In the months since the Montrose Shopping Park Assn. remade itself in the wake of the Harvest Market revenue investigation, the quiet mom-and-pop district it oversees has been showing signs of growing pains.

Starbucks on Honolulu Avenue.
Film production companies can’t get enough of the quaint, tree-lined business street, and organizers of the weekly farmers market will start charging craft vendors more — a nod to the district’s street value, which until now appears to have gone untapped.
