Update: Three Projects Near Prohibition Taproom Are Moving Along Monday, May 6
If you've never visited Prohibition Taproom at 13th & Buttonwood, you're surely missing out on a great neighborhood pub experience. And if you wish to visit this gem of a bar in the coming weeks or months, you'll surely notice that there are at least three construction projects taking place in very close vicinity, all of which are slowly but surely moving along.
First, we check in on the long-blighted 1231-35 Buttonwood St., which we last visited about two months ago. At that time, we noticed some workers on the site, but also recognized that the properties were sporting numerous violations. Over the past couple of months, it appears that work has continued, and some (but not all) of the violations have been cleared up. One of the buildings has a partially rebuilt facade, which we wouldn't be surprised to see moving forward at the other properties. Clearly, there's still much work to be done here.
Meanwhile, immediately next door, a ten-unit project with underground parking has been fully framed out since we last checked in. Harman Deutsch did the design work for this project, which replaces a long-vacant lot. Check out the current state and the rendering of the future:
Meanwhile, to the south of Prohibition, a project we first told you about last summer is shaping up on the corner of 13th & Hamilton. This one involves the addition of two stories on top of an existing building to create twelve condo units. It's certainly taken its sweet time coming together, but it looks like another winning addition to this growing area.
Pretty soon, it's gonna be just a little bit tougher to get a seat to knock down a cold one at Prohibition. Best to get there sooner rather than later, folks.
