Did you know Avery's new $27MM brewery took nearly two years to go through the planning process? When complete, it will feature the area's largest craft brewing production, offices, tap room, and restaurant. From a real estate perspective, it will also create a magnet for the Gunbarrel neighborhood.
Here's the time lapse (courtesy of Avery).
In addition to supporting all those construction workers and solving the brewery's production challenges, when operational, Avery will also add at least 20 full time jobs to their payroll.
By the way, this is the type of project that the proposed emergency moratorium will quash. Why? Because it involved a change to land use and variance for the height of tanks, triggers for site review. See Council Seeks 9 Month Ban and More on the Moratorium for additional information.
Council's input? "Members including Sam Weaver said the entryway, with its high archway, looked too grandiose for the building's character. They offered the comments as pointers instead of making a change to the entryway a condition of the plan's approval." DC 5/17/17
