Seems like Tampa Bay just can't get enough of food halls.
With Armature Works and Hall on Franklin holding it down in Tampa Heights, The Joinery coming along in Lakeland, as well as Sundial's forthcoming food hall transformation in 2020, it is safe to say we are a foodie hub.
To add to our growing list, a project by Miami’s PTM Partners referred to as 'The EDGE Collective,' is set to take over the Furnish Me Vintage building and a surface parking lot, at 1246 Central Ave. (across the street from Ferg's Sports Bar).
The project includes a 161-room Marriott Moxy Hotel, a 16,500-square-foot co-work space by Station House, retail space, and a third concept by Hall on Franklin founder, Jamal Wilson, 'Hall on Central.'
The article mentioned that tentative debut is set for 2022 of the "first phase" of the EDGE Collective.
We can only assume the new food hall will give its fellow Central Ave. residents like Hawkers, Baum Avenue Market and Bodega a run for their money. Hall on Central is set to take over the lower two floors of the Furnish Me Vintage building, offering up 12,000-square-foot space for diners to take advantage of the full bar and vendors serving up a variety of cuisines for breakfast, lunch and dinner service.
The hotel has plans to host an outdoor space called “the Garden,” that will connect with the project’s other components including, “the Sanctuary,” a third-floor outdoor wellness and meditation retreat, and a rooftop pool, bar and lounge. PTM Partners also hint at the food hall partnering with the Moxy Hotel to not only cater to the hotel guests but to utilize the 7,000-square-foot Garden outdoor space for weddings and other events, as the food hall is connected and offers up picturesque views of the strip.
No word on if they'll keep the mural by Miami-based artist Evoca1, but more details to come as construction begins.@cl_tampabay on Twitter to get the most up-to-date news + views. Subscribe to our newsletter, too.
