Prime Gateway Spot Claimed by BW3

Posted By on Thu, Oct 22, 2015 at 1:48 PM

One of the most conspicuous – and conspicuously vacant – spots on Prospect Avenue has just been spoken for. The rambling 25,000-square-foot space at 724 Prospect Avenue, which has housed everything from Diamondback Brewery and Phil the Fire to R.J. Boland's, where every booth had its very own television, will become a Buffalo Wild Wings.

Richard Andrews, owner of BW3 spots in Lyndhurst, Bainbridge, Sandusky and Cleveland Heights, has inked a deal to open a new location downtown, a fact confirmed by Brad Kowit, partner in Kowit & Company Real Estate Group.

The restaurant and bar will occupy only the main level, a 6,500-square-foot space. 

BW3 started in 1982 with a single shop near the campus of The Ohio State University and has since grown to more than 900 locations. This particular location just so happens to be located down the block from Winking Lizard, which started in 1983 with a single shop in Bedford Heights and has since grown to more than 20 locations.

Of course, both of these spots are within walking distance to Quicken Loans Arena and The Jake.
No word yet on an ETA for opening day.
