Renovations to the 1922 retail building at West Davis and Edgefield are well underway since an Oak Cliff family purchased it earlier this year. And two new tenants already are on board.
The Book Doctor, which opened in the Bishop Arts District about eight years ago, has leased a corner space and plans to open there by the end of the month.
Book Doctor owner Candice McKay says the Bishop Arts District is too busy, and her space is bigger than she needs.
“We didn’t need to have this huge space and pay the Bishop Arts rent,” says McKay, who lives in Kings Highway. “We need a little more quiet.”
The building’s owners also have agreed to terms with Jaho Coffee and Tea, which has two locations in Massachusetts. The coffee shop could open as soon as Oct. 1.
