Rolling-sphere-themed restaurant and entertainment chain Pinstripes has just leased up some space in the under-construction Kirby Collection (and hey — there might even be some bocce players nearby still looking for a new court!) That’s the first confirmed tenant for the project, which Thor Equities wants to open by the end of next year; the 33,600 sq. ft. ofÂ leased space makes upÂ aroundÂ half of the total retail spaceÂ available, and isÂ split acrossÂ both retail floors of the complex (shown in the foreground above, with aÂ row of trees peeking downÂ atÂ Kirby Dr. from the edge of the roof).Â Pinstripes will take overÂ a 7,260-sq.-ft. subdivision of first floor space, out of the segment labeled 23,900 in the ground floor plan below:
That plan also shows the footprintÂ of those 7 townhomes planned withinÂ in the development (up top along Lake St., between the lobbies of the office midrise and the residential tower).
The 26,600-sq.-ft. spotÂ on the 2nd floor will belong to Pinstripes as well:
Parking will continue upÂ a few more floors past the retail levels; here’s a shotlooking over from acrossÂ the intersectionÂ of Lake and Colquitt toward Downtown:
