REDDI-ARTS PROPERTY TO BECOME SOUTHBANK CROSSING
A longtime San Marco institution is set to give way to two new restaurants.
Local development group Chase Properties plans to purchase the Reddi-Arts building at 1037 Hendricks Ave. and redevelop the property into two new restaurants – 6,000 and 4,000 sq. ft. respectively – with outdoor seating and additional parking spaces.
Plans for the project, dubbed Southbank Crossing, were presented at a recent meeting of the city’s Downtown Development Review Board.
Chase Properties previously developed Kings Avenue Station and San Marco Place in the San Marco neighborhood.
PERFECT RACK BILLIARDS REOPENS AFTER DISPUTE
Longtime Murray Hill pillar Perfect Rack Billiards is set to reopen today after a brief closure due to a dispute with a neighboring property that led to a cease-and-desist notice from the city.
Perfect Rack – along with Black Hat Vapor and Buchner’s Bierhall – was shut down after neighboring landlord Sleiman Enterprises erected a fence that blocked dumpster access and left the businesses with just one exit point, causing them to violate the city’s fire code.
The businesses have made an arrangement with another neighbor, Goin’ Coastal Properties, to solve the access issue that shut them down.
