A restaurant in Fourth Street Live is closing.
The Red Star Tavern is being evicted for not paying rent. It will mark the second large vacancy in the development. The former Borders location has been empty since the company went bankrupt.
All leases for Fourth Street Live are handled by the Baltimore-based Cordish Companies. A spokesman for the mayor says the administration is confident Cordish will find a new restaurant tenant to fill the Red Star Tavern space.
He also says Cordish is close to securing a tenant for the Borders space. It will likely be a bar or restaurant, despite calls from local boosters for another retail space. The location could be split into an upstairs and downstairs, however, with the upstairs serving as a retail space.
