About Five Guys....they also closed the one in Carrollwood and another on Ulmerton Rd. (maybe more have closed). I love their burgers and fries but only ate there maybe twice a year. My guess is they just are not making enough business.

I have a feeling that's the case. The one in Brandon Mall seems to do okay, but the one in South Tampa seems to almost always be empty. I've only eaten at Five Guys maybe three times because their items are so pricey.

Pricey, limited menu and extremely unhealthy.

I love the fries, but I would rather make it to retirement.

Went to the one at Park and US19 years ago. While waiting for the food, couldn't help but notice the grease in the air. Took a bag of fries that literally become soaked with grease.

The taste wasn't bad but it was unhealthy enough not to go back.

Personally like Evo's, that would be a great fit for Skypoint!

I agree. I think Evos would do very well in SkyPoint! I like Evos!

Thurman and other Skypoint residents should reach out to them.

The closest one is the SOHO on Howard.

Both locations I am familiar with, Howard and 4th are always busy!

Evos would probably be a good fit. Or maybe a Crispers? Or a Sweet Tomatoes To Go? Something like that...

I would say those all sound great, but I'll bet it's more likely someone who serves food but counts on alcohol as a revenue stream.

I drove by Vintage Lofts yesterday and I noticed some work being done on the site immediately to the east of Vintage. A little digging later and the project that's being built there is for 5 townhomes and is being built by SoHo Capital.

No renderings, but shows the lot in question.

Are you talking about the site fronting Cypress? The zoning that's mentioned on that website is for the lot(s) on the SW corner of Lemon and Oregon next to the five existing townhouses.

This is the lot that I'm referring to and this is from the SoHo Capital website.

Phase II of Westend Townhomes (Platted as Westend Townhomes South) is across the street towards the bottom left in the pic shown above, next to Phase I. The site shown and highlighted above is for something else, though it is owned by the same investment group.

edit... I think the highlighted site was originally supposed to be a phase 2 for the Vintage Lofts?

^Are you talking about the big lot or little lot? Both parcels are currently owned by this same group. I didn't look at the transaction history though, so I dont know when they bought these parcels.

Hopefully the big lot isn't being wasted on townhouses.

The big lot is where the construction (ground work) has already started, the sign I saw said townhomes from the $200's.

Well, Vinatage Lofts has had a lot of setbacks. There have been some major construction repairs, not sure if the original contractor provided any assistance with.

Town Homes will add some 'ownership' to this area. Probably better than just adding more rentals, this should keep up the overall neighborhood in the long-run.

One advantage for the Vintage Lofts now is there garage connects all the buildings where as the expansion would not.

I wonder if they will put them on facing the street with the the garages all facing each other on the center. Perhaps there is a rendering somewhere.....

Looking at the small townhome building across the street, I can see them adding an access road in from State Street.

They could easily cram two rows of units facing each other. Do 3 floors if need be.

I've platted urban townhouse developments that had about the same amount of land to work with. (Highland St Townhomes near DT St Pete quickly comes to mind. Sites look like theyre about the same size. IIRC, we fit 48 (or was it 42) townhouses. Can probably expect something similar here.

"Developers Lennar Homes and Soho Capital had a ceremonial groundbreaking today at the site of Westend Townhomes, located at 1500 Lemon St., a few blocks west of University of Tampa. The approximately $11 million complex will consist of 39 three-story townhomes, ranging from 2,173 to 2,410 square feet, priced in the high 200s."
