The company building Harvard's luxury residential building at Barry's Corner isn't waiting for construction to be finished before signing up a restaurant to move into the space.

Samuels and Associates appeared before the Boston Licensing Board yesterday to seek permission to buy Joshua Tree's liquor license for the "neighborhood restaurant concept" it hopes to bring to the project at 219 Western Ave.

The proposed license purchase was backed by the mayor's office, several city councilors and the Allston Civic Association.

Seems there's a push to rename Barry's Corner - where Western Avenue and North Harvard Street intersect, and where Harvard once had visions of a urban village - as Allston Square.

Proponents say the renaming would honor a famous American artist - the guy the entire neighborhood is named for - and remove the icky stain of a barely remembered battle in which a neighborhood was replaced by a low-income housing project.

The Crimson reports on Harvard's latest, still kinda vague plans for Barry's Corner, the Allston intersection it basically bought up back in the heady days when it was going to transform the whole area into the Harvard for the Next Millennium.

We hear Stone Hearth Pizza opened this week in Barry's Corner and despite predictions from the Allston Civic Association, has failed to turn the area into a steaming pile of rubble, and that even people who are not fans of Duff Beer have eaten there.

Allston Civic Association President Paul Berkeley found a new reason to oppose a proposed Stone Hearth Pizza at Barry's Corner: The beer and wine license it would use comes from a restaurant in an area of Roxbury the city has said doesn't have enough restaurants serving drinks with meals.
