Brighton lost its main downtown restaurant when the Japanese bistro and steakhouse Sagano closed in January, but new owners on the Main Street building plan to renovate the site into several new storefronts that could eventually create new shopping and restaurant opportunities.

Local real estate broker Todd Buckley is a partner in a newly formed limited liability corporation called Mill Pond Centennial Building, which acquired the building at 312, 314 and 316 W. Main St.

“The property will again be divided into three storefronts,” Buckley said, adding that construction will begin in the next few months.

Until the 1980s, the building housed a D&C store, when it was converted into three shop windows, which for many years occupied various businesses.

When Sagana opened Brighton in 2009, the 7,700-square-foot building was transformed into a single enterprise.
