Building Housing Kamado Super Fusion and JP House of Pizza in Jamaica Plain Sold to Developer
The future of a couple of dining spots in Jamaica Plain appear to be in question, as the building in which they reside has been sold to a developer.
The Jamaica Plain News is reporting (via bldup.com) that Milton-based Hajjar Management has purchased the four storefronts at 775-783 Centre Street for $1.72 million, though no specific plans for the space have been given as of yet. The block of shops includes two eateries--Kamado Super Fusion and JP House of Pizza--along with a dry cleaning shop and a now-closed convenience store, and while the structure is currently only one story high, the Jamaica Plain News says that if it were to be redeveloped, a new structure built there could reach a maximum of 45 feet in height.
The property last sold for $47,500 in 1976, according to the article.
[August 23 update: The Jamaica Plain News mentions (via Banker & Tradesman) that Hajjar Management does not have plans for a "significant redevelopment" of the block housing Kamado Super Fusion and JP House of Pizza, with COO Paul Mahoney saying that "It will remain as a retail use, with an updated facade in keeping with the vibrant Jamaica Plain market."]
