Columbia 2.0 under construction

  Everywhere you look these days it seems as if the places we have know since the early days of Columbia are being remade.

Wilde Lake Village Center, Columbia's oldest, is about to get its biggest makeover to a combined commercial/housing area.

The Columbia Mall renovation begins with the tearing down of the LL Bean store.  The new open courtyard plaza's first phase is scheduled for a November 2013 opening.  Just in time for holiday shopping.

Not much remains of the LL Bean store.

Work is well underway on the old Rouse Building with a scheduled Fall 014 of the Whole Foods store and athletic club

The pictures above and below show the open areas along Brokenland Parkway will be lined with office buildings.

So we finally learn what new restaurant is coming to the Lakefront where the Red Pearl was.  While the exact name and menu hasn't been released the Forman Wolf restaurants are definitely upscale dining now only found in our area in Baltimore and DC.  Looking at the menus of their Baltimore restaurants you should plan on spending around $100 for a meal for 2 with wine. This restaurant will make Clydes look like a bargain.
