It is indeed. I got this map from West Campus Trust. Not sure if there's a new one with Gramercy on it. I might have to fire up photoshop ?

Three more retailers set to go into University District.

-Village Ice Cream
The Alley (Bubble Tea)
-Shopper's Drug Mart

I don't know which buildings.
Story here (though notably, not much more in the way of details):

Plus a neat flyover video in the story too.

I have to admit. I'm pretty sad that Analog no longer appears to be opening a location in U/D. The NW is in dire need of some good coffee.

Village Ice Cream and The Alley are moving into Block 23. Shoppers is slated to move into Argyle, so it'll be a while yet. There's also a Staples coming to U/D slated for 2022.

I imagine it's just a matter of time before a coffee joint signs up somewhere in U/D.
I also imagine that the West Campus Dev. Trust is being pretty selective about *which* coffee shop they opt to go with. Remember that they are the curators of all of the retail in the UD and probably want a well known local brand (i.e. If it's not Analog it will be something similar).

That’s good to hear, but I hope they aren’t too selective. It’s nice to have great cafe brands, but sometimes it’s nice to let the market dictate to some degree.

I might catch some flak for saying this, but I would be okay with a non drive thru Tim Hortons.
