Locke-Ober’s top floors to be turned into residences

Contrary to early hopes that the old Locke-Ober restaurant might be later revived after last month’s closing, it looks like the new owners are planning to open a new restaurant, with a new name, on Winter/Jackson Place in Downtown Crossing.

From a real estate standpoint, the other interesting thing is that the new owners, who paid $3.3 million for the Locke-Ober property, are planning to put residences in the property’s upper floors. No other details available.

They could be very attractive condos/apartments if handled right. The Jackson Place alley nook is really pretty cool for those who like that Old World urban feel.
