MID CITY/LAKEVIEW— A former police station on the edge of Lakeview and Mid City (801 Rosedale Dr.) near Delgado may become Susan Spicer's next restaurant, Alicia Serrano reports. The CPC has approved the project—and rescinded a conditional use permit to allow the spot to become a restaurant—but neighbors seem relatively opposed to the plans, with concerns over parking.  Todd Price confirms that Susan Spicer is involved, though the property was purchased at auction by Kevin Centanni. The plans will now head to the city. [MidCityMessenger,]

QUARTER— Oz will be undergoing renovations in the coming months to bring it back as the 'premier club in the city', according to new management 800 Enterprises LLC, who also run The Swamp and Bourbon Cowboy. The club was purchased by unpopular t-shirt mogul Mike Motwani in July for $8.175 million. [CityBusiness, sub req]
