The Register is reporting that the Funky Pickle, the little deli in the 7th and Grand parking garage closed down at the end of the year. Too bad, this was actually a decent little spot.

Register now says a new deli will open October 3. Keller's will serve breakfast and lunch items. Keller is a bread maker in Des Moines.

I have to assume it is a different gym than F/X which is located just a few blocks away . Maybe it will be the type that offers training for boxing and/or MMA? Just guessing

DMRyan wrote:Lots of little things happening in the Western Gateway currently. A few of the projects are shown below, but of note is the demolition of the Howard Martin Auto Body shop just to the west of Wellmark. Looking at property records, Wellmark is purchasing up properties to the west of their new headquarters building. I'm not going to go out on a limb and speculate about an expansion, but I think they're trying to clean up their neighborhood and get control over properties that could be accumulated for a future development parcel. I've heard they intend to build an interim green space on all of these vacant properties, once the buildings are demo'd. The old Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Iowa Health Foundation Buildings may be next.

What do you guys think about this little mini-controversy?

Also, on a brighter note, it appears that the Surf Shack space is available for rent.
