WORTHINGTON - ProfessioNail & Spa is looking to move to a new location on Ray Drive, just south of Subway.

Owners Du Nguyen and Khanh Le have already purchased the lot from McDonald’s and are aiming to build a 3,400-square-foot strip mall that would have space for a tenant.

The Worthington City Council on Monday approved up to $50,000 in site assistance for the business to help pay for the cost of soil remediation needed to get the site ready. The estimated cost is $41,680, but it could cost more or less depending on the depth of the soil.

Jason Brisson, the city’s new economic development director, said site assistance will pay for itself within three-and-a-half years thanks to increased property taxes on the new building.

Mike Johnson of Johnson Builders & Realty said this is just the first phase of the project. The business’s owners eventually want to expand the strip mall west into to a 11,000-square-foot  - or larger - property.

ProfessioNail’s current location on McMillan Street has been closed since Oct. 2 due to water leakage from a malfunctioning spa fixture. The business is scheduled to reopen Wednesday.

The water damage also caused ProfessioNail’s neighbor and the building’s owner - Classy & Sassy - to close for renovations. Classy & Sassy has been closed since Oct. 16 and will likely open later than its goal of Nov. 3.
