Old power plant to become village pub, brewery
Renovation of the old Pinehurst steam plant into a pub and microbrewery has long been seen as a possible anchor for redevelopment of a somewhat unsightly area on the outskirts of the village’s quaint downtown.
The village itself tried four years ago to attract a tenant with the help of some state grants, but a deal with a local brewery fell through.
Now, Pinehurst Resort, which owns the property, is moving ahead with its own plan for “an adaptive reuse and conversion” of the 7,000-square-foot building constructed in 1895.
