640 Columbia Road Improved
I noticed over the weekend that the one story empty former market at 640 Columbia Road has received major improvements. I’m very curious about what might come to this location or what the owner might have in mind. This is mostly because the building is zoned R4, which is residential. While it was obviously once a neighborhood market, I don’t know if that use is still possible without a zoning variance.
Looking at the scope of work listed in the building permit provides the following information:
Install restroom, kitchenette, interior partitions. Patch and repair interior ceiling and walls. Repair and or replace inkind existing front and rear windows and doors. No increase in size of building.
Regardless of what ultimately moves into the building, there is no doubt that its improvement benefits the neighborhood. Below is what it looked like in 2004.Development comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
