Subway on Main Street Closes; Commercial Buildings for Sale

About one year after a welcome reopening, the Subway sandwich shop on Main Street once again has closed, officials confirmed. The made-to-order sandwich shop appears to have been empty since last week and the commercial space it had occupied is to be leased while 64 Main St. itself is for sale, along with a neighboring building, according to officials with Cushman & Wakefield, which is handling the sale (see more information here). The properties—they house Chef Prasad restaurant as well as New Canaan mainstay Ching’s Table—are owned by a limited liability company whose principal is a Southport man, according to records on file with the Connecticut Secretary of the State. 

It isn’t clear why Subway closed. Public relations officials with the national chain could not immediately be reached for comment.

‘This Is a Wake-Up Call’: Telephone Co. Building, Parking Lot Downtown For Sale

The owner of a prominent Main Street building and adjacent lot that the town of New Canaan leases for sorely needed parking spaces is selling the property. The brick ‘Telephone Co. Building’ at 140 Main St. has been owned by successive communications companies for decades, most recently by Frontier, and now is being offered by New York-based Cushman & Wakefield. The .6-acre property is being divided in the sale between the structure and parking area, jeopardizing New Canaan’s use of the 18-space permitted lot.
