Construction at the Huntington Station shopping center is seen last month.
The Huntington Station shopping center on North Kings Highway will soon be adding a Dunkin’ Donuts and a Subway sandwich shop.
Construction is currently underway to add space for the two new tenants at the shopping center, which sits across the street from the Huntington Metro station. The estimated opening date for each business is late spring 2018, according to Michael McGregor, executive vice president of leasing and acquisitions for Dwoskin, the development firm that owns Huntington Station.
The addition of the two national chains is the latest good news for Huntington Station, which was already at 100 percent capacity. A Bob & Edith’s Diner opened there in August, filling what had been the last open space in the shopping center, and has proven to be popular addition, McGregor said.
Huntington Station has become a more attractive destination for businesses for a variety of factors, McGregor said. The planned construction of new apartment developments in the Huntington area, the proximity to the Metro, a strong local economy and the right tenant mix have all contributed to the center’s recent boom.
“I think all the positives that have happened around there have been helpful,” said McGregor. “The community is ecstatic about [the new additions].”
