Wetta Ventures, a partnership between David Wetta and Paul Salinas, just held a ribbon cutting on a most successful adaptive re-use project located at 7th street and Osborn in Phoenix. The first phase of the project, a mid-century, modern style Starbucks opens today. Next to that, the 1948 Church will be home to an exciting new restaurant concept by Z’Tejas, called Taco Guild, a new gastro pub featuring an array of farm-to-table tacos accompanied by some of the best tequilas available which plans to open early November. Wetta Ventures navigated the City of Phoenix’s innovative guidelines for adaptive re-use well and turned the 125 year old history rich corner into this vibrant retail center. As you can see below, the ribbon cutting was well attended, garnering appearances from Mayor Stanton and Councilman Simplot. Congratulations, David and Paul, on a really amazing project.
