New apartments and a café are set to open soon on Lower Greenville.

The businesses are from Duro Hospitality, the group behind Sister, which opened last year in The Grape‘s spot, at 2808 Greenville Ave.

Café Duro, which will be next to Sister, will offer coffee, wine, house-made pasta, pre-cut meats, charcuterie, cheese, pastries, paninis, home goods and more. The café and market is expected to open the first quarter of 2022.

Three apartment units, dubbed Casa Duro, are planned to open above Sister the first quarter of this year. They are available for short- and long-term stays and are the hospitality group’s “first leap into the hotel industry,” according to a press release. Two will have two bedrooms and the other will have one bedroom. All have been fully renovated and are completely furnished.

The rental rates for the apartments have not yet been released, and we don’t have any photos of the apartments. But Corbin and Ross See, two partners of Duro Hospitality, are experienced interior designers. And Benji Homsey, a third member of the group, worked for about 20 years at Hotel ZaZa. With Z Resorts, Homsey focused on the design, branding, experience and ambience of properties.

The two-bedroom apartments are each about 1,200 square feet, and the one-bedroom unit is about 800 square feet. Parking for renters will be available in the lot.

Duro Hospitality also plans to take over the Highland Park Soda Fountain this fall.
