[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he 10,249 sq. feet development on the corner of Hickory and Welch streets will be a six or seven suite shopping center that has already booked Viet Bites, Sushi Café and Seoul Wings and Beer as tenants, said project manager Phillip Curran.

Curran expects the stores to be open by July and estimated the center would bring 40 jobs to the area. Curran said the schematics are for a six-suite center, but the construction group is considering cutting one of the suites in half to make a seventh suite.

Despite recently turning both Hickory and Welsh into one-lane roads, local businesses and residents say they don’t mind the construction. Lucky Lou’s owner Lou Delaney said business wasn’t affected because they don’t work at night and construction hasn’t cut off access to parking.

Computer science sophomore Nicholas Crain, who has lived in the houses on Welch across from the lot for almost two years, said the construction started to affect traffic negatively but has been mostly harmless.

“Before the cones, traffic wasn’t bad,” Crain said. “The noise doesn’t bother me. Having lived off major roads all my life, that may just be my bias.”

Crain was happy when he learned it was new eating spots moving in next door.
