Brookland’s Finest Finished Another Phase Of Construction., a set on Flickr.
A few days ago I had the chance to visit the construction site of the Brookland’s Finest Restaurant Project. It looks like they are really moving along at a good pace. The spaces are defined and it is easy to envision the seating and bar area, the restrooms, storage and the kitchen, which will have an open concept.
The owner and builder Scott Evans (Positive Space) was able to expose some interesting brick walls and to salvage a great skylight. He also incorporated salvaged wooden accent beams along the ceiling, and very cool windows from an old warehouse were installed on the 12th Street side of the building. Since the last time we caught up with Scott, they have also put in a new roof and a lot of the fundamental needs like a grease trap, plumbing, air conditioning and electricity. This week they started putting in drywall, so it looks like things are starting to come together.
The deadline for the ABRA decision on the liquor license application for Brookland’s Finest is quickly approaching. The hearing, which we reported about here, was on August 14. The ABRA Board should make a decision within 60 days after the hearing date. Once we learn about any further information regarding the ABRA process, we will post it right here.
