The Annapolis Board of Appeals has upheld a Department of Planning and Zoning decision to allow a homeless shelter to be built on Hudson Street, despite contention from a local businessman who said the shelter does not conform to the city zoning code at the proposed building site. Michael Roblyer, who has a law firm on Willow Street near the proposed shelter site, filed an appeal in February that the Light House Homeless Prevention Support Center, which is scheduled to start construction this summer at 10 Hudson St., could not be built in a BCE, or business corridor enhancement, zone because of the way certain terms are defined in the city code.

If you know Canton at all, the Hudson Street Stackhouse is easy to find. It's across the street from the Safeway, in the shadow of a tall industrial structure that looks like a shot tower. The Hudson Street Cafe used to be here; Dominic DeSantis reopened the building this past summer after a lengthy renovation, and he's done a good job. It seems as if he wanted the Stackhouse to be more of a neighborhood joint than a destination restaurant. There are nods to Canton's industrial past - some reclaimed furnishings, the ugly-beautiful Frankenstein floor uncovered during renovations and an impressive riveted-steel beer-tap island designed by David Hess.

The DeSantis family has another hit bar on its hands. The new Hudson Street Stackhouse, owned by son Dominic DeSantis, brings together the industrial feel of a warehouse and the warm, welcoming atmosphere of your favorite corner bar. The Stackhouse, which sits right across the street from the old Can Co., is ruggedly beautiful. Toss in a quality beer selection and keen bartenders, and you've got one of the city's best new bars. But that shouldn't come as a surprise. Owning top-notch neighborhood bars is in DeSantis' blood.
