TAMPA — The Colonnade may have shut down a month ago, but the chairs are still stacked on tables inside. That changes this week.
A sign in front of the building says a public auction will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Restaurant equipment, furniture, glassware, bar taps, artwork and even stained-glass windows are among the items posted online by Tampa Liquidation Center, which has been commissioned to clear out the 80-plus-year-old restaurant.
The waterfront property at 3401 Bayshore Blvd. was sold to Sarasota-based Ascentia and Batson-Cook Development Co. for $6.2 million. The developers plan to build at least 80 luxury condominiums on the site.
