Remember all those promises about the new big-name businesses that would come flocking to Wilson Yard and put Uptown on the retail map, erasing the blight and making the tens of millions of dollars spent worthwhile? Well, there's Target. And ... Target. And ... 23,000 square feet of empty storefronts, which makes a nice bookend to the rest of the empty storefronts on Broadway.
Where are Crate & Barrel, Panera Bread, AT&T, the movie theatres, XSport Fitness, Chili's, and all the other big-time, Uptown-renaissance names that Peter Holsten mentioned as possible tenants, just over a year ago?
Finally, the retail that will save Uptown is on the way: EveryBlock reports that 4400 Broadway is getting an interior buildout for . . . a nail salon.
Just another $30,000 of tax money to renovate the space. Quite an accomplishment, Helen and Peter.
Update from the Baum Realty site: Take it for what it's worth, but the updated tenants are shown in the graphic below: PNC Bank in the corner retail space and Five Guys closest to Target?
