For decades, the old furniture store at 401 Dauphin St. sat empty, its front doorway and back alley a shelter for al commercial property

Now, two Mobile developers want to pour $1 million into the property to turn it into a stylish two-story music venue.

The Mobile City Council will vote on Tuesday whether to uphold a planning commission ruling from last month that essentially halted the project.

If the city overturns the planning commission’s decision, the developers say that they plan to pump $1 million into renovating the century-and-a-half-old 401 Dauphin St.
