Bowling, Bocce, Booze Headed to the Kirby Collection

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. of leased space makes up around half of the total retail space available, and is split across both retail floors of the complex (shown in the foreground above, with a row of trees peeking down at Kirby Dr. from the edge of the roof). Pinstripes will take over 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 footprint of those 7 townhomes planned within in the development (up top along Lake St., between the lobbies of the office midrise and the residential tower).

The 26,600-sq.-ft. spot on the 2nd floor will belong to Pinstripes as well:

Parking will continue up a few more floors past the retail levels; here’s a shotlooking over from across the intersection of Lake and Colquitt toward Downtown:
