It's right next to that new shopping center and in front of those (horrible) new apartments just west of Hampton and Fort Worth Ave. At first glance, it looks like a grocery store, but it can't be..can it?


They really are grotesque looking abominations. Its hard to decipher if they are townhomes or apartments; Seriously what are they? "TownApartments" .. utterly disgusting.

I know that some of the storefronts will be dental offices. I saw a small sign on one of them.


Are you talking about Lincoln Kessler Park? Or something else (link?)?

Yes I am. I can't believe the developer went with such a bland suburban design. I look away every time I drive by them. A new 24 Hour Fitness would probably do very well here. The downtown location would lose a ton of members though. Lots of OC residents use that one. I wouldn't blame them for leaving. That downtown 24 Hour is a real dump.

At some point I heard that they were getting a Sprouts up in that area? I have seen this building and have wondered what it is going to be. It kind of looks two level in some parts so not sure it would be a grocery store.

My understanding is that Central Market and Sprouts were both looking at sites including this one. CM of course picked Bishop Arts, and Sprouts picked El Fenix on Colorado and Beckley. No clue if that's still in the works or if it fizzled, but clearly neither of them are in a hurry.

What bugs me about the 24-hr Fitness is that Lincoln Property Company hasn't made a big announcement with confetti and balloons. You'd think it would attract more residents to their new apartment complex, not to mention drive tenant demand for their new but mostly empty shopping center, which so far has landed a dentist office and a nail salon.

No doubt that 24-hr Fitness will attract a fast-casual lunch place, which is what this area desperately needs.
