Still sad about losing Santa Fe? Don’t be. The Varsity has signed up Looney’s Pub to occupy a location in its ground floor retail location. This is a prime location for a new bar/restaurant. As a frequent visitor to Baltimore watering holes in a previous life I can vouch for Looney’s as a great bar. Plus it was featured in the 2004 blockbuster movie Ladder 49 staring John Travolta. What more could you ask for?
This will be the first of 10 or so tenant announcements for the four student housing projects currently under construction on Route 1. Here is the approximate phasing (although stores won’t necessarily open at the same time the buildings are finished):
University View II (11,600 SF of Retail)
The Varsity (20,000 SF)
Starview Plaza (9,580 SF)
Mazza GrandMarc (10,000 SF)
