A neigh­bor­hood cof­fee bar and bot­tle shop called The Hob­by­ist will open in a few months at 2100 North David­son St., an old ware­house that’s been ren­o­vated next to Cordelia Park in Villa Heights.

The Hob­by­ist, owned by hus­band-and-wife duo Bryson and Julie Wood­side, will have spe­cialty cof­fee from Counter Cul­ture, in ad­di­tion to a se­lec­tion of lo­cal and re­gional craft beers on tap and wine by the glass. Its bot­tle shop will also have a carry-out se­lec­tion of lo­cal craft beer, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment from LPA Urban, the firm leas­ing the build­ing.

The shop’s in­te­rior will feature “a vin­tage in­dus­trial feel” dec­o­rated with cus­tom-made wood­work­ing pieces cre­ated by Bryson Wood­side, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment.

The Hob­by­ist will be in a 2,600-square-foot space in the new de­vel­op­ment, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment. LPA Urban, a divi­sion of Lat Purser & As­so­ciates, re­de­vel­oped the two build­ings on the site into 18,000 square feet of com­mer­cial space.

The Hob­by­ist is ex­pected to open in late spring or early sum­mer.

It joins a grow­ing list of lo­cal es­tab­lish­ments com­ing to the 2100 NoDa de­vel­op­ment, in­clud­ing Pho @ NoDa, Ebb & Flow Move­ment Stu­dio and Stel­lar Den­tal. The de­vel­op­ment is in a rapidly chang­ing neigh­bor­hood that’s close to the 25th Street light rail sta­tion and other pop­u­lar re­tail­ers, in­clud­ing Free Range Brew­ing and Amelie’s French Bakery & Café.

And nearby, al­most 500 new apart­ments and a new, cre­ative of­fice space in an old mill are un­der­way for sites fac­ing each other at North David­son Street and Jor­dan Place.

“With its em­pha­sis on lo­cal and re­gional craft pur­vey­ors, The Hob­by­ist will be an ex­cit­ing new neigh­bor­hood gath­er­ing place and a great ad­di­tion to the re­tail mix at 2100 NoDa,” said James Craig of LPA Urban.
