    Thanks for the update . Just a thought. Why not move the former hodges sandwich shop now and the Waffle shop too.both would certainly be profitable in a neighborhood this close to the Convention Center and the obvious success of Taylors . My guess is that they are hoping it deteriorates to the point that the attempt to move it causes it to collapse. I hear they are looking for a restaurant for 7th and NY ave but I also know from people interested in the location and other Douglass properties supposedly available for lease that phone calls are never returned.

    According to one of the five articles I’ve read on this (big development news!), Douglas is looking for a high-end (but not too high-end) tenant for NE corner of 7th & NY, something akin to an Apple Store in cachet. I’m not surprised, actually: MVSquare is going to be hot stuff in 3-5 years, what with the streetcar, improvements to the Library and Convention Center, the hotel at 9th & Mass, and the redevelopment of the NPR site, so having something anchoring that corner is important to drawing foot traffic up NY.
