Sad news... but always an opportunity for something else.

Perhaps a local craft brewery could open a taproom, like Deep Ellum Brewing plans to do at the One Stop Printing location on University.

I find it odd. That so restaurants come and go. With such popularity of the area.

Maybe location.  Maybe the area has too many restaurants and sports bars.  Maybe the restaurant was poorly managed.

Greedy real estate owners/developers want too much money and not all businesses will not pay that much. Just the other day I looking up an art gallery that was in Bishop Arts, turns out they closed down because the rent had increased from $3,000 a month to $7,000.  When rent is increased you have to make up the money, which trickles down to the consumer.

It was there for 8 years.

For a restaurant or bar, that's a pretty good run...

8 years is a really good run, especially for that area.  Imagine how many other restaurants and bars have come and gone in the last 8 years.

 

If "greedy" owners are really charging above market rent, won't the market sort that out?  And is that really happening since these spaces in the 7th Street area don't sit empty for very long?

Yes, look at all the empty space in Crockett Row, the strip next to snap Kitchen, and the empty retail at Museum Place. Some of those places have never seen tenants and how long have they been there?

I'll admit I haven't been through Crockett Row recently or real often in general.  I drove through Museum Place last night and I do every couple of weeks and I can't say that I see a lot of empty retail space.  Maybe one or two spaces in the building with Mr. Gatti's and World of Beer.  Regardless, my point was that I don't see a lot of room for the word "greed" in a discussion about a subject where supply and demand are in play.  None of these real estate developers are non-profit and, if they're trying to charge above market, then the market will flesh that out.

I ate lunch at the Terra Mediterranean Grill restaurant today.  Two or three of the access streets to the restaurant are now blocked because of the hotel construction project.  The project is larger than I thought, taking up an entire city block.  One of our photographers should take a construction progress shot.  The hotel, once built and occupied, may bring in more daytime customers to West Seventh or Crockett Row.

That's apartments and retail, not a hotel.

It's the Elan at Crockett Row.  As JBB stated, it is residential with ground floor retail.  The hotel deal fell through and it is not being built.  Also, the original developer of this project is not present with what is being built.

I have to wonder if this area is reaching some sort of saturation point when it comes to street tacos.

JBB, I'm thinking you may be right.  The area seems to have too many street taco restaurants.

Part of the problem is that so many taco joints do little to differentiate themselves beyond the traditional street taco loaded with onions and cilantro.  That's fine sometimes, but I like to mix it up occasionally with something like the El Capitan at Salsa Limon or some of the flashier options at Torchy's.

And frankly if I want street tacos, I'm not going to some chef-run or chain place in W7th.  I'm going to El Tacolote, Tacos San Andres, or some other actual, y'know, street taco trailer.

I have really been looking foreard to this since it was announced. I have been hoping for something like this since I moved back 3 years ago.
I hope it stays popular... similar to St. Roch Market in New Orleans and the Ferry Building in SF

I'm excited about this too.  Reminds me of Gotham West Market or Brookfield Place in NYC.

St. Roch Market is pretty awesome. I doubt it’d have the same charm but it may still be successful.

Definitely nowhere near the charm of the other 2 places for sure... just thinking that maybe it will have some of the energy those places possess
