Fishtown Comes Out Against Massive Club

David Grasso went before Fishtown last night to offer the neighborhood a look at his proposed 34,000 square feet live music venue.

Residents voted 57-38 against supporting the proposal to the disappointment of Grasso who according to Plan Philly said he wasn’t sure what would happen next.

Here are some of the highlights of the proposed project:

  • 2,600 capacity
  • 650 parking spaces
  • 34,000 square foot building
  • Convenient to I-95
  • Mostly all-ages venue
  • Separate bar areas
  • Luxury boxes
  • Second phase 200-300 seat “neighborhood restaurant” with smaller music venue.
