75 Food Halls in America: The Growing Mixed-Use Real Estate Development Trend

75 Food Halls in America: The Growing Mixed-Use Real Estate Development TrendWhile the US food hall trend may have started in New York, it’s now sweeping across America. With major food-focused real estate developments such as Eataly and chef Todd English’s Plaza Food Hall opening in New York in 2010, food halls area launching in other US cities from Atlanta to Seattle.

This gourmet, casual dining model of food halls and gourmet markets are even being adopted in sporting stadiums and airports, and often, food halls are developed in repurposed former industrial buildings or other local architectural hotspots making for unique and exciting restaurant concept opportunities.

Similar to food trucks, mixed-use developments that feature food halls and public markets offer local restaurants an alternative to an expensive brick-and-mortar location. As for consumers, they typically offer a wide range of quality and affordable dining options. Additionally, gourmet markets and food halls tend to support millennials’ increasing interest in locally-sourced, authentic food.

With the growing mixed-use, food-focused urban projects, especially over the last few years, commercial real estate development firm Cushman & Wakefield estimates that there may be as many as 200 major food hall projects throughout the country by 2019.
