The Planning board recently authorized a resolution that approves the application for the liquor store relocate to the part of the Arnold Avenue building formerly occupied by Curves.
Cox said that the store will be housed in the same building as the hardware store on Arnold Avenue, and that a "deliberate attempt was made to change the façade of the building to fall in line with the historic nature of the area."
The building will be able to be accessed from two points, a front entrance off of 525 Arnold Avenue, and a entrance from the parking lot that the building shares with Joe leones food market.
Prasada Raju Indukuri, who also owns another wine store in Wall, Will operate the business. He was out of the country and unavailable for comment on this article today.
The Planning Board's vote follows years of applications for the store. Much of the past discussion on the store focused on the location of the new, proposed door at the new location, which would be just east of the existing door, that fronts on Arnold, and eight feet recessed from the facade.
The distance between the proposed, new door at the new location and the door to Europa South, a Portuguese restaurant at the corner of Route 35 and Arnold Avenue, meets a state-mandated minimum distance between two liquor licenses by 10 inches.
