I saw something today I had no idea was happening. Between Moe Levy's and the condo building that used to be the Governor's House Hotel, there are three spaces adjacent to or even connected to Moe Levy's that are being renovated. I can tell they are going to look great, even though they are only one story. I don't know whether they are already spoken for, but the new look will be great for that block.

Are you referring to these storefronts? https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Colum...12,1.65,,0,1.6

Man, they fit the definition of "non-descript," lol. Good to see them being rehabbed. It would be nice to see new uses found for the other two around the corner as well: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Colum...,76.03,,0,-2.5

Yes. I see from the street view photo that there actually are more than three store fronts there. I have always been glad they were there and had retail in them, but I can already tell they are going to look a lot better, even though right now they basically look gutted. They have started putting in some new frame work.

Default I think there was something in the state about this awhile back

But can't find it. But ya this is pretty cool as it portends well for the other blocks adjacent to Main Street like the one with the new Sheraton conference center. Once that is complete it'll likely inspire some action on that block

Ben Arnold purchased Moe Levy's. He plans to build apartments and retail on the ground.

Do you have a link to more information? Is he going to keep the Moe Levy's building at one story? A multi-level would look great there. I can't believe I missed the plan and renderings that were surely presented to DDRC. I'll look back in the records.

Doubt he's submitted plans to DDRC yet, heard a few days ago he recently purchased or was about to purchase the property.

He is already putting a remake on the strip along Lady Street. I checked the DDRC agendas for the last 18 months and that strip isn't on any of them. Interesting. Surely he'll go vertical with the actual Moe Levy's building on the corner of Lady and Assembly if he's doing apartments there.

Default Bella vista goes belly up

Story in the state, leaves large vacancy On main drag of Gervais. Since I'm a dude never shopped there so hopefully landlord can attract new retail. It's a large spce though so may have to be reconfigured to land new tenants
