A vacant space formerly home to a dry cleaner on Elliot Street is envisioned to have a greener future. At a hearing Wednesday, the DRB unanimously approved Subterra Cannabis LLC’s request for a cannabis grow facility at 89 Elliot St. The property was previously known as Lawton Dry Cleaners.
Nathan Rupert said that for the last 15 years, he’s been working his way up Elliot Street, turning around derelict buildings, starting with Boomerang and then moving on to the Hazel restaurant. He sold Boomerang and still co-owns Hazel.
“Now I’m moving hopefully next door on to the dry cleaners there,” he said, estimating the building has been vacant for about eight years. “I just purchased it a couple of months ago.”
Rupert plans to house cannabis grow facility in the basement for a couple of years while he figures out what the building should be used for in the future.
