Universal Hub reports that the Zoning Board of Appeal (ZBA) approved plans to replace what is now a vacant lot L and Broadway with a four-story building, with 9 apartments and retail on the ground level.
Originally, the developer, Joey Acari (who also owns The Broadway and the Playwright), wanted to put another bar/restaurant in that spot, but there was lots of community pushback.(You can check out the recording of a community meeting that took place back in 2021 about this project here. ) So now the ground level will be some sort of retail business – just not a bar/restaurant.
This proposal received support from City Councilors Ed Flynn, Michael Flaherty and Erin Murphy plus US Rep. Stephen Lynch and the City Point Neighborhood Association.
