Sounds like Wayside Food Park is shut down.

That did not last long at all. Imagine it was thinly capitalized.

Was this the one across from campus behind Northgate? I only went once. Parking is terrible and half the vendors weren't even open.

Not surprised. Been there for lunch a couple of times and every time, all but three trucks were closed. Many of the reviews I've seen about it have mention similar issues - no matter when they went, it was always jut a couple of trucks open.

Guessing they bet it all on the dinner/bar crowd, but even then, the trucks were kind of meh overall so doubt it had much appeal. I saw the Time for Thai truck left back in December, and wondered if that was a sign it was failing.

We tried to go one Sunday after church so around 12:30 and nobody was open. Hard to be successful when you aren't open during the posted hours.

When the city hid the park behind fences that was the kiss of death. Out of site, out of mind.

We didn't need it anyway. It was very Austin-like.

Once the Cafe Eccell parking lot was gone that side of Northgate was doomed

As many have said Wayside was a failure of it's own demise. It CONSTANTLY wasn't open during posted hours and advertising was at best minimal. After the third time I tried to go I gave up completely.

I hope it succeeds but call me skeptical ...

I fondly remember the tremendous success of the Wolf Pen Creek Riverwalk project.

So College Station and Bryan are going to create midtown areas?

Yes. Seems like one would rebrand but what do I know.

That area of Bryan has always been referred to as midtown. Bryan also has a downtown. CS has neither but they keep trying to artificially create a downtown and now a midtown.

I think the new planned CS development has a chance to be good, but that area doesn't strike me as the geographic midtown of CS.

In Bryan's case, it's more of a public works project in an attempt to lure private sector development dollars to the area. I wasn't a big fan of the public dollars spent on downtown Bryan but that area is getting better all the time. Maybe the midtown effort will turn out good as well, but it's going to take a long, long time.

Midtowns exist all over the world. No need to rebrand

It seems to me that the College Station Midtown is more of what we already have and I think it will dilute other similar developments that are trying to be great. For example:
Lake walk/Atlas
Wolf Pen Creek
Veterans Park
Century Square
The new Bryan Midtown Park

Sure. CoCS will wait until everything is built out. Then they will submit a proposal, and get the project going 10 years later.

So a 3rd caprock ER? Have they opened the urgent care?

I just figured they'd do "incremental improvements" every 18 months so that the east side stays under construction like the west side did for the next 10 years.

Wife and I went once for lunch last summer.

Literally no one was open, so we left and never wanted to go back.

New Development was released today, a bit more than usual but nothing too groundbreaking.

- Site plan released of building planned to replace Silk Stocking
- An expansion to a building at Rock Prairie and Edelweiss
- Expansion to Crossroads Storage further down Wellborn Road

Nothing on Jones Crossing, Holleman/2818, or whatever they're clearing out at next to Prosperity Bank at Wellborn Road.

I don't recall ever bearing what is going in just north of the Mercedes dealership? I originally thought Coopers was going in at Sebesta Rd, but now see sinage it's going to be at Pavilion. Is it yet another dealership?
