Status Update: Leonidas is Still Coming
It was back in November that we first mentioned the new Leonidas store coming to the former Bank of America location at 59 East Chicago Avenue. Since then, little has changed with the storefront. In spite of the "coming soon" promise, it didn't manage to open in time for the Christmas shopping season. But there are signs that things are still progressing.
Recently a permit was posted showing the Leonidas is still moving forward with the project. It was issued January 7, 2010. Also, there is a promotional placard for a Red House, a company that specializes in renovations.
Presumably, Red House is doing the interior design. But we'd be more impressed if it let us see the work being done inside, or at least posted renderings of what the finished product should look like. The Leonidas project isn't even mentioned on the company's web site.
