A bowling alley could be coming to the South End of Burlington soon.
Part of a warehouse on Pine Street, owned by the Burlington City Arts Foundation but leased to the Burlington-based development company Redstone, is under review to be partially re-zoned as a bowling alley.
“I think it’s a pretty cool use for that space,” said Doreen Kraft, the executive director of Burlington City Arts. “This is nice and compatible with the arts.”
The Burlington City Arts Foundation acquired the building — a 30,800-square-foot warehouse at 405 Pine Street — at the end of 2019, and planned to use the space for low-cost artist and musician studios, which it has for many months. A 14,440-square-foot section of the warehouse is being leased by Redstone, who submitted an application on July 20 to change the use of the space from warehouse to bowling alley.
Kraft said the plans for the bowling alley space include an attached restaurant and bar with a deck for outdoor seating. Tenants and employees in the rest of the building, she noted, are excited about having food on the premises. The zoning permit application suggests the alley will have 10 lanes.
Redstone did not respond to several requests for comment by phone.
Burlington’s only current bowling alley is tucked away in the basement of the St. Mark’s Parish church in Burlington’s North End. It has eight lanes and is open to the public by reservation.
The permit application for the Pine Street warehouse is classified as “under review” on the City of Burlington’s website.
