A Wilmington property listed in site plans for a Panda Express restaurant has been sold for $1.48 million, according to New Hanover County deed records.
The previous Tilted Kilt & Pub Eatery location at 11 Van Campen Blvd. was sold to CFT NV Developments LLC, an affiliate of Panda Restaurant Group, according to the Journal Sentinel.
Panda Restaurant Group is the parent company of Panda Express, Panda Inn and Hibachi-San.
The seller of the property is listed as Maa Ambe Wilmington LLC. Hiren Patel is identified as the managing member of that company.
Panda Express Inc. submitted site plans to the city of Wilmington in January showing a 2,600 square-foot Panda Express with indoor and patio seating and a drive-thru.
The plans were prepared by Ingenium Enterprises from Tampa, Florida.
Panda Express is a California-based chain restaurant serving American Chinese cuisine.
The proposal would replace Tilted Kilt & Pub Eatery, a Celtic-themed restaurant and bar located at the corner of Market Street and Van Campen Boulevard.
Officials said in a previous story
that they hope to open the restaurant by the end of 2019.
