford for that matter. joe black's extreme misfortune is what makes society room today. while society room is bring them in on certain nights, we still have to thank joe black for making it possible for society room.
