Dave & Buster’s, 3 new shops under development at The Block Northway in Ross
One of the area’s most popular sports bars, restaurant and video arcade combinations is expected to open in the North Hills by early next year.
Officials for The Block Northway in Ross Township say construction permits for a Dave & Buster’s were approved several weeks ago and that work has already begun.
“There’s been a lot of interest about this project so it’s very exciting to be able to confirm that it’s on the way,” said Jamie Pavlot, a spokeswoman for The Block Northway.
The other local Dave & Buster’s location is in the Waterfront shopping center in Homestead.
Pavlot said Dave & Buster’s will occupy a 40,000-square-foot space on the upper level of The Block Northway’s southwest side, which is on the left facing the mall from McKnight Road.
Work is expected to be completed sometime in February, she said. Township commissioners approved a liquor license transfer for the bar in May.
Other businesses under development for The Block Northway include:
• Blaze Pizza: The Pasadena, Calif.-based Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza — a national fast-casual dining restaurant featuring a made-to-order approach.
• Le Creuset: A premium French cookware manufacturer best known for its enameled cast-iron cookware.
• David’s Bridal: The national clothier specializing in wedding gowns, prom dresses and other formal wear is moving from its current location along McKnight Road near the entrance to the Ross Park Mall.
The new additions to The Block Northway join a list of national retailers that have opened in the mall since Akron, Ohio-based LRC Realty began transforming the former Northway Mall into an upscale retail center.
The additions include Nordstrom Rack, Saks Fifth Avenue’s Off 5th, The Container Store, J.Crew, DSW shoes, Jason’s Deli, Piada Italian Street Foods, CoreLife Eatery and Wahlburgers.
