SO GOOD IN SO MANY WAYS

A HOMERUN FOR GRANVILLE & PROSPECT STREET

 

Three reasons why relocating Three Tigers Brewing/Mai Chau to larger facilities at the former fire station in Granville is a home run selection for the Village of Granville.

 

1 Craft breweries make strong economic sense by growing municipal tax revenues and property tax values.

2 Three Tigers Brewing/Mai Chau is a proven locally owned hospitality concept.

3 Three Tigers Brewing/Mai Chau is a firmly rooted Granville institution and retail anchor on the N. Prospect Street block.

 

 

PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT SUMMARY

 

Mai Chau Restaurant Group LLC has been operating Three Tigers Brewing Co & Mai Chau on Prospect for five years at 140 and 138 N. Prospect Street respectively. We propose to develop the old Granville fire station into an expanded craft brewing operation, a larger brewpub restaurant, and a family entertainment venue, moving our established N. Prospect Street businesses into this larger, sustainable space. The development will maintain the current exterior and celebrate the grand interior of the fire station space. We will leverage the fire station spirit and create a community center and venue that highlights the nearly 50 years of service the fire station has provided to the Granville community.

CRAFT BREWERIES, SUCH AS THREE TIGERS, ARE POWERFUL ECONOMIC ENGINES FOR SMALL TOWNS

Breweries have a documented record of positive economic impacts in small communities. In particular, brewpubs like Three Tigers/Mai Chau elevate the success of their retail neighbors. Craft breweries increase residential property values. Brewpubs are an environmentally friendly industry as ‘Craft Beer Tourism’ has become a category within travel and visitor bureaus. For these, and other reasons, brewpubs have become an important economic development strategy among local and state governments across the US.

 

"This new research shows that craft breweries contribute to increased property tax revenues for local governments, in addition to job creation and aiding neighborhood revitalization efforts"

- Dr. Neil Reid, professor of geography and planning at the University of Toledo

CREATIVE DIAGONAL PARKING PLAN ADDS 14 NEW SPACES TO N PROSPECT STREET

DIAGONAL PARKING SOLUTION

 

With the departure of the township fire department, Three Tigers/Mai Chau proposed turning this block of N. Prospect Street one way heading North of E. Broadway and designating diagonal parking on the West side, thereby adding 12 parking spaces on this side of the street.

Two more parking spaces can be added to the East side of N. Prospect Street in the area previously reserved for fire truck turn around in front of First Federal. This results in a net gain of 14 parking spaces for retailers on the block and a new total of 30 parking spaces.
