Chipotle downtown?
« on: November 18, 2018, 12:08:45 AM »
While on the Chipotle website I noticed they have a location in 32202 listed as opening soon. Any idea on where this may be going in?

^Interesting find!

The address listed on the Chipotle site matches the new Brooklyn Place retail strip going in near Brooklyn Station.

If I had to guess, I'd say Brooklyn Place as well. I've always expected that they'd be one of the tenants there.

Yeah it's Brooklyn Place.  Going to be interesting to see how it impacts the Burrito Gallery next door.  I've heard they're also trying to put a Panera in there.

I'd assume so. There's been nothing to suggest that it has died.

Except that it is supposed to open in July 2019 and there is still a street going right through the property.  In the original article from last year the developer said it was 90% leased.  Seems like if it was 90% leased they might want to start building soon.

Probably still dealing with financing but it's a 12k square foot single level strip mall and surface parking lot. A Cheesecake Factory or Walgreens covers more square footage. It won't take a full year to construct.

Plans filed.

City Council needs to approve a half-acre land swap, and  then everything should be set to go.

Environmental is still being worked on (which is a State issue), but the project is very close to going vertical. Expect some info about potential tenants very soon :)
