Former Applebee's Building in Brighton's Cleveland Circle Being Demolished
A now-closed location of a casual restaurant chain that was popular with college students is in the process of being torn down to make way for new development.
A Twitter post from @davharris of the Boston Business Journal shows a picture of the former Applebee's in the Cleveland Circle section of Brighton being fenced off and apparently in the process of demolition, with the post including the note "So long, Applebee's in Cleveland Circle. We hardly knew ye" and a reply from him confirming that it is indeed being torn down today. Both the restaurant and the old Circle Cinema are being replaced by a complex that may include a hotel, luxury senior housing, retail space, and one or two restaurants (including what could be a high-end dining spot).
The Cleveland Circle location of Applebee's shut down for good last summer.
A High-End Restaurant (or Two) May Be Coming to the Old Applebee's/Circle Cinema Site in Cleveland Circle
