9/16/2014: What’s up with the Knights of Columbus Hall?

Got some inside info today on the Knights of Columbus Hall. What do you do when you get inside info?  Put it on the internet.  Obviously.  It’s like Internet 101.

KofC is the large building just across Waltham St — where the road splits between North & South Gate Park.  KofC is a fraternal benefit society that offers financial aid to members and their families.  Social and intellectual fellowship is also offered — kinda like Scotch Club.

Tony Pasquale has purchased the building and has been working with the Planning Department to determine future use in accordance with city regulations.  In a meeting with the Development Review Team 2 weeks ago, Tony discussed saving the building and converting it to housing units.  Tony has also submitted a full demo proposal to keep his options open.  Below is a photograph of the building in 1910.


PS — check out the note to Olive on the photo.  Kinda catty.  It’s like we have our dances here and it’s awesome — can you even foxtrot Olive?  Worst part is it’s from MLK.  Not his best work.
