    Construction is underway on first phase of Champlin riverfront revival – Minneapolis Star Tribune - October 10, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    After decades of planning, Champlin will have a new place for people to live, play and gather along a stretch of the Mississippi riverfront that forms the suburbs northwest border.

    Construction is underway on the first market-rate apartments in several decades in the city, a mostly residential northwest suburb across the river from Anoka. A restaurant, event center and pavilion are up next. Its all part of Mississippi Crossings, a sprawling $100 million riverfront redevelopment project that will also include a public dock, river walk and plaza.

    The riverfront in Champlin used to be a source of commerce in the logging and mill days, said Bret Heitkamp, Champlins city administrator. This will provide opportunities for people who dont live on the river or have access to the river.

    The project has been on the drawing board since the late 1990s when residents and city staff started talking about how to make its woodsy riverfront more accessible to residents. This month, Minneapolis-based Greco Real Estate Development and Property Management broke ground on the Bowline, a 214-unit apartment building that will include an outdoor pool and two public pickleball courts.

    In addition to the apartments, the project will include an expanded green space with nearly 20,000 square feet of new outdoor community amenities including a city park and a 600-person riverfront amphitheater. Plans call for a pavilion with restrooms and gathering space that can be rented, a public plaza and open space that will have play equipment and an outdoor performance area. To expand recreational opportunities, a public boat landing is planned along with expanded docks to improve access to a 6-mile pool in the river thats popular with recreational boaters.

    Heitkamp said with no official downtown area or commercial district, dining options are lacking in the city, so plans also call for a waterfront restaurant thats expected to be completed in 2021. Called Dock 21, a nod to Champlins location 21 minutes from Minneapolis, it will include indoor and outdoor dining options, and there will be a grab-and-go food component that will make it easy for people visiting the public docks. Abrinas on the River, a 19,000-square-foot event center with a 6,000-square-foot rooftop space, can be reserved by residents and visitors for weddings, community groups and other gatherings.

    The project was first proposed in February 1999. Its been a long time coming and its nice to see it becoming a reality, said Heitkamp.

    Over the decades, planners have been developing private partnerships and assembling additional land, including acquiring some aging apartment buildings and single-family houses. Heitkamp said eminent domain was not required to make those acquisitions.

    A succession of mayors, council members and city staff have been focused on improving and adding infrastructure, including the multimillion-dollar reconstruction and cleanup of the Mill Pond Dam. In 2018, the city and MnDOT completed reconstruction of the Hwy. 169 corridor from Hayden Lake Road to the Anoka-Champlin bridge. And last year, United Properties completed construction of Applewood Pointe at Mississippi Crossings, a $30 million, 85-unit senior cooperative community near the Anoka-Champlin bridge.

    Last year, Greco was named the master developer for a 12-acre portion of the site, which is part of the Mississippi Crossings Tax Increment Financing District. Grecos president, Josh Brandsted, said the firm will tackle other aspects of the project involving the public infrastructure, such as the public parking facility. Greco recently started working with the Cohesion Group, a Twin Cities-based hospitality and entertainment consultancy that will help bring the dining and event center space to life.

    Until recently, the firm has focused much of its work on urban rental projects including several North Loop warehouse conversions. But with apartment vacancy rates in many parts of the Twin Cities on the rise, the company has been pursuing more projects outside the central cities. In the 2000s, the company developed a retail center in Bloomington, and in 2018 focused its efforts on a 400-plus-unit apartment project on a redevelopment site in Shoreview.

    In the last four years we have shifted our focus to the suburbs, said Brandsted. Being a local owner/operator, we felt the shifts in the market as they started to transpire.

    Lightfoot announces winners of the Winter Design Challenge: cabins, blocks, and heated tables – RADIO.COM - October 10, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Winter is coming...and this year with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there is much more to fear than White Walkers. But don't fret, because you can still dine out in the cold, as the city is preparing for new, innovative outdoor dining options.

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced Thursday the winners of the Winter Design Challenge a first-of-its-kind competition for community members to reimagine the winter outdoor dining experience in Chicago.

    After receiving over 600 submissions, a team of judges that included architects, designers, chefs, restauranteurs and servers selected three ideas that not only capture the spirit of Chicago, but can provide feasible and safe options for Chicagoans to enjoy dining out as temperatures drop.

