When the venue closed back in May 2015, rumors went around that the venue was sold, so that the property could be developed into a restaurant. I went past the place a few days ago ‒ the 'Empire' sign is still up, and nothing, that we can see from the outside, has been done to the place since it shut down.


Does anyone know what's going on?

I've heard the same restaurant rumor as you, but have no idea if a tenant has been signed or if some deal is in the works.

On a related note, that plaza is one of the ugliest in the area and more than a bit dumpy looking. I'd love to see a developer come in, buy the existing plaza along with the 7-11 and Einstein's properties, demolish all three buildings, and build a new retail or mixed-use facility that gives a more integrated sense of character to that corner of Old Keene Mill and Rolling Roads.

Lump in that gas station as well. I always hated going to Jaxx because of that convoluted entrance.

Hmm, any idea on who owns the plaza?
