SOUTHINGTON — Five businesses are slated to open this summer in a year-old plaza on West Street.
Developer Mark Lovley said the new tenants for 1095 West St. are a takeout restaurant specializing in Polish food, a physical therapy center, a national mortgage company, a sushi restaurant, and a chiropractic office. All have signed leases, he added.
“[The businesses] all will be moved in and open by the end of July this year,” Lovley said.
The plaza, near Corporate Drive, is already home to Silk Nail Salon, Southington Orthodontics and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, a standalone restaurant in the parking lot. An adjacent Marriott Courtyard hotel opened in Nov. 2018.
Lovley said it’s been a year since he began leasing spaces in the plaza. He said Koshi Sushi will be the first of the new tenants to open, probably in June.
Owner Taho Lee said the restaurant will offer sushi and Korean cuisine. Lee, who currently works in a Japanese restaurant, he is excited to open his own restaurant. Interior construction still needs to be finished, he said. He is also busy planning the menu and choosing table settings.
“I wanted to open a restaurant years ago,” Lee said. “It takes a long time….now I have a restaurant.”
