A section of historic Main Street in downtown Fort Mill will be renovated this fall to make way for a new restaurant and brewery.
Will Bigham – who owns the Pizza Peel, Flying Biscuit Café and the Improper Pig – will be leasing over 2,900 square feet of space for a restaurant concept, according to a statement Tuesday from Kuester Commercial Real Estate. The space was formerly home to a photography and knife shop.
Kuester is working to find a tenant for the remaining two spaces that occupy over 3,100 square feet on Main and Confederate streets, the firm said. A letter of intent has been sent for a brewery.
The upfit of the historic downtown strip on the 200 block on Main Street, built at the turn of the 20th century, should wrap up by late 2016/early 2017, and at that time the spaces will be released to the tenants, Kuester said.
Kuester is also repurposing 13,000 square feet of office and retail space at 100 Main Street, formerly known as the Old Centre Theatre, the firm said. The project is expected to wrap up in the second quarter of 2017.
“We are very excited to open up a restaurant and bring some of our energy to the community of Fort Mill. It is exciting for us to open in a spot that has history behind it,” Bigham, the restaurateur, said in the statement.
