White Heron Tea and Coffee gets OK for Islington Street


The city’s historic district commission has approved plans for the renovation of the building on Islington Street into the White Heron Tea and Coffee, a cafe with a tea-packaging component. A surf shop and a martial arts studio are already on the property. Last month the board of adjustment approved a change of use of the building at 601 Islington St. from retail to restaurant and light industry and granted a variance to allow 20 parking spaces where 60 spaces are required.
