WORCESTER – The Worcester Historical Commission voted on Thursday, May 09, to allow the demolition of the former Four Seasons Restaurant, 249 Lake Ave.

The owner, Manor Real Estate Trust, has a year to begin the demolition of the restaurant and what remains of two lakefront cabins.

Over the objections of neighbors, the owner sought on Feb. 4 and was granted a variance by the Zoning Board of Appeals for relief from the minimum frontage dimensional requirement. The plan, per the owner’s application, is to construction four single-family houses.

The restaurant last operated as the Four Seasons. Its website is no longer active and its Facebook page contains only two posts from December 2014. The property, valued by the city at $675,100, was sold for $650,00 in January 2016.
