Couple things I noticed on the permitting website today:

 

Something called "The Gypsy Poet" marked as a remodel on 2404 Austin (the old Core Church)

Looks like it's going to be an artsy cafe.

I spoke to the people at the Dog Boarding/Training facility across the street and their realtor confirmed that a pizza place is going in at 2404 Austin.

 

This was on the Gypsy Poet Instagram story this morning:

Slow moving, but progress being made.

Church becomes a bar.  Just as the Christ Scientist church downtown became an EDM Club.  Soon, when the Catholic Church completes it's auto-annihilation, the Co-Cathedral will serve as a most awesome disco.

And one of the Baptist megachurches could transition to a sex robot brothel of the kind that recently sent our municipal elected officials into a pre-emptive spasm of pearl-clutching. On second thought, Lakewood would work just as well, and have the added benefit of returning the building to something a bit closer to its roots as the Summit.

Another Instagram story photo, with this one showing 3 different types of pizzas. I took a screenshot, but too lazy to post right now. Let me know if you're interested and I will post later.

They recently installed a grease trap and appear to be working on finish out of the interior now. Supposedly going to be open by the end of March.

@corbs315, click the instagram link in my post above. The last clip shows what appears to be a very large AC unit going onto the building.

 

My guess is they're delayed, not gone.

Lots of activity on their instagram account lately, including confirmation of the previously noted soft opening on June 7th, 5pm-10pm!

Good and unique pies. Will be curious to see what they do pricing-wise - right now they are more expensive than, say, Dolce Vita. Will be interesting to see if they can carve themselves a niche. Pizza is a hard business to figure out I'd think.

Ordered a pizza (to go) last weekend and was very satisfied with both the quality and price.
