The project consists of a tenant fit-out of the existing 5,280 SF (gross floor area) Boloco restaurant with take-out and outdoor patio seating with 32 seats for seasonal use and converting it to a new Chick-fil-A restaurant with take-out and outdoor patio seating with 14 seats for seasonal use. The proposed work also includes the construction of a ground floor addition onto the front of the building, and additional usable space added to the 3rd floor. The existing Boloco restaurant and take-out uses, located on the ground floor and basement, were authorized by Board of Appeal conditional use permit (BZC 30781), which included a proviso limiting the take-out uses to Boloco.  This proviso will need to be removed or a new conditional use permit for take-out uses will be required.  The work will also expand the restaurant and take-out uses to include the entire second floor of the building, currently used for office.  The existing outdoor patio seating area is being reduced from 32 to 16 seats to accommodate the ground floor addition.
