Site work has started for The Habit in the Barnes and Noble parking lot.

The picture below does not illustrate the scope of the fenced off area. The depth is correct, but the width should be doubled. Significant impact to the B&N parking area.

I may have missed it, but does anyone know what is going into Royce Camps building besides SmallCakes across from the AC Hotel?  it is being up-fitted for a restaurant, but I can't remember if one has been named.

I know it's been awhile since the announcement but wasn't Konnichiwa (hibachi and sushi) going to locate there?

I received unofficial confirmation from a realtor that the B&N building is indeed on its way out, and something great is coming in its wake. I asked for more specifics, and I got a "not yet" as a response. Hopefully we'll hear more soon!

That's still pretty sad to lose the only large bookstore in town.  Unless they are planning to relocate, which I kind of doubt...

It was one of the few places that made for a nice evening out 25 years ago. It's almost like a staples of Spartanburg! At the same time, it must be tough competing with likes of Amazon and just all of the content that is available digitally. We'll see what happens - I've been hoping for a relocation also, but not sure where they would go.... We shall see!

With  all the developments downtown, I would honestly love to see Barnes & Noble relocate into the downtown area on the Denny's tower side (so its not near Hub City)

Morgan Square Hospitality (Delaney's owners) announced "Isla's on the Square" (coastal kitchen, cocktails, oysters) in the former Growler Haus location.  They also announced that they have acquired Gerhard's Cafe (original owner Gerhard Grommer passed away in August).

Edit: H-J article

Bad news for Gerhard's, I'm afraid.
