Hughes Investment, the company developing BridgeWay Station in Mauldin, announced Feb. 16 the mixed-use development will welcome one new restaurant and two new businesses.
The new additions include:
- El Guapo Mexican restaurant
- Le Chic Nails Lounge
- The Works at BridgeWay – a co-working space
El Guapo, an upscale Mexican restaurant created by serial entrepreneur, investor and dealmaker Dean White of Charlotte, North Carolina, will occupy 4,500 square feet of ground floor retail space on BridgeWay Boulevard. The space will feature indoor and outdoor dining.
White also opened Fiore Lounge, an American cocktail, fine wine and tapas restaurant, in Charlotte’s Ballantyne Village in 2017.
“We are very excited to welcome El Guapo to the ‘Dining District’ at BridgeWay Station” said Hughes Investments Owner and President Phil Hughes. “My whole family loves Mexican food and we’re very excited about their incredible plans for BridgeWay. They are a perfect fit with their exciting atmosphere and delicious food.”
Joining El Guapo in the development is Le Chic Nails Lounge. The business will move into 2,850 square feet of ground floor retail space on BridgeWay Station’s Main Street.
The nail salon will offer a variety of services, including:
- Specialized nail art
- Waxing services
Le Chic Nails Lounge is owned by Ashley Tran, who also operates Rosy Nails and Spa on North Pleasantburg Drive in Greenville.
Rounding out the trio of new businesses is The Works at BridgeWay, which will occupy 2,000 square feet of ground floor retail space adjacent to the development’s residential lobby.
The co-working space will be managed by Hughes Investments and will offer memberships to both residents of BridgeWay Station and nonresidents, but priority will be granted to on-site apartment residents.
The Works will feature:
- Four private offices
- Community high-top tables
- Community banquettes
- Private office room
- Onsite kitchenette
“At BridgeWay, we’re building a community,” said Hughes. “We’re thrilled for our exciting new restaurants, and we’re equally excited for these two new spaces – Le Chic Nails Lounge and The Works at BridgeWay – that will serve the residents and community in different ways. We see these tenants not only as amenities for our community members, but also as ways to keep our tenant mix well-rounded, serving a multitude of desires and needs.”
