The other piece that I learned is that the man who owns Surf Club and some other bars owns and is working on 1904 Chapel Hill Rd (looks like an old auto garage).
It will be interesting to see what his plans are for that.
@Steve - have you heard any other rumors? To me, this area could be really interesting because Scrap Exchange owns the north half of the mall. Their plans mixed with some high-end plans might create an interesting mix (as opposed to a completely bulldozed and shiny new development across the whole area).

Ah, no rumors. That's just pure speculation by me, but the proliferation of high end townhomes near the city center makes me think we'll see some more here. Most developers aren't exactly daring or creative, and they like to copy what already works. I'd almost be willing to bet that something like Elliot Square pops up near Lakewood in the next 3 years.
