My suggestion was to turn the property quickly with a Terrilli tenant, cooking up a romantic byline, Phoenix-from-the-ashes style. Then use the proceeds from that restaurant to help build the new Terrilli's in the old location.
Nobody listens to me, it's looking like a while longer before this will be open for business, in the meantime brand loyalty erodes, competition moves in, and employees find new employers they may chose to remain with.
And the old Popolo's space? Still empty. Still not generating rent. Tick, tock, tick, tock.
