In December of 2015, Bove's, the iconic Italian restaurant of Burlington,Vermont, closed its doors to hungry locals to move North to Milton, Vermont and focus on their spaghetti sauce business. The closing sparked discussion on what would come to the 1940s building. While some suggested it be moved to Shelburne Museum, others argued it needed to stay put being on the Vermont State Register of Historic Places. The owner, however has a much different idea for the iconic piece of little Italy in mind. He is proposing a $14 million apartment complex for 64 Pearl Street which would turn the 1940s restaurant as well as two 19th century apartment buildings to rubble.