    The winners of the Winter Design Challenge are:

    Amy Young, ASD | SKY, Cozy Cabins: Small modular, adjoining cabins that fit within the footprint of a standard parking space.

    We are honored that our concept was chosen for the Chicago Winter Dining Challenge. Our Cozy Cabins idea focused on creating a warm, welcoming experience to encourage Chicago residents to safely dine in rather than take out, said Amy Young of ASD | SKY. We wanted to create an outdoor destination centered around new experiences, neighborhood connections, and a sense of communityelements lost while dining at home. We hope this idea helps support small businesses and safely bring people together during this difficult year.

    Neil Reindel, Block Party: A flexible approach to outdoor dining that is adaptable and easy to implement for many different sites and street configurations.

    We are excited to have had the chance to reimagine our public spaces and provide Chicagoans an opportunity to experience the city in a fun and unique way. Chicago has always been a resilient city when faced with difficult times," said Neil Reindel. With Block Party we wanted to provide a warm place for people to reconnect as we move forward through the winter and into 2021.

    Ellie Henderson, Heated Tables: Modify the Japanese Kotatsu, an economical way to keep warm and cozy in cold months.

    I want to thank the City of Chicago, IDEO and the Illinois Restaurant Association for choosing my winter dining idea, said Ellie Henderson. My hope is that my proposal for using heated tables will help restaurants adapt, providing a novel open-air dining experience for their patrons that is safe and comfortably warm through colder months in 2020 and beyond.

    The winners of the Winter Design Challenge will each receive a $5,000 cash prize. Additionally, the IRA will be selecting local construction firms that will start the process of bringing these ideas to life. The process will include design development and technical refinement. Once complete, the firms will be able to construct prototypes that can be tested at Chicago neighborhood restaurants in the coming weeks. The IRA will choose those pilot restaurants, and the construction will be paid for with funds that BMO Harris has previously contributed for this purpose, the Mayor's Office said.

    "As we approach the winter months and adapt our COVID-19 response accordingly, we owe it to our restaurants to make sure they have what they need to continue keeping their doors open and serving their communities," said Mayor Lightfoot. "Thanks to IRA and the outstanding creativity of our Winter Dining Challenge winners, we will be able to not only make this a reality, but do so in a way that is safe and showcases our City's innovative spirit. I extend a huge congratulations to each of our Winter Dining Challenge winners."

    MayorLightfoot also announced in collaboration with the Illinois Restaurant Association (IRA), DoorDash will be providing $500,000 in financial support to Chicago restaurants to help cover the costs of winterizing their outdoor dining areas.

    As winter weather looms on the horizon, Chicago area restaurants will be able to apply to receive a $5,000 grant to defray winterization expenses such as the cost of heating equipment, additional safety materials to improve indoor dining, upgrades for air filtration systems, bulk orders of blankets for patrons, and more. Applications open on Oct. 16, and recipients will be notified by the end of December.

    To qualify, restaurants must be located in Chicago with three or fewer locations operating currently, 50 employees or fewer in 2019, and $3M or less in 2019 annual revenue per store.

    Restaurants not only entertain us. They employ a lot of people. They are critical, not just to the employees in the individual restaurants themselves. But think about the supply chain that goes into supporting the restaurant industry in our city. Its vital that we do everything that we can to uplift them to give them a fighting chance, Lightfoot said.

    To help restaurants and bars operate outside, the city will be holding webinars next week on safe outdoor operations. To register and learn more, visitwww.chicago.gov/businesseducation.

    Topping Off Ceremony Held As Construction Progresses On New Belmont Park Arena – CBS New York - October 10, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    ELMONT, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) Despite delays because of the pandemic, theres hope construction on the new Belmont Park arena will be completed and ready for hockey next year.

    Friday marked a milestone in the march to deliver thousands of jobs and billions in economic activity to Nassau County.

    It was the topping off ceremony for the New York Islanders UBS Arena at Belmont Park.

    The hoisting of the highest steel beam brought emotions from Stanley Cup greats of old: Tonelli, Goring, Gillies.

    So much joy as we go and try to create the environment thats necessary to win that fifth ring, Islanders co-owner Jon Ledecky said.

    There was evidence everywhere that the $1.5 billion site is taking shape, hoping to grow a beloved homegrown franchise while building up the Elmont community for generations to come.

