A Mediterranean restaurant is the latest tenant headed to the Highland Strip.
Petra Cafe signed a lease for 1,000 square feet of space at 547 S. Highland St. Construction on the build-out will begin soon, and the restaurant should open in early 2017.
“We are just excited that the Highland Strip is filling up with a great variety of tenants that we feel will not only serve the student populations, but also the residents in the area,” said Ciara Neill, director of marketing for Loeb Properties.
The buildings that comprise the Highland Strip – which technically span from The Bluff, a music venue and Cajun-inspired restaurant at 535 S. Highland St., to iCon Clothing at 575 S. Highland St. – are owned by Loeb Properties. Four tenant bays are still available for lease, including: 551 S. Highland St., with 3,400 square feet; 549 S. Highland St., with 2,800 square feet; 565 S. Highland St., with 1,200 square feet; and 571 S. Highland St., with 1,300 square feet.
