In the Market August 5, 2008

Posted by cbuchanan in Uncategorized.

More good news for downtown–and more proof that 2nd Ave. N. is booming!

Holiday Inn Express planned for Entrepreneurial District.

Gypsy Market to open in time for Artwalk.

There’s also the news that Southern Research Institute is buying Quinlan Castle. They’re going to fix up the exterior and figure out some nonresidential use for it. That’s fine, though I noticed there’s a big loophole that would allow them to declare it unfit for their needs and potentially tear it down (which, if you’ll recall, is ALL they wanted to do to one of the city’s most unique buildings several years ago). So while I’m glad they’re going to keep the place from falling apart for the time being, I’m also wary.

Ooooh. That Gypsy Market sounds like JUST the sort of thing I’ve been wishing for (and suggesting as a practical alternative to the cries of “we need a chain grocery store down here!”) since we moved to 1st Ave N. Yay! I hope he peddles some really good granola.
