It looks like construction has fully started on Midtown Plaza. They’ve remove a section of the precast side to begin demo of the interior.
Is this still latest rendering?

I think that is the rendering for both phases. It only looks like they are working in the existing building right now (right of the picture).

Also, they are working on the old Soli building on Armour and Broadway and the building next to Gomers. I’ve heard the butcher shop will move into it and be torn down for more parking.

Parking does suck there but it's cause people don't use the other parking lot or park on the street. There is lots of street parking by gomers

So, the theory is Broadway Butcher is moving into the old Soli space? Just wanted to clarify. The building Broadway Butcher is in now kind of sucks - but certainly don't want it replaced by a surface lot.

Facepalm if true that current BB is torn down for parking. The continuing suburbanization of midtown, sigh. Or maybe 1 step forward, 2 back... haven't really tallied.

Full disclosure: not totally sure about this rumor yet, but was told Gomers bought the building to the north of BB, (They also own BB building) and that they plan to move BB one block north and tear down current spot for parking. There was also some talk of a cheese place to compliment the butcher spot but I believe that idea died.

Yep, no one parks on street there. Plenty of parking on Broadway in addition to their lot. Frustrating - urban living pet peeve!
