When you drive past one of Clawson’s most notable and unique businesses, Leon & Lulu on 14 Mile, the building to the west sits vacant.
A former movie theater, the structure is now part of the Leon & Lulu family.
“Plans are definitely in the works,” Leon & Lulu owner Mary Liz Curtin said. “We painted it as soon as we got it, and we’re working on the design right now.”
Leon & Lulu purchased the property next door in 2011 and for several months now residents have wondered what Curtin and her staff were going do with the building.
The wait is over.
“It’s going to be called ‘The Show at Leon & Lulu,'" Curtin said. “We know for sure that there’s going to be coffee served and a bakery of some kind up front. The back, we’re still working on, but it’ll be fun and there will be popcorn.”
Curtin says since acquiring the building some of the original prints were unearthed and many of these original design aspects, such as paint color and plaster details, are certain to be incorporated into 'The Show at Leon & Lulu’s' decor.
Also, there are plans in the works to try and recreate the building's marquee, Curtin added.
Clawson residents can expect to see renovations and construction to the building begin in the spring and early summer months.
Curtin hopes the project will be complete by late summer of 2012.
