A longtime face of the Southie restaurant world shut down last April after the owners decided they would knock down the restaurant to make way for an apartment development. Now, it seems that development will have a designated restaurant space, Boston Restaurant Talk reported.
According to a City of Boston licensing board page, the people behind the Cornerstone Pub — Thomas Flaherty Sr. and his son, Tommy — are looking to transfer the all-alcohol license from the pub to the new company behind the development project, 16 West Broadway Cornerstone, LLC.
The Flahertys previously proposed a plan to the Boston Redevelopment Authority for a condo building with 47-plus residential units and commercial space, and more details have recently been shared. The building will in fact have 49 units and a restaurant on the ground floor at 14 West Broadway.
The building will apparently have a roof deck and lounge, garage parking, a 24-hour concierge, and a fitness center, according to Banker & Tradesman. The restaurant will span 6,000 square feet and will seat 350. The type of restaurant, its cuisine, and any other details are not yet known, but any updates will be posted when they are made available.
