Back in 2010 plans were for The Independent, a new coffee house bar and lounge. Then in 2012 I heard some scuttlebutt that Richard Sandoval was considering opening a space here. Turns out he’ll be opening Toro Toro downtown. Now the space is up for lease again. I hear the Hilton brothers (Marvin, Brixton, Chez Billy etc.) may open something on the 2nd floor and somebody new may take over the first floor. But at the moment no new tenant has been found yet. Stay tuned.
