Fire Mountain demo begins

Published 9:43pm Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Demolition work started recently at the former Fire Mountain restaurant on North Main Street.

The lot where the eatery, which closed in September, was located will be turned into a 25,000-square-foot retail center, said Troy Parker, a leasing agent for Cushman & Wakefield Thalhimer.

One building, approximately 20,000 square feet in area, will be located about where the restaurant was, Parker said. A second building will be set closer to the street.

Construction on the first building should be complete around April 30, and the other should be completed about the end of June, Parker said.

One lease has been signed with Sprint, and about four or five others are in final negotiations, Parker added. About 10 to 12 spots ultimately will be available.

Parker said he envisions two to three restaurants mixed with other retailers selling hard and soft goods.

The property is owned by Michael D. Sifen Inc. under the name “Suffolk Main Street Shoppes” and was purchased for $2 million.

    I’m excited about the shops…but I have to agree with everyone below…can we get something new? Maybe a Sweet Frog…or Chipotle or something?

    It’ll be a mattress place, a nail salon, cell phone store, and some crap-tastic restaurant/chinese takeout.

    Welcome to Suffolk.

    A Dairy Queen would be nice. Especially since Suffolk had one, but it burned down in 1995 and never rebuilt.

      Oh, I’m so waiting for cell phone store along with another mattress store! It’s never anything we really need, always something useless! I’m surprised that Walgreens hasn’t decided to move there! How abt a GOOD QUALITY resturant….or Baskin Roberts? Please quit with the same old same old stuff.
