Where are those people walking to in that bottom picture? There's nothing over there...
Their cars in the parking lot, maybe?

So this is office product number two announced since we heard about the lack of new product coming online to meet demand. Well, three if you count the office building at central market in Uptown. But, a lot of new towers have been announced of late, impressive since we keep hearing that this cycle is done.

I walked down to Victory Park this morning/early afternoon and was surprised at all the people that were patronizing the businesses. It actually had some type of energy.

I also seen someone who I assume to be a part of the redevelopment of Victory Park, talking to someone about the new restaurants that are going to open in VP. I know for sure he said a Chipotle is going in and some other places...which I’ve never heard of and sadly I forgot the names. Things seem to be looking up for VP and it makes me hella excited.

You know VP turned the corner if Chipotle wants to move in. I expected them to return downtown at some point and I was hoping it would be inside the loop, but this makes sense.

Yeah, VP has greatly improved since the last time I was there and it shows. I’m sure many other businesses will start to follow. Especially, when the new residential tower gets built. BTW the streetlights had banners that said “SoVi”. I was like what the hell...what’s with the acronyms?! I just can’t get myself to say “South Victory” let alone “SoVi”. Ewww...lol :lol:

Thanks for the positive update. It's very surprising to hear there was some activity considering it's a Tuesday during the day.

I really think the Stars getting so deep into the playoffs really helped bring a TON of people out to the area at just the right time. So many people were telling me they went there to watch the games and were shocked at how much there was to do in VP now.

I think this is a very accurate take - it was interesting to see the crowds that the stars brought both for games and for watch parties during the away games. It's always happened but I've never seen it at this scale and of course at this length due to their playoffs success. Definitely helped showcase what Victory has to offer. Hell, just Hero alone has boosted the liveliness of the area significantly.

Now that you mention it, that makes a lot of sense. The good weather we’re having I’m sure is helping as well. Many of the restaurant patios were pretty full this afternoon too.

BTW Klyde Warren Park was packed to the brim with people. It was so full that I lowkey felt claustrophobic and it was very difficult to find a spot to chill. I guess that’s a good problem to have. I should have took a picture because it was seriously packed! It literally looked like a Saturday afternoon.

The old Chase bank next to the CVS on main would be a perfect Chipotle spot in the loop.

New concept called "Feed Me Pronto" is opening next to Sift + Pour. Looks like a strong fast-casual addition.

It was oddly run. They never turned the sign on in the mornings—to save money? Anyway at the busiest time of day for a juice place it looked closed. Strange.

This has allegedly been opening for 2 years. I'll believe it when I see it.

I live near by. I always thought it was a motorcycle club. So never went.

I don't really know how important/significant this is, but here it is.
