If you’ve driven by the Nickerson Street Saloon just to the south of the Fremont Bridge recently, you may have noticed the land use signs displayed in the parking lot.
That’s a proposal to demolish the restaurant/saloon and build a 5-story apartment building and a single-story retail building on the prominent corner property.
We contacted Nickerson’s GM Chris Martino to see what will happen with the saloon, and he said it will be coming back in the new building. There are also plans for a coffee shop, but it’s too soon to know if it will be Electric Cloud Coffee, which operates the drive-through in the parking lot.
The development is also slated to have a fitness studio and on-site parking for 37 vehicles.
Martino said the project is still in its early phases and is still a couple years away. “We’re not going away anytime soon,” he said. “We’ll be here one way or another.”
