At its May board meeting, Rio Nuevo approved up to $450,000 to renovate the historic Presidio Duplex located next to the Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum. The Tucson Presidio Trust for Historic Preservation has obtained a liquor license and has sought bids for the renovation of approximately 1,400 sqft that can be used for a restaurant/bar, retail or event space. Executive Director of the Presidio museum, Amy Hartmann-Gordon, has been in conversations with neighbors Tucson Museum of Art, La Cocina, El Charro and Downtown Kitchen and Cocktails as partners in the project. 

The project is expected to begin by the fall of 2018 and be completed mid 2019.
