A new restaurant development is in the works for downtown Windsor.

Executive Director of the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Area Larry Horwitz says it will be a multi-million dollar world class facility near the corner of Park St. and Ouellette Ave. The lot is currently vacant because of a fire.

Horwitz says the developer is currently working with the city and the neighbours on site plan control. “It’s quite a modern, very New York design. There are concerns with some of the neighbours in terms of things that neighbours would be concerned about with this size of development going on downtown,” says Horwitz. “Hopefully we will bring the two parties together the neighbours and the developer and resolve these issues and hopefully the project will move forward.”

Horwitz believes this is a true sign of the revitalization of downtown.
