Opening is targeted for sometime in May.
Bar Louie, an upscale bar and restaurant, announced earlier this year it plans to open in April at Velocity in April.
And, Barry’s Bootcamp, a fitness franchise based in Los Angeles, has just started construction of a 4,200 square foot space at Velocity with plans to open in late May or early June, according to its corporate office.
On 12th Avenue South in the Gulch, Lucchese Boot Company has targeted an early June at The Wine Loft’s former location on 12th Avenue South in the Gulch.
Work has started on the new Lucchese store with a permit issued earlier in March for the company’s third freestanding building according to director of retail Jay Hamby.
Lucchese sells its products in retail stores in the area, but the company’s only other freestanding stores are in Santa Fe, N.M., and San Antonio, Tex.
The Wine Loft was in business until it closed in 2011. Lucchese is leasing the space, Hamby said.
