The proposals are in for Scotty's, Chart House area
This is the latest on the RFP that went out recently for The Chart House, Scotty's Landing and the Grove Harbour Marina properties:
Five companies submitted proposals for Scotty's Landing and the marina property, including Landry's Inc., the Texas company that owns The Chart House, Vic and Anthony's, Harlow's and Bubba Gump's and recently bought Morton's. Landry's, also put in a proposal for the Chart House, property, the only bidder for that property, after the deadline was passed.
Others rumored to be part of the bidding are Terra Group, the company that bought the Grand Bay and one bid came in from another group who brought Arquitectonica, the local architects in. The actual names will come out in about 30 days.
These were the latest RFP requirements.
As for local bars. The new place opening called Mr. Frog's on Main Highway and The Goose, which opened not too long ago, were forced to pay for expensive liquor licenses due to a new law that forces them to do so when other bars are within 1000 feet of them. In the past, the law was simply that they had to sell 51% food and the rest liquor.
Many feel the two go hand-in-hand, that business is planned to shift to The Chart House/Scotty's area, leaving the Center Grove behind. If this is the case, Center Grove business owners need to get off their asses and protect their interests, otherwise all the locals and tourists will be wining and dining on the waterfront in a few years. The people who shaped the long drawn out Waterfront Master Plan, which was approved in 2008, are curious about this and not too thrilled with the changes that may take place.
There is always talk about an RFP for the Glass House in Peacock Park, but that is small potatoes compared to this huge undertaking at the other end of the waterfront. That RFP at the Glass House seems to be on the back burner indefinitely.