    Thousands upon thousands of jobs, its close to the airports, its next to the city, and its really a shot in the arm for the economy, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran said.

    Its being touted as the last great arena built in New York of our generation, where people wont just come to a game, there will be live entertainment in a complex where people will park, eat, play and cheer.

    We designed this building specifically to be perfect for the Islanders and perfect for music. This will be one of the busiest music venues in all of the world, said Oak View Group Chief Executive Tim Leiweke.

    Its all privately funded. So, too, is a brand new Belmont LIRR station.

    Civic groups opposed the size and the scope of the project, worried it would worsen traffic, noise and pollution. Their lawsuits were eventually thrown out.

    Now, many are rallying around it.

    Its definitely gonna bring more revenue to the area in a way thats gonna attract more people, barbershop owner Emmanuel Eugene told CBS2s Jennifer McLogan.

    One more year? Yeah, think the best, I hope a lot of people coming, restaurant manager Julia Bichaido said.

    This represents what will be a return to normalcy for this area, National Hockey League President Gary Bettman said.

    The NHL hopes to drop the puck at the arena in November of 2021.

    After five years, the goal is in sight.

    The first phase of the Reno Ice indoor rink in south Reno is nearing completion and expected to open in early December.

    Construction superintendent Brad Richter said the rink construction should be complete in late November. The ice rink will be NHL-size, 200-feet-by-85 feet. There will be a mezzanine level capable of holding a restaurant in the future.

    The Jennifer M. O'NealCommunity Ice Arena rink is at 15500 Wedge Parkway near the intersection with Arrowcreek Parkway and is easy to see from the highway.

    "Every day it's fun coming to work because you get to see progress being made," Richter said. "For a skater like myself, it's exciting to be on site every day."

    Richter said it is a little unusual to be working on a big construction project in front of so many people driving by and that several people have stopped to ask him about the rink.

    "We see three to four visitors stopping by each week asking about figure skating, hockey leagues and public skating," Richter said. "Once we started erecting the structure, we are seeing those numbers increase and so far, all the comments have been positive with some even asking where they can make a donation and for those who do not know, Reno Ice is a non-profit with a 501(3)C exemption associated. So yes, the pressure is on to deliver."

    Those interested in donating can go to renoice.org.

    Reno Ice will have private lessons, public ice skating sessions, hockey leagues, broomball, curling, trade shows, tournaments, performances and figure skating.

    Richter said the rink will be using a reverse osmosis system,which provides pure ice, free of bubbles, particles and cracks, and reduces the overall amount of water used in maintenance on the top sheet. It willprovidea faster skating surface due to less friction.

    The electric Zamboni ice re-surfacing machine will utilizea Level-ice system laser. It will haveautomated precision blade control to createconsistent, level ice,saving energy, water and time between skating sessions.

    Richter, 49,is from Waunakee, Wisc., and he moved to Reno three years ago. He was part of the Waunakee Hockey Association where he helped build an ice rink facility. He played hockey since he was a child and playedwith the Madison Capitals of the USHL.

    He is still playing hockey in an adult league at the South Lake Tahoe rink.

    "Growing up and being exposed to hundreds of different types of rinks has provided me with the insight to help Reno Ice make the correct decisions in regard to operational features, functionality and getting the best product for their money," Richter said.

    Richter looks forward to seeing youth hockey grow in Northern Nevada and said getting a hockey team here is alsoa possibility, although nothing has been decided on that.

    "It will be great to see kids get out there and Reno grow a youth program from its infancy," he said.

    Discussion about proposed Taco Bell in Manalapan expected to resume – centraljersey.com - October 10, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    MANALAPAN Representatives of an applicant that is proposing to construct a Taco Bell restaurant at the corner of Route 9 south and Taylors Mills Road are expected back before the Manalapan Zoning Board of Adjustment on Oct. 15.

    Yum & Chill TB Holdings, LLC, is proposing to demolish a Shell gas and service station at the corner and to construct a Taco Bell. The applicant is represented by attorney Peter G. Licata, of the firm Sonnenblick, Parker and Selvers, Freehold Township.

    Initial testimony regarding the Taco Bell was presented during the boards July 16 meeting. Testimony resumed on Aug. 20 before the application was carried once more.

    Yum & Chill TB Holdings is seeking preliminary and final major site plan approval with bulk variances and use variance relief to permit the demolition of the Shell station and the construction of a 2,578-square-foot Taco Bell.

