Beautiful historic Columbus Hall, recently home to Ma Ma Yolanda’s, is getting some big new changes. According to the zoning permit, part of the fire tower is being demolished, with a large 4th floor addition being added to the rear and a roof deck out in front–this is coming as the whole structure is renovated to a nine family dwelling.
We’re looking forward to the re-use of this grand Bella Vista icon and the potential for this stretch of 8th Street. With the incoming Growlers just a few doors down, gorgeous Cianfrani Park just up the street – one where we’re often known to hang – and hopefully a new coffee shop on the southeast side of 8th and Fitzwater, we’re sure that the people who move here will be more than a little pleased with their surroundings.
