Developer Ross Morgan is angling to turn his former Nolita carriage house into a high-end restaurant and ritzy apartments. According to DNAinfo, Morgan received approval for a liquor license at 177 Mott Street last week from Community Board 2’s State Liquor Authority committee, despite the objections of some community members, who worried about the potential for noise at a new neighborhood hot spot. The restaurant, which Ross has named the Brewster, in homage to the Brewster & Co. carriage factory that called the building home during the 1800s, would serve up to 150 people on the first floor and basement levels. But, Morgan, who plans to live in building himself, assured his neighbors at the meeting that “we’re selling a $3 million apartment right above this so it’s counter-intuitive to have a scene going on here.” The full community board will vote on Morgan’s liquor license Nov. 18, after which the SLA will make a final decision.