    The Taco Bell is proposed to have dine-in and drive-up service. The 0.8-acre property is owned by PMG New Jersey, LLC, and is in the Office Park 3 zone. The construction of a fast food restaurant and drive-up is not permitted in the OP-3 zone, according to a legal notice published by Licata.

    Access to the restaurant would be provided from one driveway on Taylors Mills Road and one driveway on Route 9 south.

    During the Aug. 20 meeting, traffic consultant Jay Troutman presented information regarding the number of vehicles that could be in line at the drive-up window at any given time. He said he observed vehicles at a Taco Bell on Route 9 south in Howell for 135 minutes (noon to 2:15 p.m. on a Wednesday in July).

    Troutman said that for 75 of the 135 minutes he observed the restaurant, there were between zero and three vehicles on line. For 52 minutes, there were between four and six vehicles on line. For eight minutes, there were between seven and 10 vehicles on line, he said.

    Once the line reaches a certain point, people will choose other options. People will not join a line where the wait is going to be too long, he said.

    Troutman said the peak times at the Taco Bell would be weekday lunch and weekday dinner. The lowest use would be on Sunday, he said.

    Planner John Chadwick testified on behalf of the applicant and sought to make the case that the granting of the use variance would be a benefit to Manalapan.

    He said, among other aspects of the plan, that the applicant is proposing to reduce the impervious coverage at the site from 90% to 70% (65% impervious coverage is permitted).

    At present, there are two driveways at the site on Taylors Mills Road and two driveways at the site on Route 9. The applicant is proposing to close one driveway on Taylors Mills Road and one driveway on Route 9. Chadwick called that aspect of the plan an advancement of public safety.

    The proposed development is a good fit for the Route 9 corridor, Chadwick said.

    Jennifer Beahm, the boards planner, did not take issue with the proposed reduction in lot coverage or the closing of the driveways, but did question certain aspects of Chadwicks testimony regarding the advancement of the municipalitys zoning.

    Previous testimony offered by project engineer Marc Leber, of East Point Engineering, Marlboro, indicated that left turns from the Taco Bell property to Taylors Mills Road would be prohibited.

    During the Aug. 20 meeting, zoning board member Mollie Kamen said she was concerned some people would turn right out of Taco Bell onto Route 9 south, turn right into the neighboring Wendys restaurant, use an access road that connects Wendys to Taylors Mills Road and then turn left onto Taylors Mills Road where that movement is permitted.

    Kamen expressed concern that people making the cut-through at Wendys after leaving Taco Bell would come into conflict with motorists waiting on the drive-up line at Wendys.

    Concern was also raised that people who want to travel west on Taylors Mills Road upon leaving Taco Bell will turn right onto Route 9 south and then drive through a nearby residential area (Briar Hill Drive, Country Lane, Princeton Drive) to get back to Taylors Mills Road to turn left and head west.

    Troutman said most of the vehicles entering the Taco Bell site will be pass-by traffic that will not drive through the neighborhood, but he said he reviewed the issue and estimated that during a peak hour, approximately five vehicles leaving Taco Bell would drive through the Briar Hill Drive neighborhood to return to Taylors Mills Road and head west.

    When the Aug. 20 meeting was opened to public comment, many residents expressed concern about the application.

    Some residents who addressed the zoning board said they live in the Briar Hill Drive neighborhood and were concerned about vehicles passing their homes; some speakers lamented the closing of the Shell service station; and some residents took issue with having a driveway on Taylors Mills Road.

    Resident Salvatore Viscusi said, We have more than we need with fast food restaurants. Keep Manalapan a beautiful little town and dont turn it into a circus.

    Resident Rex Lazewski said, I dont think you should change the use of the property.

    Resident Karen Eastman said, We dont need two fast food restaurants (Wendys and Taco Bell) on top of each other. I do need a service station.

    After the residents finished speaking, the zoning board members took a straw poll to determine where the Taco Bell application stood.

    Due to various concerns with the proposed use, the indication was that the application might not receive the five yes votes it needs for the use variance to be granted. The key concern for some board members was the traffic situation at the location.

    Licata, who represents the applicant, acknowledged traffic at the site is the key issue, but said the consensus of the applicants professionals is that the project as designed would improve the situation.

