Petition Closed

The owners of property on the southeast corner of 3rd Avenue and Demonbreun represented they would be renovating an existing historic building to build a diner inspired by Junior's in New York City.  The original historic building has been demolished and the building plans suggest there will be a bar on each floor of the replacement building with open air floors and a roof top patio similar to Honky Tonk Central.  A honky tonk in the heart of the residential area in SoBro would be a complete nuisance and detract from property values for those who have invested in residences in this area.  The proposed site plan would circumvent the Downtown Code and Metro's planning goals.  It would destroy the 14 foot sidewalks that have made SoBro so attractive to pedestrian trafffic, upscale restaurants, upscale hotels, and the beautiful Schermerhorn Symphony Center.  Keep the honky tonks on Lower Broad! We the undersigned hereby petition the Metro Planning Commision to hold these owners accountable for the demoltion of a historic buidling and stop installation of a 24 hour honky tonk in the heart of the SoBro district now.

Please stop the 24 Hour "Diner" on Demonbreun. There are strong indications this development will be used as a honky tonk. Keep the honky tonks on Lower Broad and away from the upscale residential development in SoBro and our beautiful Symphony Center.
