A new bar and a pizzeria are setting up shop inside a West Village development. Developers Reimer Priester and Alex DeCamp tell Crain’s that they’re in the process of remodeling and joining together three duplexes along Kercheval Avenue east of Sister Pie and La Boheme into a single mixed-use development called Kercheval 3. The building will feature apartments and ground floor retail spaces.
Although the buildings are still in the very early stages of renovations, Priester and DeCamp say they’ve already signed on three retail tenants. A restaurant called Brudders, owned by a member of “a well-known rock band,” is expected to serve Italian food including pizzas and pastas. A neighborhood bar, dubbed Destination 1905, will be located in another street-level space. Additionally, Metropolis Cycles — a bike shop based in Corktown that’s currently popping up in the Garland Building on Kercheval — will take a space at 8116 Kercheval Ave.
The property renovations are expected to take place this summer followed by roughly three-months of buildout for the retail and restaurant spaces, placing the openings for Brudders and Destination 1905 around winter 2017/2018. Eater is reaching out for more details on the projects.
West Village has seen an uptick of neighborhood restaurant developments over the past few years. Brix Wine & Charcuterie could arrive any day now at the corner of Kercheval and Van Dyke and and butcher shop-restaurant called Marrow is expected to debut this winter in the Garland Building filling the space originally slotted for Geiger Eat Shop. A corner restaurant space was also recently listed on Agnes Street.
