We may be heading into the summer season, but June still looks to be a busy month for Community Board 3. Here’s a look ahead.

On Monday, June 11, the State Liquor Authority (SLA) Committee will consider a proposal for multiple restaurants/bars within The Allen, a hotel at 140 Allen St. You know the spot. For years, it was a stalled construction site until Morris Moinain picked up the distressed property at auction in 2016. According to documents filed with CB3, the 17-story hotel is slated to open in early 2019. There will be 98 guest rooms and eating/drinking establishments on the ground floor, second floor and rooftop. Click here if you’d like to look at the full application.

On Monday, June 18 the SLA Committee will meet again to review several interesting proposals. Ludlow House/Soho House will be outlining its plan to demolish the neighboring club, Libation on Ludlow Street, replacing it with an outdoor garden/restaurant with a retractable roof. Here’s the full application from the Soho House team.

On Thursday, June 28 there will be a long-awaited appearance at the transportation committee by DOT traffic engineers.  They are expected to finally detail their plans for fixing the Grand/Clinton Street gridlock dilemma. Local residents, elected officials and CB3 leaders have been clamoring for a solution.
