A new proposed development in Montrose recently announced includes an impressive lower Fairview revitalization set to break ground in the late summer of 2016.
The news also brings to light the property where the popular LGBT bar Meteor is located. The proposal released; places a six story parking garage at 2302-2308 Genesee, the current home of Meteor. But the developer admits ‘things could change closer’ to ground breaking.
“We finalized the sale of the property in late October” Charles Armstrong; owner of Meteor explains to About News.
“Meteor was not sold, just the property.”
Meteor will lease the property until construction is set to start. It is not uncommon for a bar owner to lease property. It’s more common for a bar to lease than to purchase the property.
“Matter of fact, it’s business as usual.” Armstrong says “We have events planned all the way through the Spring of 2016.”
Armstong informed employees of the changes coming, in a staff meeting late Wednesday afternoon and clarified any rumors.
The massive project includes redeveloping a number of nearby commercial properties with new retail, office parking space.
The new structures in the new concept will run east and west through the of Fairview, with the center running north/south streets of Morgan, Taft, Mason and Genesee.
