Really? 20 restaurants in a two-block area not enough for you? :)

Or 4, Jonny B'z, Elk, Winchester, Donkey. And Elk only kind of counts. Winchester and Donkey are two of my most frequented establishments, both in easy walking distance. I would love to have a new option or 2 come to that stretch. I know Georgina's is going in, but 1 more couldn't hurt.

Well, we were open to that too of course---and we had a great offer from an established operator.   The retail stores were ready to go tho, and a simpler buildout....   and based on what the neighborhood association said they wanted, it just made life easy so we hit the button.  

I heard rumblings of Zack Sklar and friend chicken. I'll be perfectly happy with retail going in there, we just need Tatum to move their business elsewhere and free up the last bit of that intersection.

I would venture to say that Wealthy Street is pretty close to saturation point with restaurants. Otherwise it will continue to have to rely on people driving there to keep all of these restaurants open. Keep in mind there are at least two new restaurants going in down the block near Wealthy Theatre. 

But whateves, not my money. :)

Still have to wait an hour and a half to get into Donkey on the weekends.

Chik Fil A also needs space for 20 cars in their drive through.

Updated pics--- share your input !    The sample looked good but it came out kinda "orange" as you can see in the photo.   Not exactly as I'd hoped, but improvement over the original storefront for sure..    Which one of you designers has a good recovery plan for us to consider ?   Until the stain soaks in, we probably can't re-stain or paint just yet.

Other news: we have secured two different retail  Tenants.    I don't dare announce their names before asking, Leases are being signed this week.    Both will be a great fit for this block, with lots of synergy with other (existing) business already in the neighborhood.  These are retail shops, not bars.   Names coming soon-- hope to be operational by November.

I think it looks great actually. The dark stained wood being used a lot probably only has about 3 - 5 years left and it will be out-of-style, in my humble construction opinion.

Definitely an improvement, but you're right that it's missing something.  I'll admit I walked by it and thought "Pioneer town?" Problem is this:  It isn't Woodland Mall.  Traditionally exteriors were never done in stain because it simply does not last.  You end up restaining it every two years. Paint it.  It will never look right so long as you try to stain the thing.  www.historichousecolors.com  will get it right for a few hundred bucks for a color consult.  Hit it first with a tannin blocking primer to kill the knots, then apply the paint.  Fixed.

Just saw this, x99 may be right on this one.
