Squares Restaurant space in downtown Ann Arbor is put up for lease
The restaurant closed in June for what it described as “summer vacation,” but the landlord's decision to pursue new tenants for the space suggests that Squares is likely closed for good.
The restaurant's former website, squaresrestaurant.com, is also gone. A call placed to Squares today was not answered.
The 2,800-square-foot space is listed with Bluestone Realty Advisors. The building is owned by the Oxford Companies, with other tenants including Afternoon Delight, Antelope Antiques & Coins and Bella Rosie.
Previous tenants in the restaurant space include Yoshi's and Dinersty.
Squares opened in December 2010 on the block between South Fourth Avenue and South Fifth Avenue in the Liberty Plaza building. The restaurant served sandwiches on square flatbread, and also offered items like omelets and salads.
At the time of opening, Scott Nail, director of operations for Squares Restaurant, said that the restaurant would likely open a second location in Canton. That never happened.
Along with Squares closing, there have been several changes on East Liberty Street in downtown Ann Arbor recently.
A new business, Bongs & Thongs, is set to open at 119 E. Liberty Street in July.
Big Boy's @burger at 505 E. Liberty St. also closed in June, placing the 3,185-square-foot space on the leasing market.
