Rostamo’s Bar and Grill in Crystal Demolished
A longtime Crystal tavern has met the wrecking ball in order to make way for a new medical clinic.
Crews demolished the former Rostamo’s Bar and Grill along County Road 81 in Crystal this week.
The well-known gathering spot near the Crystal Airport had been around for decades, but owner Richard Rostamo decided it was time to retire and put the venue up for sale. The venue closed late last year.
Minneapolis-based Odam Medical Group purchased the property earlier this year. It plans to build a 19,000-square-foot clinic on the site.
“It’s great to see that kind of investment and employment and those services being available in Crystal,” said John Sutter, Crystal’s community development director.
Initially, the medical group will only build a one-story clinic, but it has plans to build two additional floors at some point in the future as its patient base grows.
City officials expect the new clinic to open sometime in 2023.
