I just figured out that the The Broadway Corridor Project is actually tomorrow. Â I’d earlier announced it was today, but after reading an article in the Journal Gazette today, realized it is tomorrow. Â This may work to my benefit as I was unable to attend anything this morning. Â My apologies to all.Â
So, once again with feeling and this time accuracy, the meeting is tomorrow at Noon at Catablu on Broadway!
Broadway businesses merging, updating
ByÂ Becky Manley
As business and property owners prepare for a Thursday meeting to discuss the future of the Broadway corridor, two landmark restaurants have struck a merger deal, and an international grocery store and microbrewery have improvement plans on the table.
[…] About 4 p.m. Tuesday, owners of Chappell’s Seafood Market South, 2723 Broadway, and Hartley’s, 4301 Fairfield Ave., reached a merger agreement, according to Gary Chappell.
[…] Eventually, the merger will take the best of both restaurants and put them into one at the Broadway location, Chappell said.
[…]Â Chappell’s isn’t the only Broadway business to see change coming. Jerry Rongos, co-owner of George’s International Grocery, said he plans to improve the store’s facade at the shopping plaza at Broadway and Taylor Street.
Rongos said he would also like to eventually expand the store but that initial work will focus on beautifying the landscape and facade.
Mad Anthony Brewing Co. at Taylor and Broadway plans to add an outdoor seating area and facade work, according to Jeff Neels, co-owner and partner.
The patio will have seating for about 30 people. Representatives from the three businesses all said they were energized by word of the Broadway corridor improvements, as well as the potential business boost from the Harrison Square development.
On Thursday, property owners and tenants along Broadway will meet to talk about transforming the corridor into an eclectic, diverse, unified village.
