From todays Real Estate column in the Press Register...

WOW Wingery & Cafe has leased the former Tijuana Flats at Shoppes of Midtown at Catherine and Government streets, according to Christie Amezquita of Saad & Vallas Realty Group . The 3,400-square-foot restaurant should open within two months, she said. The franchise is based in Biloxi.

and...

Georgia investors bought 2.6 acres at the northwest intersection of Old Shell Road and Sage Avenue for $380,000 and plan to build a Texaco station and a 6,000-square-foot convenience store, according to Justin Smith of Saad & Vallas Realty Group. Kimberly Johnson of RELS Title handled the transaction.

I think redevelopment of the Old Shell Corridor should be the next big project once the Broad Street deal gets done. The road runs from downtown through the wealthiest part of town and then out into the county, so it has a broad reach. The area has some historic and nice properties in the Midtown sections and approaching downtown. The section from SpringHill to Ashland place is one break in the link that if spruced up, could connect two nice areas of town. Follow that up by encouraging development/revitalization from Ashland Place to Downtown, and you will have created long elegant street with several key intersections(OS and McGregor, OS and Florida St, OS at McGill, etc) that would be hotspots. Look at what the Naman's did to Old Shell and Florida Street. The area has nice bones to begin with(Spring Hill, St Pauls, UMS, Ashland Place, Country Club, Florida Street intersection, McGill, DewDrop, etc), it just needs some fleshing out. Street scape improvement, sidewalks, lighting etc would be a good start. Plus citizens have alread setup The Village of Springhill community group that are working towards some of this stuff in part of that area. I think it would help to reconnect the wealthiest area of town back to the cities roots downtown. Just a thought.

Naman's Midtown Market owner Alec Naman said that the market will close due to declining revenue since fall 2008. The market and restaurant had opened in November 2006 in a renovated circa 1929 garage.

Naman's Midtown Market to shut down
