Was at Target this morning and noticed they were clearing off the vacant spot behind Montgomery Plaza. I assume this is going to be a Chik-fil-a.

Bad timing on the University Co-op store. The way they are playing this year, their merchandise will be about as popular as the Cowboys.

well, it is a little out of the way of the soccer mom zone, unlike the AHHS location.

Correction the drive thru is different all to one side, a loop on the Target side. They put up patio seating towards the MW side, a bit more ped friendly that I expected. I am guessing it will be full with downtown workers looking for cheap lunch.

Sweet, a patio in the middle of a parking lot ;-)

Do you really think that downtowners will drive to C-f-a just for lunch? Is it really that good?

That place will be packed every lunch hour. The CFA on North Central in Dallas is always packed with downtown folks and it is 3 miles from downtown (btw--it is one of the highest grossing locations of CFA in the country). Most CFA locations are fast, reasonably priced and for the most part good food.

The location is great as it gets the worker crowd and the stay at home moms with kids from the hoods off Camp Bowie/Montecello/Rivercrest areas.

Quite frankly I think this Chick-fil-A will be extremely successful. If I had the money I would have put one in that spot. My biggest concern is the traffic. It is already difficult getting out of that center on to Carroll. Now it will be even worse. I do not think they planned the exits well.

The restaurant is the first to be built to the standards of the U.S. Green Building Councilís Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification program. As a result, the Montgomery Plaza restaurant will serve as a testing ground to evaluate and benchmark a variety of sustainability efforts.

Since the street modifications I've been waiting for traffic to settle down over there but it just keeps getting worse. The lights back traffic up sometimes past the parking lot exits, I've wondered if those living there with a 7th street view ever took pictures of the chaos that goes on over there.

Guys working inside the old Wolf Camera shop told me it's going to be a Pizza Inn. I haven't been to one before, but I'm under the impression it's a step down from Domino's...seems an odd place for one.

The Fort Worth Weekly reports that Montgomery Plaza has now joined other property owners along West 7th Street in towing away cars that are parked by people who leave the development.

Not that I don't feel bad for the people getting towed, but it is sure enough what they need to do. It is not public parking. If I was paying a bunch of money to rent a space there for my restaurant and there was not enough parking for my customers because people were parking in front of my business and walking a few blocks away, I would sure be unhappy and demand they police the parking lot for non-customers.

Just a matter of private property.

I have notice people parking in that vacant lot across from Chuey's. It looks like they must have made a deal with the owner because that lot used to be roped off with negative signage. I think Chesapeake owns that lot. (I know this because once I figured there was not enough parking, I had the bright idea to buy that lot and build a garage.) I still think a garage and parking could be compatible with natural gas drilling once all the drilling is done. Don't think there is enough space for the fracking water though. (I don't have a clue about any of this... Somebody stop me.)

Fortworthology has an interesting commentary on the issue that was posted this afternoon.

Brian, I don't know enough about how much land a gas well needs to answer your question about whether there is enough room across from Chuy's for a well and a parking garage.

I'm not sure how I missed this, but Montgomery Plaza appears to be bringing in a Michael's store in the vacancy East of Target.

That would be great, I hate going to Cityview for my scrapbooking supplies...

...but seriously, that will be handy for the things we need now and then from that type of store.

Sure enough. Pretty big deal. Sure enough attracts a certain customer type to the area. Could be others would benefit. (Like Pier One or Ross)

Yep. Good, solid store. We live closer to the other one, but hopefully we'll be closer to W7 in the future and my wife will go to the new one.

I've known about it for a while. I thought I had posted something, but often I have full intentions of putting something on the board and then I forget. Senior moments.

Walking to Target and Michaels yesterday, I brought my camera.  The sky got really pretty an was glad I had it.  This photo, to me, looks like an artists renditions of what a complex might look like. Almost fairytale like.  But shot a single camera shot.

Meh, no one notices it unless you look for it and I'll bet it makes for a pretty sweet rooftop deck.

Besides, it's a better aspect of the project than owning a condo overlooking a strip-mall parking lot.  :)

I'm so weary of concept restaurants opened by chefs.  I like to eat at a place run by a cook.
