Looked inside an open door on the ground floor of the Palladium dorm on 14th street and there were about 15 workers inside with a lot of electrical equipment being carted in. Playing dumb I asked one of the workers what was going in the space and he immediately said "Trader Joe's". I asked him when it would open and he shrugged his shoulders.
I'm no construction expert, but the amount of activity going on combined with the current state of the ground floor and I'm hopeful for a late Jan or Feb. opening. FYI, the ground space I viewed work being done on is just east of the main entrance to the dorm.
