There is a proposed zoning change for 4707 N. Broadway (picture attached) which would permit a night club to open in the basement space. The nightclub would occupy 7,600 square feet and permit occupancy of up to 300 patrons.
Update: A reader who attended the meeting wrote in:
"I also attended the meeting regarding 4707 N. Broadway building and its proposed tenants. Club Lucky is definitely the club that wants the basement space. The two north retail spots will be rented by restaurants. One is a burger place that's popular out West and the other restaurant wasn't described in detail. The southern most spaces have no tenants interested at this time. I assume due to the way the building comes to a triangular point there. Seems difficult to rent in my opinion. The purpose of the meeting was a vote to allow them to go from a zoning class B to a C-1-5 so the club can serve alcohol and charge a cover. There were several members of the community there who didn't seem keen on the idea. I had to leave early and didn't get the result of the vote, but I hope that all the tenants go into the space, as the developer needs the money and that corner could use life. He's losing much money on the project as it's a labor of love. I'm glad he restored it. It's an interesting building."
