At the September 2019 meeting, the Rio Nuevo Board advanced a project to help make Rocco’s Chicago Style Pizzeria one of the first new tenants of the Sunshine Mile redevelopment project along East Broadway.

The restaurant will move about a half-block west to the Solot Plaza into a 6,000SF building at 2635 E. Broadway, triple the size of its current location at 2707 E. Broadway.

The new location, designed by Intertech Architectural Interiors, will feature a large group party area and a designated bar area. Pizzeria owner Rocco DiGrazia said his business has rapidly grown after a sign on the restaurant’s marquee went viral and an appearance on the Food Network show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.

The Board unanimously agreed to proceed with the financing of the project, which includes a $500,000 loan for renovations, a lease of up to 25 years, and a rebate on site-specific sales tax.
