Tin Tin Box and Noodles will close its doors Oct. 30 in uptown Charlotte.

The popular Japanese restaurant at 101 North Tryon is scouting out new locations and is considering NoDa, manager Emmanual Cortez said this week. Tin Tin doesn’t expect to reopen for another four to six months, Cortez added.

Tin Tin’s menu features an array of sushi, pho noodle soups, rice entrees and spring rolls. The Trade and Tryon spot is Tin Tin’s only location, and it’s closing its doors there because the landlord isn’t renewing the lease, Cortez said.

The building, called 101 Independence Center, was sold this past spring for just under $108 million to a corporation affiliated with Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers.

Preliminary plans submitted in May show the new owners may plan to renovate the building’s ground floor, where Tin Tin is. The project would bring “expansion of retail space into the existing atrium” and add about 6,000 square feet of space to the property.

A Cornerstone representative could not be reached for comment.
