Construction at 40 Channel Center

The buildout for a new restaurant, Barlow's, at 40 Channel Center St. is set to begun and will last for ~4 weeks. It's going to be done by Folan Construction.

Some details on the plan:

The wooden deck will be extended to the rear of the building to the 40 Channel Center Street entrance. This is for customer convenience and service efficiency. The 20’-deep deck will have a steel trellis (open to the sky) and a living screen to camouflage the concrete and offer a privacy screen to the diners. LED lighting will also be installed.

The fresh air intake unit, located on the south side of the building, will remain there. This unit and the other mechanical units soon to be installed will be screened in so they will not be visible.

Project will commence in about 4 weeks, and will be done on a Monday-Friday schedule, using a vacuum drill for dust control. The work schedule will be forwarded to us when developed, but work is expected to start in 1-2 weeks.

The windows on the north and south elevations will be cut in on Saturdays and will take about 4-6 Saturdays. This work permit states that this work must be done on a Saturday due to building occupancy (and vibration).

The entire project, pointing, weatherproofing and replacement windows, will take approximately 8 weeks to complete.

The restaurant capacity is about 260 and there will be a small function room for 30-50 located in the basement. An emergency egress for this function room will be on the south side of the building.

Pat and Tom anticipate opening the restaurant mid-June. The hours of operation will be 11 AM to 1AM and the deck will close at 11 PM.

Barlow's will also be operating a small cafe that will be located in the 10-20 Channel Center building. Cafe will be open M-F, offering breakfast/lunch items.
