The Real Deal reports that the Taj team has ditched plans to return the Roxy to its former glory as a nightclub: “The only way that we can be successful in applying for a liquor license, as well as maintaining a liquor license, is through a harmonious relationship with the neighbors,” said the buyers’ lawyer at last night’s Community Board 4 meeting. “It doesn’t appear as though there’s going to be one. Toward that end, we’re willing to walk away from this project.” Maybe the space can be converted into a big ol’ chocolate and candy mart, à la Limelight?
