From the notebook of business editor Tim Rausch

Pardon our progress

Few days go by without someone's asking me, "Hey, what's up with the Bee Hive building?"

If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's the gutted four-story building at 970 Broad St. with the plywood facade.

I thought that would ring a bell.

The developers of The Bee Hive bar/restaurant (not to be confused with the bar/restaurant The Bee's Knees just down the street) had their demolition permit approved last year but have yet to submit a construction permit.

Michael Anglin, the building's owner and a Bee Hive investor, had this to say when reached by phone: "It will be back on track very shortly."

He declined to elaborate. So now you know everything I do about the building.
