It's a high value location and from what I've been told, there's been interest but Cordish is holding off for a tenant who is willing to commit to a 10 year lease at minimum. Don't be surprised if a tv or radio station goes in there. Otherwise, a nice mexican restaurant is a top priority and highly desired by Cordish.

A TV studio would be cool

P&L is KC's mini Times Square and it would be cool to see newscasts, local talk shows with the street activity behind scenes. That's the ideal spot if not 12th/Main.

P&L doesn't need another large sitdown restaurant, needs more variety.

I agree with the TV station aspect. I've mentioned this several times when I've had the ear of a Cordish. You would think one of the local stations would want this to set them apart. They all do the same boring sets with no exterior views, would be very cool to have have the streetcar passing by in the background and other activity. If I were Cordish and that happened, BRGR's lease would be going up a good chunk!

This would definitely be a good spot for a TV studio.

I'd also like a Korean BBQ spot somewhere downtown.

It's time to start emailing all the TV stations in town and try to get one of them in that space. Ultimate importance for civic momentum. I'm not even sure if I'm being sarcastic or not wit this. I really would like to see a TV studio there.

It would also help with suburbanites' image of downtown/city, who primarily see crime on news. Seeing downtown functioning with pedestrians every day in a positive manner could really help change perceptions, especially for those who fear the city. The streetcar alone has helped but local TV news has been partly harmful to the city's image in past (especially the sensationalism) yet can also be a primary window towards a more positive image if they weren't so obsessed with the TV equivalent of click bait.

And Cordish should certainly want the free advertising of district in background with about four news casts every day.

I'm lost on a nice Mexican restaurant. Are we talking something like a Margaritaville?

Cantina Laredo is the stereotypical nice Mexican place. I think abuelos up north may also qualify

I was pleasantly surprised at Abuelo's. I figured it would be terrible, though, so my expectations may have been easy to surpass.

Expect a new tenant announcement soon..... it's nothing that's been discussed in here as far as I can tell.

Does it fit the 'Nice Mexican Restaurant' mold that Cordish envisioned?

A fun nice Mediterranean place would be awesome.
