Public Market Center

Not sure if anyone had posted this previously but we were on our way to a birthday party this afternoon when we passed by. At first, I thought it might be one of those places where food trucks gather but I found this after doing a search.



The video says 2016, so I guess it is behind schedule but with Punto 115 packing people in most nights, the theater putting somthing on most weekends, and some of the government buildings already in business (Regsitrar Civil, for example), the city finally appears to be moving its center. This market looks pretty cool on the drive by.

They've been working on that off and on (mostly off) for about three years.
Last time passing by it appeared that one of the "cubes" was actually open.
I hope it works out.

It did look like it was ready to do something but wasn't. With that location and the concept, I would think it would work.

IMO, the Public Market Center will be just about as successful as the new trash sorting/recycling program

The thing is that it kind of has the same potential vibe as Punto 115. The same developers, too. Punto 115 does some pretty good business.

Does it do good business? I've been over there twice, and both times the place was dead, and I felt surprised it was even open... both times were weekdays around 7pm though, if that matters.

At night, the bars are usually pretty pretty full. Many of my friends and students go there instead of 5th. I am not sure how Piola does.

It does great business.
I really like Drinkeria by Henry Miller.
The Don Sirloin is super fancy and Piola has opened there.
A brilliant move on the developer's part.
Most build spec buildings around here and they remain empty for years.

With newer neighborhoods like Los Olivos, Real Ibiza and older ones like La Toscana and Santa Fe all close, there is more money around. As the city moves more of its functions over this way, those buildings may start to fill up.
