There's still no official word on the future tenants of the retail space at The Paramount, but a tipster tells us local celeb chef John Besh will open a bakery in the South Market District structure. The South Market District team did say the 22,000-square-feet of retail "will include an eclectic mix of food and beverage tenants," and last month said they would announce the tenants "in a couple weeks," so we shall see. In the meantime, construction is chugging right along at the mixed-use building, which will also be home to 209 apartments. As always, stay tuned and feel free to hit up the tipline with all intel.
