William Deeb is smiling somewhere. The College Avenue building that housed his women’s hat shop for 40 years, and in recent years was home to two restaurants, is getting a total makeover.

The building at 222-224 E. College Avenue, now dubbed College Station, is getting a facelift by its new owners, the Southern Strategy Group, a lobbying firm. Two eateries, a restaurant/bar and a noodle bar, will occupy the street level. The second floor will become leased office space and a three-bedroom apartment, which will be used by out-of-town members of the Southern Strategy Group.
