San Marco Plaza: Its day has come

Plans for San Marco Plaza were first announced in early 2004.

 "Three restaurants -- two of them Italian -- and two art galleries, along with other shops and a movie house have all expressed interest in joining San Marco Plaza. The movie house ... would feature more artsy and foreign films, " according to Herald archives.

Also planned was a move of the Golden Apple Dinner Theater into San Marco Plaza.

Those initial plans either failed to materialize or didn't work out.

Things were complicated by a meltdown of the economy and some of the investors going into default.

It's been a tough slog, but there is reason for optimism among the business survivors at San Marco Plaza, and  several new businesses that are set to join the mix.
