False alert: no tenant seems to be signed up for the new WFC renovations

January 15, 2013 By Steven E. Greer

The liquor licensed that was supposed to be discussed at the CB1 meeting tonight was not brought up for a vote or even discussion. No one on the CB1 board seems to know the identity of the establishment requesting the license, or whether there really is a tenant at all. Moreover, no member of the Brookfield staff attended the CB1 meeting, to our knowledge. By all evidence, progress with the WFC renovations, and signing up new tenants, is going slowly.

BatteryPark.TV previously report in 2012 how the renovations underway in the WFC were proceeding behind schedule because no tenants had been sign up. At the next CB1 meeting on January 15th, a mystery restaurant is applying for a liquor license. We believe this means that a lease has been signed, but cannot verify that.

Also on the CB1 agenda will be the topic of the much-needed traffic lights on West Thames Avenue, and the repair of the ballfields.
