The Boston Metro reported today that the fine folks at the Middle East Nightclub “aren’t ready to retire and close the Middle East.”

The Middle East co-owner Joseph Sater discusses the club’s positive plans to develop a 100-unit residential expansion atop the Central Square complex, including a sound-buffering gallery floor, rooftop common space and a possible deal with the city to provide scooters or bikes to reduce the additional traffic these units could bring.

The fate of the Middle East has been up in the air since the property owner passed away late last year. The potential loss for this historic music venue that houses three night clubs, two-family style restaurants and a restaurant/lounge sent the local scene into a frenzy and community sounding boards such as the Facebook group Save Our Scene began to organize in an attempt to support the club's ongoing existence.
