Occupancy at Lynmark Group’s upcoming Wheeling Town Center has reached 83 percent, with two new leases closing days ago. Local restaurants Eggsperience and Meat & Potato Eatery are about to occupy 4,000 square feet at the soon-to-be-completed shopping center, joining retailers such as CMX Cinemas, Starbucks and Mia’s Cantina. NKF represented the landlord in the transactions.
The new location will mark the 9th restaurant for Eggsperience, which has been offering lunch and breakfast options for Chicago customers for 25 years. For Meat & Potato Eatery, having just opened its doors in 2015, this will be the 3rd site. Both restaurants will provide outdoor seating.
“As a local restaurant operating in the Chicagoland area for over two decades, we are eager to join this dynamic space. The assortment of retail provides a thoughtful mix of dining and leisure that we fit nicely into,” said Peter Sakoufakis, owner of Eggsperience, in a prepared statement.
Lynmark broke ground on the shopping center in late spring this year and set the delivery date for early 2019. The company is also working on approvals for a five-story residential property that will be located just steps from the plaza. ONE Wheeling Town Center is expected to encompass 300 luxury units.
