New updates on the first dining tenant confirmed for the Corner Building on Main Street. The former Corner Store Furniture Co. is currently being turned into 10,784-square-foot retail and dining hub. Tacos Huevos plans to occupy 1,764 square feet, operating a restaurant with a bar and access to a 463-square-foot outdoor seating area.

California-based restaurateur Chris Pike will oversee the casual spot, described by his real estate broker Ryan Misaresh as a "quick-serve, taquéria-style restaurant with a few gastronomical twists." Craft beer and wine are also part of the plan.

Sitting across the street from a more formal Mexican restaurant, Casa Don Juan, Pike has a bold plan to operate from 6 a.m. to 3 a.m. Confident locals will take to the almost round the clock operating hours, Pike explained to Misresh:

"I’ve seen this kind of hipification before," says Pike. "It reminds me of Hollywood or Silver Lake before the renaissance there. Young artists will find a place to create, and most of them can’t afford to do what they do in the higher rent districts. I’ve been a part of that kind of creative energy, and I’d love to be a part of it again."

Tacos Huevos is aiming for an August debut.
