This is a call-back to a posting several months ago (5/18/06, to be exact): New Cineplex Slated for the Boulevard? — see the post to get up-to-speed
This has been long in the works, obviously, and is still in the early stages. As Style Weekly pointed out in this week’s edition ("Merger Won’t Slow Boulevard Complex"), the architectural plans are still being drawn up.
Some interesting facts from the article:
- the new cineplex will be called Movieland
- the redevelopment project is being called Boulevard Square
- there will be 13,000+ sq ft of retail and restaurants in the development
- the area where Bowtie originally planned for a cineplex is called Jefferson Square (between Main, Cary, 3rd & 4th Streets)
