Ribbon cutting at La Maison. (David Taffet/Dallas Voice) AIDS Services of Dallas held a dedication ceremony for its new property on Lancaster Street in Oak Cliff on World AIDS Day.
The property will be known as La Maison in honor of founding CEO Don Maison, who passed away earlier this year. Councilman Chad West and Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Omar Narvaez were on hand for the ribbon cutting.
The property is in West’s Oak Cliff district. Renovating the property ran into several snags. The original renovation of the complex was set to begin just weeks before the onset of the pandemic.
Then once work began, one of the two buildings was destroyed in a fire. Work finally began earlier this year. The building was divided into 16 units — four two-bedroom, four one-bedroom and eight efficiency units.
