Expect an empty field, at least two new restaurants and maybe a new bar in the Dallas gayborhood along Cedar Springs Road in 2016.
Kroger may face some stiff competition when a new Central Market opens a few blocks away, but even though some of the land has been cleared, a timeline for the new store is still in question.
An empty field, where the first gay-owned business on Cedar Springs Road once stood, remains fenced. Warwick Melrose Hotel bought the land several years ago when the owners of The Bronx, a restaurant that opened in the 1975, retired.
The building that once housed The Bronx was razed to accommodate plans to build a pool and other gym facilities for the hotel, as well as a large ballroom. Various plans developed over the last couple of years, that originally included a parking garage, are on hold, according to a source at the hotel who asked not to be identified.
