TROY -- A pair of restaurant-related proposals has received backing from the City Planning Commission. And, a third involving a former food store also got a thumbs-up.
• As I reported earlier, Troy Kitchen owner Cory Nelson had applied for permission to add a partition wall and a bar inside the restaurant incubator facility at 77 Congress Street. His application also proposed "3 new vendors," apparently referring to expanding the number of vendors leasing space rather than simply replacing other vendors. He also proposes to remain open until 2 a.m. The proposal was conditionally approved providing the existing vendor limit language from prior Commission approval is removed.
reported earlier, owner Dave Gardell has been seeking city approval to break through a wall to expand his kitchen facilities into the first floor of the adjoining building at 106 3rd Street. The Planning Commission OKd the proposal on condition the parcels be merged.
• Unanimous approval was given to a site plan submitted by Neil Pelone Architecture of Troy for renovations to the former Troy Pork Store two-story building at 158 4th Street. Click here for my original story.
