That's great!  In 5 months they went from having "no plans" to evict two major anchor tenants, to evicting them,.

"Evicted" or convinced to not renew their leases?

I worked for a restaurant in Utica Square that was "convinced" not to renew its lease. The method at the time was to quadruple the lease which was pretty convincing.

It is rough for the community when property owners do this, especially with popular places doing pretty well. It is bad for small businesses and their customers.

That was supposedly the reason White Owl closed. White Owl was a neat place with a lot of fans. It was a shame they closed it and remodeled what was a perfectly good space (and took out the pool table). The Pint is fine but I preferred White Owl. The Pint has ok food and about the same atmosphere but looks worse (just tacky selection of colors/booths/etc - looks like a chain restaurant mixed in with what was a more organic-looking hole-in-the-wall that White Owl was).

You're right. No one was evicted, I was just trying to convey that they were fairly rapidly shut down and moved out. As I understand it, the property company owned Ms. Jackson's and Petty's lease simply wasn't renewed. The point I was trying to make was that they went from "no plans" to remove either of those tenants to them both being gone and moving on very rapidly.

I think you are being overly-kind to The Pint.  We were very “meh” on it.

Then what was the reason? There were discussions on here and by other people who mentioned increased rent.

I'm a solid Meh minus. White owl was good pub food, friendly staff. The Pint is not.

I thought the White Owl story was a divorce between the owners.  Or was that another place?
