Worcester — For those who have been driving on Chandler Street for the past 60 years, the Beacon Auto Sales Inc. name is very familiar, even if they’ve never fixed a car there.
Sutton-based residential developer Polar Views LLC purchased the property at 119, 125 and 127 Chandler Street on November 29, 2019, with longtime Beacon owner Tom Sabasta for $2.1 million. I made a deal.
Savasta, a 79-year-old Worcesterian, told T&G that the developer was a former customer and that the facility will continue for the time being.
The transaction was brokered by realtor NAI Glickman Kovago & Jacobs. NAI Glickman Kovago & Jacobs said in a release that the developer intends to build his three-story, 15-unit apartment complex.
Rebecca Yarnie, co-owner of luxury condominium specialist Polar Views LLC, said there were no immediate plans for the property, denying the property’s statement about the plans.
The total surface area is listed on the Worcester Property Records website as over 36,200 square feet.
Yarny co-owns the company with her husband, Daniel Yarny, and is actively buying real estate in the city for residential redevelopment purposes.
In April they purchased land at 39 Lamartine St. The building was previously the site of a nearby police station and more recently Worcester Electrical Associates Inc.
Polar Views LLC recently purchased the property at 216 Chandler St., home to Suney’s Pub, a famous fish and chip restaurant for 52 years.
The couple has not disclosed plans for either property.
