NEWRA has sent a letter of “no objection” to the City of Boston Zoning Board of Appeal relating to a proposal to operate a Spin Bike Studio and ancillary juice/smoothie bar in the first floor and basement space at 10 Lewis Street, formerly occupied by the Armenis Olive Oil Company.

Zoning approval is needed to convert the use of the building from 3 apartments and commercial space, to 3 apartments, fitness facility in supplemental juice/smoothie bar.

Plans call for a reception area, juice bar and prep kitchen on the first floor and a spin fitness facility with approximately 15 bike stations in the basement.

The owner, also expects to apply for a C.V. License for beverages and a non-live entertainment license for recorded music. Plans were presented and discussed at the ZLC Committee meeting on December 17.

No abutters or border community concerns were raised and the Executive Committee subsequently approved the recommendation of the ZLC Committee not to bring this appeal to NEWRA members for a vote and instead to send a letter to the Board of Appeal Licensing Board and the Mayor’s Office of Consumer Affairs and Licensing stated NEWRA has no objection to the proposal, according to a NEWRA report.
