Leland’s Ocean Gate Plaza Fully Leased
Hank Adams and Allan Fox of Sun Coast Partners, the leasing agents for the newly built Ocean Gate Plaza, have announced that the retail center is now fully occupied. The last three available spaces in Ocean Gate Plaza, located at 1132 New Pointe Blvd in Leland, NC, were recently leased. Construction on the center, which has a total of six units, was completed in August 2018. The owner of Ocean Gate Plaza, Yu Hang Wang, brings a local vibe to the center. He and his wife own and operate the recently opened Hibachi Bistro restaurant in the center, as well as other locations in Wilmington. Ocean Gate Plaza provided the couple with the perfect opportunity to own their first retail investment property.
Currently, the first two tenants, Dunkin Donuts and Bridgewater Wines, are open and operating within Ocean Gate Plaza. Dunkin Donuts was the first company to lease space in the plaza and brings a widely recognized brand to the retailers. Bridgewater Wines is Leland’s only dedicated wine store. They feature weekly wine tastings, live music and a new wine explorers club.
Of the newly leased units, Michelakis Smile and Implant Dentistry practice plans to open in October. The owner, Tony Michelakis, has been practicing dentistry for 22 years in Brunswick county and “has a way of providing what the patient truly desires instead of pushing unnecessary, unwanted treatment”. Dr. Michelakis will be “providing superior dental care in a warm and caring environment”. Hickman Pharmacy, the first and only compounding pharmacy in Leland, is planning on opening by August. In addition to prescriptions, the pharmacy will offer natural products, CBD oil, and a delivery service. Wes Hickman is looking forward to opening his own pharmacy in the Leland community after working for a large chain drug store for years. He wants to bring customer service back to the drug store business and treat his clients as more than a prescription. Leland Tobacco, a store for tobacco enthusiasts, will also be occupying one of the recently leased units.
