Last Thursday, I gave a tour to Young Guns group from TREC of David Spence’s (Good Space) retail campus at the corner of N Tyler Street and W Davis Street called Clinkinbeard Quarter. Good Space added 16,000 SF of retail space in a one-story, brick building built in 1922, to the 4,000 SF wood frame Baptist Church built in 1938. Good Space has made a number of site improvements to the campus including tripling the number of parking spaces available, planting street trees, adding canopies, and providing second entries to all shops and vendors.
The Baptist Church will house a five-star restaurant with a 1600SF outdoor deck, and 2,500 SF of dining space in the sanctuary. The Clinkinbeard building, named after the former owner, Alan Clinkinbeard, is currently home to Coco Andre’s Chocolatier’s shop, The Rose Garden Remake, an optical clinic/shop, and Dallas Bike Works. Future plans for the building include a variety of uses all meant to complete an entire day’s schedule of brunching, shopping, and entertainment.
