Back in May, plans were submitted to transform a property at 36 Congress Street. The building, home to the K-1 Supermarket, starts at the intersection with Palisade Avenue Home and continues down Congress Street until the storefront occupied by The Cliff.
The address is locally famous for the retro “lowe-t prices” ghost sign that adorns the Congress Street side of the building. Just two blocks from the Congress/9th Street Light Rail station and a short walk from Riverview Park, a company called The Other Side Cannabis Lounge envisions it as its new home.
The application is aiming to convert one retail space over two floors into the cannabis dispensary and lounge, which would total 3,047 square feet of space. Both the city’s planning board and cannabis control board would need to approve The Other Side’s application, in addition to other state-level entities.
