A request for final site plan approval was submitted for 908 Meridian Street & 206 Vaughn Street. The property is zoned SP and within the Woodbine Community Organization Historic Landmark District Overlay. Once approved, the 0.85 acres site would permit a brewery and outdoor seating. The request was filed by Fulmer-Lucas, on behalf of Towery Development, the owner.

The plan proposes adding two ancillary structures on the property for a Brewery and Food & Beverage (F&B) operations. It also includes lots of outdoor open seating and back of house operation areas. The Brewery is located at the rear of the property; approximately where the Number 1 is in the photo above. The Food & beverage building fronts Meridian Street; approximately where the number 2 is in the photo above.
