Blackwood Developments is remaking an aging shopping center in Old East Dallas.

The new buildings will be at the corner of Bryan and Fitzhugh, but don’t worry, Mai’s Restaurant was the first client to sign on.

The new project will have 7,000 square feet of retail space with two restaurant locations, floor to ceiling windows and a large courtyard. The work includes a complete gut and remodel of the existing property, which used to house Jade Restaurant. “Essentially, it is going to be two new buildings,” said Sammy Aflalo of Blackwood Developments.

Construction should be complete in the next two months. No other tenants were announced, but there has been “tremendous interest” according to Aflalo.

    Nice upgrade for the neighborhood but as good as Mai’s is, its a little uncomfortable to dine in it’s newly remodeled home. I lIked the vibe of the old version better. Oh well, the only thing constant is change! Let’s hope the developers don’t get their hands on Jimmy’s across the street.
