Five Fish Bistro’s deep-fried fish and chip goodness is weeks away but the Broadway UPS Store that moved to make way for the new restaurant — and to take advantage of the Joule building’s ample parking — is up and running in its new home.
It’s a move that might be familiar to many on the Hill where it’s not uncommon for residents to move only a few blocks to upgrade their setting but remain on the Hill. In this case, the UPS store has moved two blocks and across the street but is still on Broadway.
CHS stopped by to see the new space for Naresh Bhatt’s UPS outlet in the Joule just south of Blue Moon Burger and the newly opened ZoomCare clinic. Bhatt said he’s pleased with his decision to move his operations and get things settled before the holiday rush.
Earlier this year, Bhatt told CHS he “realized that having parking would be a tremendous asset.” In the Joule, he now can offer customers validated parking in the indoor lot.
Bhatt said he doesn’t know if there’s a tenant lined up for the Joule’s empty southern corner but he’s hopeful that work underway to prepare the space is a good sign.
