  1. Someone posted on chowhound that Gaucho’s has closed. Not shocking and a great space that hopefully will be used to it’s full potential.

  2. The sign for The Edge is up including a big Budweiser sign covering the top window. That spot just never will learn I guess.

    The paper is down from the gelato fiasco. Not done but no you can look in and see progress.

    Not food but Urban Outfitters opens on the 8th or december and is the best looking retail space Portland has ever had since before I was born.

    Daily Sun, Forecaster and Maine biz all reported that the gigantic million square foot project in Bayside is on track and looking to break ground by April. Huge mix of retail/housing/hotel/office towers so we’ll be looking at at least 10-20 new restaurants/eateries in the future out of there.

    1. Nick, thanks for all the info. The number of restaurants under construction has certainly tapered off quite a bit this year (20+ to now only 7). It’s good to know that the Bayside development provides a new frontier to get that engine moving again.
