I just stopped by the B&O for what I thought might be the last time and they told me they made an arrangement with the landlord to stay open until the demolition actually happens. So, they won’t be closing at the end of the month and the demolition has not been scheduled yet, it may take up to another year.
It looks like that Notice of Proposed Gentrification was a little premature.
