Commonwealth Sky Bar, under construction

The Commonwealth Restaurant & Skybar was a restaurant with a rooftop bar that opened in September 2011. [1]. [2]

The restaurant closed in the early days of the COVID-19 Emergency and did not reopen. The Champion Hospitality Group purchased the business and renamed it Passiflora. [3]

History

The restaurant had originally been expected to open in June 2011. [4] Alex George is one of five investors working on the project, which will be located in the former A&N Building on the downtown mall.[4] Construction required the bricking over windows in apartments located in an adjacent building.

Plans were approved by the Board of Architectural Review in February 2011.[1]

The initial cuisine was "new American with a South American influence." [5]

Interior construction design was provided by Alloy Workshop and Rowen Barton Studio.[6]
