WACO -- After only five months of business a downtown Waco restaurant is now closed.

But even with the recent closure of Garret's fine dining, business owners are still interested in setting up shop in the area.

Downtown developers said at least six owners are currently in the process of opening up new ventures for Waco residents.

"This summers been, actually a really good summer for us in downtown. I think we've seen about a dozen restaurants and other retail shops open up in the downtown area the last probably six months or so. We hope to see that continue. More shops and more restaurants will be opening up in the very near future," said Chris McGowan, director of Urban  Development.

Officials said urban housing development is picking up which will only increase momentum in the restoration of downtown Waco.
