This week, YIMBY stopped by the former Pennsylvania Railroad terminal building at Fulton Market Distict’s 375 N Morgan Street, where a partial demolition has taken place. This wrecking work is set to clear the way for a new Guinness Brewery to be co-developed by Guinness and Fred Latsko. The adaptive re-use of the original structure will make way for a 10-barrel brewery and taproom, and will accommodate an Irish-themed restaurant component that sources local chefs.
