The businesses that have announced they are coming include Bridgewater Wines, Dunkin Donuts, and Hibachi Bistro.

Ocean Gate Plaza developer and Hibachi Bistro owner Yu Hang Wang says this is a great chance for businesses to expand in the area.

“It’s a good opportunity for us. This area is expanding. It’s probably the fastest in NC right now,” said Wang. “And it’s a good opportunity to be here first, before I guess everything else starts. And it’s a good opportunity for us to bring in a Hibachi Bistro to let people know what we’re about.”

Wong says there will be a total of six spaces at the plaza. He hopes they can get more tenants to sign leases.

The stores that are coming are expected to open by May.
