Don't let the old 7-Eleven on Charles St. become a Capital One Bank branch

      Michael Bruck

      Boston, MA

Capital One Bank wants to move into the current location of The Charles Street Market (the old 7-Eleven) at the corner Charles St. and Mt. Vernon.  In order to do so, they need a variance from the Boston Zoning Board.

Please join us in opposing the approval of the variance so that Capital One cannot move into the space.

The petition letter in the "Petition Letter" tab to the right and the signatures will be presented to The Boston Zoning Board of Appeals in advance of their February 28 meeting to discuss this matter.


If you signed the paper petition at the BHCA Zoning meeting, please don't sign this one.

Thank you for your support!

      Linear Properties has forced the Charles Street Market out of the old 7-11 space. They raised the rent so that it was unaffordable.

      This business keeps foot traffic going through the area for much longer than a bank would be open, helping to improve the safety and stability of the neighborhood. Moreover, there are simply too many products this convenience store offers which are not available in the immediate area from another shop. I am not a resident, but a worker in this area. Please keep the store and its great improvements right where it is.

      The Market is a vital part of the Charles St and Beacon Hill community. Adding another bank to the landscape while removing the Market as a resource will have a substantial impact on the livability of the neighborhood.

      Another bank on that corner does not add to the commerce of Charles Street, nor would it bring additional foot traffic to the neighborhood. Please continue to support local businesses on this charming street that so many tourists visit every year.