    Licata asked for the application to be carried to determine if there is a way forward, and the board carried the application to the Oct. 15 meeting.

    A Brief History of Friendship Fountain and St. Johns River Park – The Coastal - October 10, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    In the early 1960s, as the city embarked on various capital improvement projects, it sought ways to both activate its riverfront and generate tourist activity.

    An opportunity to do both came in the form of a land donation from the Southside Business Mens Club, providing the city with over a dozen acres of riverfront property right next to the Main Street Bridge. Local architect Taylor Hardwick, who would also design the citys new library building, formed a plan for a park on the property centered around a 200-foot-wide fountain.

    By March 1965, after $1.75 million in construction, what was dubbed the Dallas Thomas Park and Marina made its debut to the public. The Fountain of Friendship, as city brochures referred to it, featured colored lights and was capable of ejecting 17,000 gallons of water each minute to a height of up to 120 feet. It was engineered to reduce its stream based on wind speed to avoid splashing park visitors.

    Other features included circular covered pavilions, Midcentury Modern-inspired toadstool seating, and an open grass field that paralleled the fountain basin.

    The park was initially named in honor of city commissioner Dallas Thomas. His name was dropped from the park after being indicted as part of the citys mid-60s corruption scandals. Its now commonly referred to as either St. Johns River Park or Friendship Park.

    The park was a hit with tourists, who came to see what the city billed as the worlds tallest fountain.

    By the end of the 60s, Jacksonville Childrens Museum had popped up next to the parks pumphouse, providing another riverfront amenity for the city.

    In the 1980s, the city looked to further activate the riverfront. Inspired by San Antonios Riverwalk, work began on a similar project along the Southbank, and by 1985, the Southbank Riverwalk made its debut. Friendship Fountain was also refurbished that same year.

    The Riverwalk was a big hit, at least initially, but major changes were soon to come at the park.

    When the city began work on replacing the original Acosta Bridge, it had to demolish the existing Diamondhead Lobster House restaurant that stood in its way. The owners of the restaurant, which was a descendant of the original Lobster House that burned down in the 60s, were offered a significant portion of St. Johns River Parks property for development of a new restaurant called Harbormasters.

    The new restaurant was constructed and opened in the late 80s, effectively cutting the park surrounding Friendship Fountain in half. But the restaurants owners later defaulted on their loan, resulting in a $2.9 million loss for the city and the restaurants permanent closure in 1992. River City Brewing Company moved in a year later, but the damage to Hardwicks original vision for the park was permanent.

    By the turn of the century, the water pumps that powered Friendship Fountain were showing signs of irreversible damage. A rehabilitation project in 2001 managed to keep the fountain alive, for the most part, through Jacksonvilles stint as a Super Bowl host city. But shortly thereafter, two of the fountains three water pumps stopped working permanently. With replacement parts to repair the original pumps unavailable, the fountain limped along for the rest of the decade with just one functioning pump.

    In 2010, the city embarked on a $3.1 million project to replace the old pumps with new ones. The project, a collaboration between JBC Planning & Engineering, Flagg Design Studio, M.V. Cummings Engineers, TLC Engineering and Architecture, and AC General, also involved replacing the fountains electrical system, removing broken concrete in the park, and adding new seating and lighting.

    The park reopened in June 2011 and has remained unchanged since.

    However, big things are in store for the parks future. A $6 million renovation project will soon reimagine Friendship Fountain as a water cinema, with new pumps, lighting, and sound systems allowing for coordinated light-and-sound shows displayed onto the water rising from the fountains basin. Those renovations are expected to be completed sometime next year.

    The properties surrounding the park could soon look quite different as well. MOSH is in the process of raising funds for an expansion project that would add a new entranceway and caf facing the park. And a developer is eyeing the River City Brewing Company property for redevelopment as an apartment complex, which could potentially free up land to expand the park. If everything works out as planned, Friendship Fountain could once again become an innovative riverfront focal point something that the city desperately needs.

    Topgolf will have a spot in the Hall of Fame Village retail promenade – Canton Repository - October 10, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Edd Pritchard|The Repository

    CANTON Another sports-related anchorhas signed on to be part of the retail district planned forHall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls.

    Topgolf Entertainment Group plans to have a Topgolf Swing Suites be part of the retail promenade, according to an announcement by Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment, the company developing the village.

