D’vine move clears way for big project

Premier Properties has taken another step toward its ambitious plan for Woodfield Crossing. The company has a deal to relocate D’vine A Wine Bar from an existing retail building on the Woodfield property to another building it owns. EchelonD’vine is moving into the former home of Cibo Italian restaurant in the Echelon (northwest of 82nd Street and Allisonville Road, pictured here). The wine bar began working on the space this week and will take a total of 5,500 square feet on the first floor and mezzanine. The old 3,200-square-foot location will remain open until the new space is available. Premier plans to raze the former home of D’vine as part of a redevelopment project that calls for a 5,000-seat theater, hundreds of condos and more than a million square feet of office and retail space. The owner of D’vine, Bennet Ackerman, said he’d move into the new project “in a heartbeat” if Premier offers the opportunity.

A D’vine bonus: The wine bar also is working on a deal to open a new location in downtown Carmel.
