The Anchor up for Renewal The Anthem Group, which operates The Anchor venue in the Navy Yard, will be up for an activation license renewal at the BPDA Board on Thursday. The Anchor has had great successes throughout the pandemic running outdoor activities and notable displays for Halloween and the Winter holidays/Christmas.
The BPDA is recommending the Board approve the license to start on March 1 and with the same terms as the previous agreement. The license would run through Jan. 1, 2022. “The combination of responsible, physically-distanced, yet engaging and interesting programs led to nearly every event reaching its allowed capacity based on COVID-19 health guidelines,” read the memo. “As a result, The Anchor continued to add fitness programs, self-instructed arts/crafts and similar programs that both helped meet the public demand but also continued to have a positive economic impact on some of the most vulnerable types of businesses and entertainers.” The terms of the license include a base monthly fee of $2,000 and 15 percent of the previous month’s receipts.
