Noi, a Thai restaurant, will fill the former Typhoon location in the Franklin Crossing building on the corner of Northwest Franklin Avenue and Northwest Bond Street.
“It will be like stepping off Bond Street and into Bangkok," said Darren Powderly, president and partner of Compass Commercial Real Estate Services.
The owners of Noi have two restaurants in the Seattle area called Bai Tong, Powderly said.
He said the new owners signed the lease in May while they were in Bangkok.
“High-quality Thai is successful in Bend," he said. “This is going to be a step above where Typhoon was, and that’s why we did the deal."
Powderly said the restaurant is expected to open in midautumn.
“We are very excited for what an established restaurant will be able to do for that block of downtown," said Chuck Arnold, the executive director of the Downtown Bend Business Association. “Having a restaurant that’s offering similar fares as Typhoon will complete the block and restaurant offerings downtown."
