What is being built at the corner of South Front and Dock streets?

The long-empty northwest corner of Front and Dock streets, Wilmington, has been approved for a two-story, 3,000-square-foot restaurant, according to Development Services for the city of Wilmington. The project was also reviewed and approved by the Historic Preservation Commission, which reviews all proposed changes to the exterior of structures, demolition of structures, new construction, signage, and changes to the surrounding grounds, including landscaping, in the city’s historic districts. John and Teri Sutton of Ocean Isle Beach own the property. The contractor told city officials that the nearby Dock Street Oyster Bar was going to move into the new building, but that’s the only additional information available right now. We have left a message for the owners and will update when we have details.

UPDATE:

On Sept. 23, a listing for “Newly Constructed Restaurant For Lease – Front and Dock Street, approved for 80 seats, full ABC permits #ILM” showed up on the Twitter account of John Hinnant, executive director of Wilmington Downtown Inc. Click here for the full listing. The proposed tenant canceled plans for the new building, Hinnant said, so the future of the property is uncertain.
