El Morocco Building On The Block

The former home of the El Morocco restaurant in Worcester was scheduled to be auctioned off today at 11 a.m.  The 12,000-square-foot building is located at 100 Wall St. on approximately 1.79 acres. The building is being foreclosed upon by Shrewsbury-based Central One Federal Credit Union, according to Frank Trapasso of Francis J. Trapasso & Associates, which is handling the auction.

The most recent owner of the building was Shawn Kelly of MetroWest Commercial Real Estate, according to Trapasso. There had been plans to build a 90-unit apartment building at the site, but construction never started.    The El Morocco was operated by the Aboody family for many years and established itself as a local landmark.
