Some are not ready to draw the curtain on the Varsity Theater for the proposed apartment development

A development team is proposing to convert the vacant Varsity Theater building into a 35-unit apartment building with nearly 10,000 square feet of retail that would wrap the alley to the adjacent Bookman’s Alley property.

Steve Rogin, the property’s longtime owner, in partnership with developer Campbell Coyle, presented details of the project at a First Ward virtual meeting on January 13.

Chris Dillion, president of Campbell Coyle Real Estate, said the plan calls for ground-floor retail to run from the Varsity building in the 1700 block of Sherman Avenue to Bookman’s Alley.
