After nearly 50 years of business, the fate of Anthony's Pier 4 is now "an imminent closing," says one of the site's developers, who according to the Herald will be turning the 1,000 seat restaurant into 369 luxury apartments. However the restaurant will keep serving as long as it can and will eventually move into "a much smaller location" inside of a hotel that will be built following construction of the apartment building. So it's going away, then coming back. Some numbers:
· 1963: The year Anthony's opened.
· $28 million: The annual income at Anthony's in the '70s.
· $8 million: The amount of tax revenue the new space is expected to generate.
· 13: The years of negotiating it took for this to happen.
