After the Toy Factory and Biscuit Company Lofts created an instant neighborhood, the growing population of the Arts District revealed that there was no place to buy quality groceries without using a car to drive to a large supermarket. The developer entity decided to convert an all metal shed in a parking lot into the first neighborhood green grocer. Although the size of the population did not justify its own market, the concept of Urban Radish (our original tenant) fit seamlessly into the community’s need for a local and organic food destination. Urban Radish functioned for years as a semi-official neighborhood hub; a place to meet friends and neighbors on Wednesday’s Jazz Night, grocery shop, or hold a meeting. These days, we are eagerly awaiting the opening of Hank’s Organic!
