An alert UHub reader noticed the guy who said he wanted to build a hotel catering to observant Jews on VFW Parkway in West Roxbury (where the burned-out McDonald's used to be) sold the property yesterday for $1.4 million to the owner of a Brockton gas station and car wash. The BRA's King David Hotel page is now gone, although you can still see the initial filing for the project.
Since there is one literally across the street. I don't know that a gas station there would necessarily be a big hit, unless they get Prime to fill all their cars there. My vote is for a 99 restaurant.
.....oh how I wish they would rebuild Fontaines in that spot!! They could even put out a new flick'n chick'n!
For most of my life, this was a McDonald's with another McDonald's literally across the street. People hate U-turns :)
There was a car wash on that side of the street...........
next time, try somewhere in Brighton, Brookline, or Newton that's actually within walking distance of synagogues and kosher stores and restaurants?
