A building permit was posted today in the window of one of the remaining vacant ground floor retail spaces in the ICON building (2299 Market Street). The permit calls for tenant improvements to suite A including the addition of plumbing fixtures and lighting for a proposed "limited-restaurant / espresso bar."
We reported a few months back that Dermalogica moved into one of the vacant retail spaces, so that leaves one last retail space still vacant. According to the Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association newsletter, the remaining retail space has been leased, but no word as of yet regarding who the occupant will be.
The permit expires July 9th, so we should be seeing the espresso shop opening up around July/August.
