The Wine Gallery chain is planning a new outlet in a new Seaport Boulevard building that its attorney says would be the first store to offer everything from beer to hard liquor in the South Boston Waterfront area.
At a Boston Licensing Board hearing this morning, Wine Gallery attorney Joseph Hanley said the 981-square-foot shop in the Watermark building at 89 Seaport Blvd. would meet "a pretty significant public need" in a fast-growing neighborhood without "a single full-alcohol package store."
The neighborhood is so fast growing it does not yet have a neighborhood association. The mayor's office asked the licensing board to hold off any action on the license request until after owner Marina Feldman can meet with the nearby Fort Point Neighborhood Association.
