STERLING – Two spots in the first block of East Fourth Street downtown are undergoing major construction work in advance of two new businesses moving in.

As it was preparing leases for the building, the Greater Sterling Development Corp., which owns the the 1920s-era structures, discovered the exterior walls had no foundation, and for safety’s sake, is taking corrective action, Executive Director Heather Sotelo said.

She wouldn’t release specifics yet, but a new hair salon (Tangles no longer is open at the site) and a walk-in-walk-out restaurant will open in the two spots June 1, Sotelo said.

More details will be available in about a month, she said.

The development group saved as much of the original brick as possible, so the facades still will match the other buildings in the block, which are behind Sterling Theatre and which house, among other things, the Sterling Barber Shop.
