Just posted this in the Moxy thread, but the JW Marriott appears to have opening on August 18th.  Per the Marriott website.

Man, I still think JW could have made a killing with the top level of that parking deck (at least half of it) and turned it into outdoor event space.  Weddings, work events, etc.  Similar to what the Grand Bohemian did on their "rooftop" outdoor event space.  JW, being a very high end full service hotel, I would have imagined event space like that would be booked in a heart beat.  Also, I just think tops of parking decks are ugly and developers don't use enough creativity to make them useful other than a handful of projects (DEC green roof, Skyhouse's Parking amenity deck, Dimensional Place in South End, etc). I am looking forward to this project opening though...much needed high end hotel added to Uptown.

The Grand Bohemian’s outdoor space was originally planned to be a pool, something the JW has.

That weekend was probably the most people from out of town since the DNC. I wish more of those restaurants were open. I also heard many restaurants uptown closed at 12:30 on Saturday with thousands of people looking for a place to eat. There needs to be better coordination between the city and the restaurants in the area for events like those.

Most restaurants across the country are extremely short staffed- so they probably didn’t have a choice in the matter.

are you suggesting the city is somehow at fault that more restaurants weren't open?

I'm suggesting if we are going to host big events, there needs to be a better event planning liaison between the city/ City Center Partners and the businesses downtown. I understand staffing issues but having nearly no restaurants open with 300k people coming into town and thousands of people downtown for College Gameday is a really bad look. So yes, in short, the city could have done more to facilitate.

There is a good amount of planning. Every restaurant knew there would be tons of people. It wasn't some secret. Ultimately you can't force a private business to stay open though and many wanted to send their tired employees home after a long day of serving alcoholics and crowds. For some restaurants, they just don't cater to the mid-night crowd and convincing them to stay open isn't possible.

They closed at 1230- mid day not 1230 mid night.

Retail tenants looking good.  any word on the other spaces as at one point they had them all leased or close to it before the pandemic.  Little patio for the ramen place there and the Golden Cow signage looks good. 

^I wonder if they still plan on a food hall concept for the largest retail spot at Ally? The location facing the parking garage in the alley way.
