A newly announced food hall project with outdoor seating is in the works for a shady tree laden plot of land at at 506 S. Mcgee Avenue (Map) in the city of Apopka according to Amanda Rabines at Growthspotter (Paywall).
The 12,500 SF food hall will contain 9,900 SF of space dedicated to 8 to 12 food makers as well as 2,600 SF of space for a brewery, the name of which is still undecided, from the owner of Orange County Brewers.
Rabines says construction is expected to begin on the project in early 2022.
The Apopka project is a rare one in the (in the works) regional food hall scene. When completed it will be one of only five food hall projects that are 100% new construction in the Orlando area region.
Most of the eleven Orlando area food halls in the works are being created inside existing buildings. For example, The Packing District's Southern Box Food Hall will open inside a 1930s era warehouse originally used as an orange crate factory, Bumby Arcade Food Hall is coming to two historic downtown Church Street buildings, and South Orange Provisions Food Hall will take over 10,000 SF of first floor retail space inside a downtown Orlando office building.
The new construction food hall projects include The Hall On The Yard in the Ivanhoe Village district of Orlando, A.G.'s Market in the Horizons West section of Winter Garden, and The Food Factory in the Oviedo on the Park development in Oviedo, and The Gr!eat Gourmet Place in a Kissimmee development called Magic Place at Celebration.
