Been a while since I blogged about the Knights of Columbus building on South Gate Park. 2 years ago a developer proposed knocking down the building and putting up 5 residential units with garage parking underneath. The neighborhood thought it was gonna look like a Motel 6 and shot it down at community meetings.
Um you guys? This is what a Motel 6 looks like.
And this is what the Knights of Columbus looks like.
I’d take the Motel 6 all day. Maybe they have a continental breakfast. Or late checkout. It’s better than this absolute horror show of a building. I mean if I’m a Newton Police detective investigating an abduction, the case starts here.
Thankfully, the city has approved interior demo and word on the street is there will be 3 new attached single family homes being built here. (I believe the laymans term is townhouses.) I’ll keep you guys posted.
