With all the talk of d'town retail have you guys keyed into the new arrivals in the gulch and the roundabout. My wife just let me know about these boutiques (If they have been mentioned before sorry)

I've heard Chritopher's Pizza Company is really good, but the only place on the list I have been to is Dan McGuiness (pub/bar/club?) though - and it does one heck of a business. :D

I haven't been to the Level 88 jazz club, but saw it the other day. Pretty snazzy looking place. It's tucked away on 9th just outside the Gulch near the Mercy Lounge and Cannery Row. I don't know much about it, but it looks like a ton of cash was invested.

I keep looking at the old Universal Tire at 12th and Demonbreun (called something else now) and wondering about the Plaza of the Arts 14-story or however tall they mentioned for the site. With the opening of the new bridge next year (or so) and the increased accessibility of that intersection, I see this actually happening sometime. I would hope the other properties will develop as well. It would be a great sightline development to bookend the new towers at the south end of the Gulch.

I have never heard of the plaza of the arts development, do you remember the details?

Yes I'm interested in finding out more about Plaza of the Arts, too. It's listed as a proposal on Emporis, but there's no details. Does anyone have any information?

I did a little snooping and I manged to find some information concerning Plaza of the Arts. Here it is:

Plaza of the Arts

THis is from a Feb. 9th Article from the City Paper:

Southeast Venture LLC is piecing together its proposed Plaza of the Arts on 2.9 acres of land owned by the Pickel and Derryberry Family Partnership and located at 12th Avenue and Demonbreun Street. "Definition-wise, we are in the Gulch, and we feel like we're a gateway to the Gulch," said Jimmy Pickel, a broker with Southeast.The plan for the plaza, which has MDHA approval, calls for up to 300,000 square feet of office space, a suite-type hotel, and about 80,000 square feet of high-density residential space.

"We've had excellent activity with some developers interested in the property and some users. Our job now is to put the pieces of the puzzle together," Pickel said.

"There are tremendous things happening. It is truly becoming an 'avenue of the arts,'" Pickel said of the development along Demonbreun from the Schermerhorn Symphony Center to the Roundabout and Music Row area. "We're very enthused."

I noticed last night that the old adult bookstore at the southwest corner of 12th and Division is once again an adult bookstore--all light up in purple. This is certainly not the way to connect the Roundabout and the Gulch. I would think that the people at Bristol and Crossland would have to be raising an eyebrow at this. Not that this isn't a free country and not that people won't live next to such a building, but boy it sure looks like potential developers didn't act quick enough in this instance.

Here is another article from the NBJ about the Plaza of the Arts. I knew I had seen it but could not remember where. I have visited Southeast Ventures website and there is no concrete info on the project. They may be waiting on the Demonbreun Street bridge to be started.

I'm considering Watermark or Radius 10 in the Gulch for a date this week. Anyone been to either? Recommendations?

Radius 10 is GREAT. Pricey, but you should be expecting that if you're going for some eats in the Gulch. I recently went to Sambuca on a date, and it was awesome. They just "refreshed" their menu about a week ago. I recommend both locations.

EDIT: Btw, whatever happened to this Avenue of the arts project?

I think Radius 10 and Watermark are probably the best two eats in town now. Food, price (expensive) and overall experience are comparable but I think Watermark takes the prize. Radius is very loud and I didn't care for the decor as much. I'd recommend a table in the bar area at Watermark. Enjoy!

I believe this project is dead. Am I correct? It would have been huge!

barakat, I love Radius 10. The food is wonderful and yes a little pricey but worth it. The staff is great as well. It's not too loud and has a nice relaxed atmosphere with good lighting. The patio is nice if it is not too humid.

I would recommend the pork tenderloin or the fillet. There is also a goat cheese tortellini that is good too. Oh and the brick oven pizzas are really good.

Yeah, I got the pizza one day (at Radius 10). Very good, reminded me of some of the best I had in Italy!

Friends,

Radius 10 is VERY cool. Sleek, almost industrial atmosphere. I haven't eaten there but have been a few times for a beer and love it.

I have not seen that rendering either, but will say it is out of date already with the construction of the Icon to the right along with Terrazzo. But still very cool. I expect that when Velocity is well under way, it will look as if the area will be connected.

I like how on the left picture, there are actually buildings on the bridge, so it stays walkable. That's a cool idea. And can anybody point out on the bottom right picture where all of the gulch projects are?

I know in Atlanta those are office buildings that you're thinking of. But I don't know, those look like residential buildings in the rendering. Of course, they actually look like ugly townhouses, but that's neither here nor there.

I noticed last night that a lot a few blocks down from the Icon site has a for sale sign up. I don't remember the intersection but if you drive down 12th towards Icon from demonbreun it will be on your right. I think it says something like "build to suit" maybe, instead of for sale. But I wonder if we will see something else go up there in the next few months?
