Normal decision has no effect on Champaign project
CHAMPAIGN – Champaign developer Cody Sokolski said Normal's termination of a redevelopment agreement with his company has "no bearing whatsoever" on the M2 on Neil project in downtown Champaign.
Why do we care?
BankChampaign has already moved into space on the first floor, but the long-touted Destihl Restaurant & Brew Works, which would occupy the anchor space at Church and Neil streets, has yet to open.
"Destihl has already started construction," said Sokolski, the chief executive officer of One Main Development. "They wanted to get it done in three to four months."
Three to four months... puts it around January-February. Last year showed promise for Destihl opening, since they had a booth (possibly the most popular one) at the Urbana Beer and Chili thing. however, they were absent from this year.
