Formerly the site of 3-Ds, this site has undergone a really slooooow renovation over the course of the last three+ years:
Today (May 18, 2013), I was able to look in at the inside, and see that carpentry tools are finally absent. Tables and chairs are in place and ready for use.
In addition, a website (complete with some branding) has recently been launched: http://www.islandczcafe.com/
Here's what this location used to look like:
Based on my view, this place looks like it will be the type of venue that serves alcoholic drinks.
However, in a sign that we may still have a while to wait, there has been no activity with the SLA or the Community Board that I am aware of.
.... navigating this process often takes several months.
Does anyone think this site is actually going to open prior to July 4th?
