VACANT BROADLANDS BANK BUILDING BECOMING A CHINESE RESTAURANT

The former Wachovia Bank branch that sits at the corner of Truro Parish Drive and Chickacoan Drive has been empty for years and years, but now, the building is under renovation and will soon open as a Chinese restaurant.

Good Fortune, a small Chinese restaurant at the Junction Plaza shopping center in Ashburn Farm is moving a couple of miles south to the Broadlands and the new spot next to a Sunoco and a Dunkin’ Donuts.

Good Fortune’s current location in the Junction Plaza shopping center.

Staff says the menu — featuring all the dishes you’ve come to expect at a Chinese restaurant — will stay the same. Good Fortune hopes to open in the new location sometime in January or February 2017.

The Burn can’t help but wonder what this means for Café Opera, another small Chinese restaurant in the same small Broadlands shopping center. Usually, landlords don’t place two restaurants with similar types of cuisine so close to each other.
