Vacant Brooklyn Center Bowling Alley to be Converted to Event Center
A vacant bowling alley in Brooklyn Center will soon be getting a second life. The former AMF Earle Brown Lanes closed in 2015. Now, the new owner of the property, Tashitaa Tufaa, plans to do an extensive remodel to the 35,000 square-foot building and turn it into an event center and restaurant.
Construction could start in late spring. Monday night, the Brooklyn Center City Council approved a special use permit that allows the owner to convert the former bowling alley into a restaurant and event center. The project was initially supposed to begin in 2018, but the property owner needed more time to pull his plan together.
