I toured this place the other day. Very nice. They said they are 85% leased (started leasing majority of units in May) and that their micro-units have a year long wait list.

Glad to hear that it's doing well! I've been concerned that its location further east would make it unpopular.

I keep running into new people at downtown events and it strikes me that a significant number of them report living in this building. Good stuff.

The north corner spot here is going to be a coffee shop. I completely forgot to ask which one but can probably be found on permits or I'll ask. They're getting ready to take over the space and start construction.

The facial bar has relocated and should be opening up today after a final inspection. The makeup bar place looks close to opening next to the gym.

A tailor is going into one of the smaller spaces. City Gym is taking some office space too.

There's absolutely no work being done on cellar rat's and I question if it will ever happen, but they still have a big sign up. No progress on the main restaurant space either.

That's great news and what I keep hearing as well. I just would love to see some activity, but I know these things are hard.
