An entity registered to Weidong "Wilson" Wang, the owner of Baba Sushi in Worcester, has purchased three parcels of land along Shrewsbury Street, according to the Worcester South District Registry of Deeds.

The purchases, which closed Dec. 7, include 395 and 393 Shrewsbury St., which make up a 0.3-acre parking lot, and 397 Shrewsbury St., which is a 3,000-square-foot triple decker. The properties are located between the former Donut Cafe and a computer repair shop across from a plaza with Anytime Fitness and Little Caesars Pizza.

The lots at 395 and 393 Shrewsbury St. were included on a deed for a sale price $447,500, per the registry of deeds, and 397 Shrewsbury St. was included on a separate deed for the same price of $447,500. The triple decker at 397 Shrewsbury St. last sold for $268,000, according to the City of Worcester assessor's data.

The three properties were sold by Tommaso DiGioia and Kathryn DiGioia as trustees for K&T Realty Trust. The DiGioias also own 405-407 Shrewsbury St., which is the site of Worcester Foreign Motors Inc.

Wang is the owner of Baba Sushi, which has locations in Sturbridge and Bristol as well as Worcester, and a Worcester hot pot restaurant called Chuan Shabu. In October, he purchased a 360-acre farm in Hardwick for $2.6 million

"Wilson loves Worcester," Sara Bloomfield, general manager at Baba Sushi, said in a phone interview. She explained the restaurateur has had his sights on the Shrewsbury Street property for a while, but has yet to finalize a decision about its use.
