A company that wants to build a carwash in Oak Cliff has requested a zoning change for a vacant lot on West Davis at Tennant.

Frank S. Nuchereno submitted an application to build a 3,500-square-foot “tunnel carwash” and 20,000 feet of surface parking lot at 517 N. Tennant, behind Metro Diner.

The lot on Tennant falls just outside the boundaries Bishop/Davis zoning. It currently is zoned for single-family homes, and the company wants it changed to community-retail zoning.

Per the zoning-change application:

We intend to build a first-class tunnel carwash that is representative of the architecture of the neighborhood and approved by our neighbors.

The corner lot backs up to Metro Diner, and it’s across the alley from a single-family home to the south. To the east across Tennant is a small apartment complex. The West Kessler neighborhood is just north of it, across West Davis.

The application states that the owners have spoken to City Plan Commission member Mike Anglin.

“We will be a good neighbor and have a positive impact in this neighborhood,” the application states.

A Loopnet listing for the property shows that it was on the market for $600,000.
