Renovation began on the 1922 building formerly known as the Cannon’s Village shopping center on West Davis at Edgefield less than a year ago, and the retail space already is fully leased.
Restaurateur Jean Michel Sakouhi is planning to open a wine bar, Cepage, there. Sakouhi also is opening a Cepage in Deep Ellum, which will focus on French food. The Oak Cliff restaurant could be open as early as March.
Deirdre Sutton of Zola’s, which opened shop in Bishop Arts 12 years ago, says she’s hoping to open the new shop by Feb. 1.
“We’re excited to be so close to the Kessler and Nova and all that,” she says. “I think that’s going to be a really big destination.”
Hairstylist Jake Tafoya also is moving her hair salon, the Mod Labb, to the West Davis building.
The Book Doctor already moved to a corner space there a few months ago, and a grilled cheese restaurant is now in the works in the Book Doctor’s old Bishop Arts space.
The dog grooming place, Oak Clips, is staying put in their space on Edgefield.
The shopping center’s owner, Kacy Jones, is planning to convert the second floor into two residences for his family and in laws. He expects to start construction on those apartments early next year.
