The City of Lakewood has approved the first parklet for our friends at LBM Bar and we couldn’t be happier to see it materialize! The pandemic has presented small businesses, restaurants & bars with many challenges to enable social distancing while maintaining service, and we are thankful to have assisted LBM with their expanded seating proposals and navigating the public approval process. Our goal was to help LBM reach Pre-Covid seating numbers to ensure the return of full wait staff in a safe and healthy manner illustrating phased plans that enable a full return to service in a manner that helped working with the City. The collaborative effort between Eric Ho of LBM, building owner/developer Frank Scalish, Bialosky Cleveland, and public officials exemplifies how positive outcomes come from working together and celebrating our unique skill sets.