    It was the second major announcement from Hall of Fame Resort this week.The company also revealed that Shula's Restaurant Group will be part of the retail center.

    Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls is a development that will wrap around the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    The retail promenade is part of the second phase of construction. Other parts of the project estimated to cost nearly $300 million includea 180-room hotel, football-themed water park and office buildings. A third phase, also estimated at $300 million, could include residential development, along with more retail and attractions.

    Adding Shula's and Topgolfis part of an effort to create a destination entertainment center with the Pro Football Hall of Fame as the focal point, said Michael Crawford, president and chief executive officer of Hall of Fame Resort.

    The project is turning Canton into a preferred location for flagship brands, Crawford said in anewsrelease announcing Topgolf.

    Much like our company, Topgolf is all about generating excitement and bringing sports fans together through an immersive and interactive experience, Crawford said.

    Topgolf Swing Suite is one of several sports entertainment options offered by Topgolf Entertainment. Technology developed by Full SwingGolf allows guests to play golf and other simulated sports on massive television screens indoors.

    Swing Suite has locationsin 28 states and four countries. Guests can play a variety of games tied to golf, including rounds simulated at some of the world's leading courses. Zombie Dodgeball is a favorite game the company has developed, and there are games tied to baseball, hockey, soccer and most important football.

    Fans can play the virtual games or use the screens to watch a favorite sports teamin real time in a lounge seating setting, with hand-crafted cocktails and a full-service menu available.

    Topgolf has golfing sites in suburban Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati, but no Swing Suite locations.

    Ron Powers, president of Topgolf Swing Suite, said the company believes it is the "perfect complement" to plans for creating asportsdestination.

    We areveryproud to partner with the Hall of Fame Village andto have our virtual game technology entertainthe loyal fans visiting this prominent and exciting destination, Powers said in the release.

    Hall of Fame Resort officials hope construction for the 82,000-square-foot retail promenade block will begin this year. Plans are for the structure to sit between the Constellation Center for Excellence already under construction west of Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium and the hotel, which will be near Fulton Drive NW.

    The building will provide rooftop views of the stadium. Developers believe it will serve as an active hub in the village and a spot fans might visit before and after events.

    Puttshack Starts Construction in The Interlock, Is Expected To Open Spring 2021 – What Now Atlanta - October 8, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Puttshack, the upscale, tech-infused mini-golf experience, has started construction in The Interlock, a $450 million mixed-use development in West Midtown, according to a press release Thursday. Puttshack Atlanta is slated to be the first U.S. location for Puttshack and is expected to open in spring 2021. It will join the brands three London locations and will be followed by openings in Chicago and Miami later in the year.

    Puttshack will fill its almost 25,000 square feet with four modern and reimagined mini-golf courses where every themed hole is its own game. It will also feature a full bar and chef-created dining menu that will open to an expansive indoor-outdoor rooftop patio space. It is a new concept from former founding team members of TopGolf, which operates an Atlanta location not too far from The Interlock.

    Our successful launch, and re-openings, in the UK is proof of the power of coming together to play that is at the core of Puttshack, Joe Vrankin, CEO of Puttshack, said in the release. We are able to safely deliver fun for all our guests through our state-of-the-art safety measures, and we cant wait to bring this experience to Atlanta and so many more U.S. markets to come.

    Developed by S.J. Collins, The Interlock is a nine-acre community that is walkable from end-to-end. The community boasts 200,000 square feet of technology-focused office space, 105,000 square feet for retail and restaurant space, 349 apartments, and 18 townhomes as part of the Solis Interlock, 70 townhomes by Monte Hewett Homes, and a 161-room Bellyard boutique hotel.

    Puttshack is the first of many tenant spaces that will begin interior construction over the next 30-60 days as we turn spaces over, Jeff Garrison, partner at S.J. Collins Enterprises, said in the release. This is an exciting step forward in the progression of The Interlock and certainly a highly anticipated opening for this one-of-kind entertainment offering coming soon to West Midtown.

    The developments other elements include the public Beeline Crossing Park, one-acre rooftop with a modern private pool club, and a lounge with a retractable roof, and a 12,000-square-foot two-story restaurant and outdoor bar with a covered patio and an infinity-edge pool. The Interlock will also house a 50,000-square-foot incubator space by Georgia Technology Ventures and WeWorks 120,000-square-foot co-working space.
