Update: See the progress of construction in the fall of 2022.
There’s some great news at the long dormant and abandoned, and frequently vandalized former Bavarian Inn restaurant at the southeastern corner of Arsenal Street and Minnesota Avenue. The rehabilitation will return a restaurant space and outdoor patio to the old storefront facing Arsenal, and the house facing Minnesota will become a rental property.
A later kitchen addition to the south of the restaurant building has been removed, as well as later brick work that filled in large floor to ceiling windows that faced Arsenal. This intersection has been moribund for decades, and this is the first step of much more development, sources say.
