Abstract

"City" piece on Old Port mega-landlord Joe Soley, questioning whether his landmark Seamen's Club restaurant will ever reopen. The club has been eligible to reopen since January 9, when its suspension for code violations expired. All Soley has to do is request an inspection, said Mark Adelson, director of housing and neighborhood services. Soley said he hasn't reopened because his chef retired. But he said he's looking for a replacement. In addition to his restaurant problems, a lawsuit was recently brought against Soley by former tenants of apartments at 436-438 Fore Street. And city officials have announced they plan to inspect Soley property at 8-10 and 9-11 Exchange Street for code violations, over Soley's objections.
