You may recall that in May of last year there were preliminary plans to build Cantina Del Rose, a Mexican restaurant, in the space next to Best Western Plus in Tupelo.
Well, new plans have been submitted, and it’s no longer going to be called Cantina Del Rose; instead, it will be called Mi Pueblo.
The 6,315-square-foot restaurant will accommodate up to 255 people.
Mi Pueblo also will have a bar with 11 barstools and seating for 24 in the bar area. A buffet line also is in the plans.
Meanwhile, a little farther south on North Gloster Street, more retail space is under construction.
We first told you about the expansion in April, but the work has finally begun on the building that’s now home to Planet Fitness and Whole Family Nutrition & Market . Another roughly 15,000 square feet of space is being added.
Building owner V.M. Cleveland said he has no specific tenants in mind, but is willing to subdivide the space as needed.
The original 24,000-square-foot building was the former long-time home to Magnolia Bingo, but it was heavily damaged in the April 2014 tornado.
