A week ago or so, plywood painted green went up around 29-12 23rd Avenue, the location for the new bar/restaurant from the folks that brought us Sweet Afton. A diagram of the new front of the building is up, too. Here’s what it looked like:

The newly designed front of the building will not affect the upstairs, which will retain its brick and terra cotta exterior. The front of the establishment will have four bi-folding windows, and extended windowsill, wood-clad exterior and a few other design elements. There will also be an exterior entrance to the rear yard. Rear yard = outdoor seating? We’d love it.

Very, very interesting. We hope to learn the place’s name soon, too. And of course, the food and drink offerings! We’ll keep you updated.

I think the floor plan is the original lay out, if you look at the approval stamp, it reads 1975.

Good eye, Bill! That document is dated 5/20/14 in the Department of Buildings site, hence the confusion. The details of the exterior are current. I’ll try to get a photo of the diagram soon.
