Big Bowl and Da Lobster

Does anyone know what is replacing Big Bowl, Da Lobster and maybe the Corner Bakery? I've heard it will be a two-story restaurant/retail or it might be a high rise condominium. Seems strange that there are reports of the development but not what will be developed.

    Thanks a lot Gfw. The article is still vague (and so are the developers) on the type of building and its use. Rumors start when there is a vacuum of information. Why the secrecy?

    Disgusting..........just what we need in the area, another glass block of ugly condos. How about leaving the area the way it is, I like the small town atmosphere of small cafes and stores. And just how many rich people will buy these condos, isn't this the see through city, look out one condo into another and another and see the lake? I eat at the corner bakery every week, and use the Big Bowl for late night dinners......what is wrong with these people in wanting another condo building. Wonder how long before a condo will sit on the Tavern on Rush? If people want customers to live in the area and buy the products of what the stores have to offer along with the cafes, then you need to make the area appealing and a place where people will come and stay. If Whisper's go the way of developers, then where can we go to get coffee and enjoy the summer and people watch.
