And after years of rehabbing a set of aging buildings once headed for demolition, few are more satisfied than developer David Tart. “With this project, I felt like every day we had a significant challenge with buildings that were here 100 years ago,” Tart said, recalling a fix that came after one of the existing buildings near South Market Street which had no prior foundation. “It was hard to ever relax and keep a very close eye on making sure the right decisions were made to preserve the buildings, but also to create the unique guest experience we’re trying to do here,” he said.
