The new cafe/bistro in SPR will be called Kool Beans, if i'm not mistaken. Also, I'm not sure if this is news worthy, but JEA continues major construction at their site just South of 1st & Laura. You can best see it from Laura (new above ground water tank).

There's a gourmet restaurant in Tallahassee called Kool Beanz Cafe that I always heard was really good.  Any relation to this project by any chance?

Looks like chains are starting to take more of an interest in R/A... I'm not a fan of Tijuana Flats at all. Their sauces are great, but their food is so-so and their "vibe" is artificial (its from Orlando after all). I'd much rather see Chipotle in the 5 Points area.

Definitely a lot of good things going on in the core though. Great news

2/3 of the downtown EverBank build-out is having furniture installed and should be occupied by mid-June.  the final third should be done by the end of July.

I noticed Monday night that another store has opened at the Landing, it is in the old Foot Locker location. I believe that end of Landing is now 100% occupied.

Is there no news or information about the 2nd Julia's Urban Grocery location, proposed for the vacant building just off the intersection of Riverside Blvd. and Prudential Drive (south side of the E corner)?  I thought they were going ahead with both locations?

Mean while another locally owned store has opened at the Landing. The entire wing is now full.
