Residents of a Tremont Street condo building say lengthening hours at Sal's Pizza next door would bring the wrong element back onto the street.
The Boston Licensing Board decides tomorrow whether to let Sal's, open for about nine months now at 150 Tremont St., extend its hours from 10 p.m. to midnight.
The move has the support of the Midtown Park Plaza Neighborhood Association, Suffolk University and most other downtown groups, according to the restaurant's lawyers and Peggy Ames of the neighborhood association, who told the board that residents and Suffolk students and staff are all in need of a later-night pizza outlet (Ed note: Because New York Pizza down the street is too far away, or too deep into Emerson territory?).
But a representative of the condo association at Tremont on the Common said condo owners voted to opposed the added hours. "The neighborhood has really significantly improved over the years" and the residents are concerned about "the type of clientele they might see" at a pizza place open until midnight.
