Cinnamon's Deli to join Five Guys and Long John Silver's near northwest Lowe's

WICHITA — A third restaurant is joining Five Guys Burgers and Fries and Long John Silver's Freshside Grille in front of Lowe's near 29th and Maize.

Cinnamon's Deli will open in 2,400 square feet next to Five Guys, which will anchor the south end of the strip center there.

Long John Silver's anchors the north end.

Central Park Place Retail is developing the 8,960-square-foot center.

Brad Saville of Landmark Commercial Real Estate and Christian Ablah of Classic Real Estate are principals in Central Park. Cook Construction is the builder.

They broke ground on the project Wednesday.

At a time that not many strip centers are under construction — and many are sitting empty — Ablah thinks "the exciting tenants that we have with this kind of location" is why he and Saville are able to proceed with theirs.

The center is 81 percent occupied.

There's 1,680 square feet left to lease, and Ablah and Saville are open to either a restaurant or retail.

Look for the new restaurants to open in early 2010.
