Next step scheduled in Troy for brew pub, sports bar projects

Heated debate over a plan by Bow Tie Cinema to construct a boxy building containing 11 movie screens in the hole on Troy's Monument Square that once was home to city hall has gotten the lion's share of publicity since it is on the city Planning Commission's public hearing agenda next week.

However, at least two other lower key entertainment-related projects are scheduled to be heard that same evening. The two, which I have reported on earlier as they make their way through the bureaucratic process, are:
• PC2017 - 0039:  Site plan review of a proposal to create a brew pub in a former church property at 560 Congress Street near the intersection with Pawling Avenue in the Mount Ida neighborhood. The applicant is Louis Emory of Troy. (Incidentally, the Zoning Board of Appeals approved at its July meeting Emory's request for a  variance for 3, 7 and 9 Brunswick Road to use as a parking area for the proposed brewpub. That swath of land is on the opposite bank of the Poestenkill from the brewpub site.) 

• PC2017 - 0048: Site plan review of a proposal to create a sports bar in the onetime Badass Burritos venue at 443 Fifth Avenue, in the Lansingburgh neghborhood. The applicant is Jeff Jackson of Galway (or, as city officials insist on  misspelling it in public documents, Gallway), Saratoga County.
The hearing, which has a total of 15 projects on the agenda, is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 26, in the City Council Chambers, 5th Floor, City Hall, 433 River Street.
