Frog + Turtle Pub In Westbrook Looking To Add 2nd Floor With Outdoor Deck
As Portland's popularity has grown in recent years, so has the smaller towns and cities that surround it. One of the cities is Westbrook, which has seen a spike in growth with new restaurants and houses being built. But one of the downtown standards has remained the same for the last decade, the Frog + Turtle Gastro Pub. As Westbrook grows with more residents, the Frog + Turtle has decided it's time to grow their building....up.
According to Keep Me Current, the Frog + Turtle has put forth a proposal to the Westbrook City Council to expand their restaurant up. The plan would be to build a second floor that would include an outdoor deck overlooking the river and a glass-encased lounge as well. It would become Westbrook's first dedicated deck lounge overlooking the river.
The Frog + Turtle's expansion would just be the first step in what could be a multi-layered project over many years that would improve the entire building that houses Frog + Turtle, Jack's Thai, and several other businesses. If the initial plan is approved, the construction on Frog + Turtle's second floor expansion could begin as early as this spring.
