Plans have been submitted with the City of Scottsdale for renovations and addition to the former Pepin restaurant building in Old Town.
Aline Architecture Concepts has submitted remodeling and redesign plans for the restaurant space at 7363 N. Second Street.
“The improvements to the existing building are focused on maintaining the west portion of the structure (kitchen and back of house spaces) while expanding and re-configuring the dining room along with new treatment of the east facade facing Civic Center Park. Scope will also include adding a second level dining deck and bar, open on all sides but covered by roof canopy. The new ground floor, shell restaurant space will include a large dining room extending to the east, fully glazed window wall, spilling into a new outdoor dining patio in manner similar to the AZ88 and Clayton on the Park’s patios. Outdoor patio space will be shaded by an orchard-like grouping of trees,” design plans submitted to the city read.
Aline’s plans also look to connect the restaurant space to Civic Center Park.
“The edge of the space will be visually connected to the Civic Center Park by terraced down lower level planting and a canted masonry wall made to create a “floating effect”. Patio will enjoy open views into the park.”
The building is owned by 7363 LLC, an arm of Scottsdale-based Clayton Cos.
The space is also listed for lease by Clayton.
