William Elliott of Elliott Associates has announced finalization of lease negotiations with J. Mikey Lynch to operate a wine bar at Lyon Court, a building completed earlier this year at 2393 N.E. Fremont St. in the Alameda neighborhood. Lynch will be working over the next several months with Elliot to develop the 1,726-square-foot space into a community meeting venue.
At a March open house for businesses and neighbors, Lynch said he looked forward to opening a wine bar and that he might hire up to ten full-time and part-time employees. Lynch is a graduate of Texas A&M. He said he was planning on featuring international and local wines. “I’ve been in and around wine bars, and I know what I like, and I really want to own my own place,” he said.
Elliott told the Hollywood Star News that, in July, he had two other interested parties: one was in the lease review stage, the other was submitting a letter of intent. Elliot believes a fitness facility or small market would be good uses of the space still available, and he is still seeking an interested bar/restaurant tenant. There are three more units available at Lyon Court.
