Fresh hot Pickleman’s shot. This does not look like a restaurant near opening.

EDIT: I don't know why my image is so small. I tried to make it larger but it just became pixelated.
Removed the _d from the file and presto:

I just ate at an existing Picklemans what for getting a sense of the place. I would place it below Planet Sub and inline with or below Subway.

I disagree.

Picklemans pizza and soups are good. I ate there many times when I lived in downtown Columbia mo. Get the French dip, chipotle chicken, or baja chicken soup. People like the pizzas too. Typically they make their food faster than they can build this location.

I’d put them slightly lower than like a firehouse, for sure better than subway or Quiznos.

No it couldn't, it was still empty then. I worked for the previous owner of the space, they had problems selling the space for years and didn't stop occupying the building until around four years ago.

So...that realistically explains a year (18 months if we're being generous) of the delay?

For their sake, they better hope that's a very profitable location to be worth all those sunk costs.

The guy claims the Westport building, which is less than 10 years old, had challenges “due to the building’s age”

Really tells me all I need to know about how honest he’s being.

If the North Loop was full of new apartment buildings like City Club, ARTerra and Reverb, Mildred's would be hopping.
