Last spring, we told you about Midwood Development‘s plans to demolish the three buildings on the southeastern corner of 15th & Walnut and replace them with a contemporary building. We’d heard rumblings that tenants would include the gross but extremely popular Cheesecake Factory, a Sovereign Bank branch, and Japanese clothing retailer Uniqlo. Within a few months, we’d learned that Uniqlo was out, and now it seems that the bank is out of the picture as well. According to Inga Saffron, suburban tourists can breathe a sigh of relief, as it appears that the Cheesecake Factory will be a go.

As you’ve probably noticed, not much has changed at this corner in the months since, with the exception of the recent closing of the Rite Aid that had previously been located two doors off the corner. Now, we’re hearing that we could be seeing action here sooner rather than later.
Change is comin'
More specifically, we’re hearing that the project will be moving forward at some point this year, with the corner building and the two buildings next door replaced by a four story, new construction, all commercial structure. And we’ve heard rumblings about a couple of tenants, too.
Least excitingly, one tenant on the first floor will likely be Sovereign Bank, which will have the corner retail…
