Westmont Building to South Highland
April 5th, 2016, Updated November 6, 2021
Town Center: Arlington Heights
Next to the Westmont Shopping Center (which is in the process of being replaced) is a short strip of businesses. This strip is actually four buildings. The first one is the Westmont Professional Building, which houses Vaporfi at 3219, a vapor tasting bar and the Thai Square restaurant at 3217. Vaporfi is a fairly recent additional to the Pike but Thai Square has been at this location for many years. There are also a number of other businesses some of which are medical, that are behind and above it at 3019 & 3017. They can be accessed via a door that is to the west of Vaporfi
The next building 3215 has two business, Mimosa Nails and the Medial Building with Dr. Chrea Siphath MD, Office suite 103. The the following building also has two businesses 3213: Arlington Physical Center & Discount Tobacco.
Right after the strip are two houses. I think that these originally were private homes. The first is at 3207 is home to the Panda Bowl a Chinese restaurant and City Kabob a Curry House which is at, 3205. The next house lists the Greens & Teff Cafe Ethopean and plant based food at 3203. 3201 lists MT taxes and Psychic of Arlington. There has been a large turnover of tenants in the second house.
Eska a restaurant and Hookah Lounge is at 3111 and will not be serving alcohol. At the moment the interior is still being remodeled.
It replaces a number of restaurants which had numberous problems including shootings. More information on previous restaurants below.
Across the street is Audi of Arlington at 3200.
The buildings that include 3201 through 3215 were all built in 1939 each building is a duplex. In the fifties at least one of them had a garden with a white picket fence. At later dates extensions were added, some in the back the others in the front, the only one that does not have an extension is 3203 - 3201. 3205 - 3207 had the extensions added to the back of the building behind 3205. The duplex for 3209 (Good Fortune) and 3211 (tMoble) only has the extension on the front of 3211.
TMobile's east wall ends at the center of Good Fortune and you can see that the roof of Good Fortune extends to the western edge of 3211. Next door another section was also added to the front-of the duplex that houses 3213 and 3215.
The building at 3019-3017 opened in 1939. Although the building resembles the other duplexes it is slightly different in that the entrances are higher and required steps. The roof has also been raised. The main entrance to the businesses in the back and above is at the back of the extension on the west side of the building. The Westmont Building which is the extension in front of the original building was built in 1950
. The Westmont Professional Center includes the original building.
3217, 3215, 3213
Tai Square restaurant has been at 3217 for many years. The next building, 3215 - 3213 has housed a numbers of businesses but quite often they have been vacant. TMoble replaced the Hair Cuttery which in turn moved to Penrose Square. at some point City Kabob & Curry House moved to 3007 and was replaced by Family Kabobs
Late in 2016 the business changed hands. It became an Ethiopian Restaurant called the Purple Lounge. The Purple Louge also continued to have problems. There were a number of shooting incidents on the property. September 1, 2020 their alcohol license was temporarily suspended. They went out of business in 2021.
