“At no point prior to closing did we ever believe our building to be unsafe for occupants.”
– Kevin Keelan,
1010 West Facility Director
Following a sudden City-imposed closure last May, 1010 West (Website) has finally reopened for business.
The management of the former airplane hanger turned event venue/church, located at 1010 W. Church Street [GMap] had failed to take out the required permits to change the zoning of the building and were shut down in order to be brought up to code. More on that HERE.
The management team at 1010 West, a subsidiary ministry of The Cross Orlando, was told by the City that they must address three issues namely the “questionable installation of spray insulation” on the ceiling, lack of fire sprinklers in the building, and the needed to construct a new firewall between their structure and the neighboring Broken Cauldron Taproom and Brewery.
1010 West’s facility director, Kevin Keelan, told Bungalower that it was discovered during the review process with the City of Orlando that the fire-retardant foam in question was in fact installed correctly. The sprinklers and a fire alarm were added to the building along with a new firewall to separate the building from the nearby brewery.
1010 management also replaced both the entrance and exit doors and the HVAC system. They also agreed to host no more than 250 people at a time in the building.
A “viewing celebration” event will be held from 5-9 p.m. on December 19 to reveal the upgrades and renovations to the public and prospective event or wedding rentals. The event will include complimentary drinks and holiday music.
