Coffee shop, gallery planned in Lincoln Park

An art gallery and coffee shop are coming to the corner of 23rd Avenue West and Superior Street in Duluth later this summer.

“We’re putting a coffee shop and art gallery where the pop-up used to be,” said Michelle LeBeau, executive director at the American Indian Community Housing Organization, which owns the building.

AICHO bought the former corner store, which still includes a laundromat and once housed a hair salon, in 2015. A pop-up gallery and other events have been hosted there in the past, but the new venture will be a permanent addition to the growing neighborhood.

Long-term plans for 2301 W. Superior St. include restoring the third floor of the building and creating 18 affordable studio apartments. That’s still a few years out, LeBeau said.
