I also saw that sign on the Grove Plaza storefront now only says Grove Plaza Bistro, the Wine Bar, and Grove Plaza Pizza.."The Whiskey Bar" and "The Speakeasy" are now omitted.

The best information I received is that the new building will encompass the old hardware store space and the limousine building, but NOT the laundromat building.

It's going to be pretty loud there if they're going to go up 7 stories. Lots of early wake up calls for the neighborhood.

I was told they already got the car service.

You didn't want it bad enough. Why should now be a better time to call then the first day you got wind of it leaving ?

I know what you mean. I emailed the real estate group about five times in the last year to see if I could call dibs on it from whoever bought the building. Never heard back, which I'm not that surprised by.

Nothing remains. I was also a fan of the native American head. Maybe somehow it will be incorporated into the new facade, although I would think that to be unlikely.

Is the facade still there? I would hate for that weird Indian head to have been trashed.

Heard it was going to be apartments or condos, no idea about retail though. The construction crew told me it was going to be higher than the building was before so would block views of the nearby buildings. I also heard it was going to be an L shaped, looks like theres that opening that may have once been a loading dock. Not 100% sure of any of this though, just from word of mouth.

Oh, yes, Borinquen is being torn down. Chris do you have any knowledge of the scale of the building that will be built there? Retail on ground floor?

Looks like it'll be awhile since they're tearing the entire thing down. The construction workers said it'll be a tall building - so no more view for anyone behind that.

Oddly enough he said takeout will not be allowed initially. It will be dine-in only. Not sure how he's going to do it. He mentioned putting seats outside in the warmer months.

In regards to the lot south of the Jersey Ave light rail, they are moving the parking lot that exists north of the station, south of the tracks. The lots north of the station (the current parking lot) will be new apartments.

Little thread bump here...

BrightGirl, I believe a Liberty Harbor North tower will be built behind the Jersey Ave light rail station.

Anybody been to "Golden Grill" yet on Newark Ave? I saw that it was open last week. Confirmation on type of food?

I saw that the facade was installed on the whiskey bar/wine bar/pizzeria/speakeasy at Grove Plaza. I have heard that the owner is the same individual who owns Powerhouse Lounge (certainly not the most encouraging news). Anybody have the scoop on this place, when it will open, etc?

Regarding the bar in the old Hudson Camera spot ... has work basically ceased there? Many/most days I see crews there, but I haven't seen any progress in many months, from my periodic peeks in there. I wonder if Monty posts on this site, and can give an update on what the plans are for the space?

A construction fence has been put around Borinquen Hardware building. (Jersey, across from Europa). Anyone know what it will be?

Looks like the resto at the corner of Monmouth and Newark has open. The menu says it is fusion churrascaria. Maybe they omitted the con.
