Southwest and Asian fusion restaurant Takosushi will open a Columbia location this fall in The Arcade building.
The Georgia-based restaurant features an eclectic menu including sushi, potstickers, nachos, quesadillas, soups and salads. Takosushi has additional S.C. locations in Aiken and Greenville.
Trinity Partners’ Rob Lapin, director of brokerage services, represented Takosushi in the lease of the 2,533-square-foot space in the downtown building at 1332 Main St., home to tenants including Swanson’s Deli and Odd Bird Books.
“People are hungry — for both interesting food and unique experiences,” Lapin said in a news release. “The city of Columbia has a thriving food scene, and it’s not slowing down. Takosushi is a welcome addition to the city and brings something new to the table, offering an adventurous, creative menu and atmosphere.”
Takosushi closed an Assembly Street location in November 2019, citing unsafe building conditions.
A post on the restaurant's website featured a "Breaking News" image with a comment reading "It's happening!" and featuring hashtags including #wereback.
Northeast retail development reaches 100% occupancy
A new retail development at 2708 Clemson Road has reached 100% occupancy.
The 8,225-square-foot, multi-tenant retail building includes East Bay Deli, Pacific Dental Services and Alpha Nail Spa. The property, originally 2.7 acres, was divided into two retail parcels, with 1.1 acres sold in 2020 for the development of National Tire and Battery. NAI Columbia developed the multi-tenant building on the remaining 1.6 acres.
“This was a great project that took several years to come to fruition,” Ben Kelly, senior broker and principal at NAI Columbia, said in a news release. “This development required collaboration with the adjoining apartment developer, which was critical to both projects being developed.”
