A reader sent in the "after" photo taken at 1113 West Argyle (immediately west of Luck Foods) above, and said, " I don’t know if the inside is also being renovated or if Vinh Phat is going back in, but this was one ugly storefront for MANY years."
We did some poking around and found out that the building has been awarded a Curb Appeal Rebate Grant by Uptown United, which is the reason for the exterior improvements. A new tenant named Hong Nyu, a restaurant specializing in Vietnamese street food, will open in the space.
You can see the huge difference made when Hai Yen got a Curb Appeal Rebate Grant last year. Check it out here.
Thank you to reader MW for the heads up.
