LELAND, NC (WWAY) — Construction is now underway on a new shopping center in Leland.
Today, a groundbreaking took place on Ocean Gate Plaza on New Pointe Boulevard.
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.
