Say goodbye to that image of a boutique hotel in Highland Park Village. Also, give up the dream of underground parking at the oft-congested luxe center. Highland Park Village owner Ray Washburne said yesterday that the historic shopping center will not be undergoing significant changes—to the dismay of many a Park Cities rumormongerer.
According to the DMN, Washburne told the Highland Park Town Council that he and fellow co-owners are more focused on making smaller changes, like swapping out a few tenants and adding landscaping. Soon to be announced: A clothing retailer that will replace Village Kitchen. Other changes to the center include closing the popular restaurant Patrizio and the Tom Thumb grocery store. Also a gourmet grocer (we're extrapolating, but, The Fresh Market??) is scheduled to go into a renovated space on Preston Road.
