I'm glad he spoke up.  Downtown does need to be re-energized.

Mr. Gatti's is not going into the building where Samwon Garden is located.  It appears that everything on the east side of the site is addressed 5201 McCart.  The pizza place is going into the easternmost lease space of the larger building on the south side of the site.  Originally, that space was occupied by Mitchell's Department Store.  They were a junior department store here locally.  When that center was built, the larger building had a Thrify Cut-Rate Drug store in the west space, where Van Markle Plumbing Supply is currently located.  In the center was a Buddies Super Market along with their Handy Man Center Hardware Store, and on the east end, was Mitchell's.  Buddies was bought out by Winn-Dixie and the store changed names then.  When they built an even larger store at Westcreek & Walton, the space later became the McCart Thrift Center.

This is only the ground floor.  The upper two floors are still boarded up.

Cantina Cadillac Bar is looking to reopen sometime in August.  That will put it at a year+ for reopening.  WFAA has the story.
