Plans to Open Gastropub with Rooftop Terrace in Brockton Fall Through

Last spring, it was reported that a hospitality group behind a restaurant and rooftop bar in Providence was planning to open a similar spot in an abandoned three-story warehouse in downtown Brockton. Now we have learned that this apparently will not be happening after all.

According to an article from Wicked Local and The Enterprise, plans to open a gastropub with a similar concept to G Pub have fallen through, with the project--which Colin Geoffroy and G Hospitality were behind--being scrapped because of how much it would cost to do the necessary environmental cleanup, including the removal of several gasoline tanks along with what the the mayor's office says is a "buried object of unknown size, adjacent to the interior loading dock area." The proposed redevelopment project also included bringing a mixed-use apartment building to the Montello Street complex along with a grocery store and office space.
