Seen & Heard: L’Angolo Might Open Tonight

••• The story changed. Anyway, the good news is that the Smile Newsstand at Shinola will reopen soon.

••• A man working on L’Angolo, where Roc was, said the restaurant could open as soon as tonight. UPDATE 5/24: Just heard it’s now tomorrow night.

••• The 1st Precinct Community Council meeting is tomorrow (May 25) at 6:30 p.m. at the precinct house.

••• The Department of Building permits for the retail space at 74 Leonard say it would be residential (unless there’s more than one…?), but now it’s a sales office for a new real estate development. The worker didn’t know which one. The most logical contender would be 91 Leonard (a.k.a. 351-355 Broadway), or the Clocktower Building at 346 Broadway, although the word was that it was creating a sales office in the former Matsugen space on Church.

••• The Bar Works co-working space at 95 Chambers is about to open.

••• And 108 Chambers, nearby, is moving along. That’s where Greystone is constructing a two-story building (to be home to a Starbucks and possibly a Vitamin Shoppe), and at some later date, adding eight stories on top. Actually, the DOB paperwork for those eight stories was filed last week. I still wonder about the push to create the Starbucks—and the only answer that comes to mind is that one of the company’s other cafés nearby is closing.
