Apologies for the delay in new blog posts for the month of October, I have been travelling out-of-country for pleasure and work and will resume more consistent blog posts in the week of October 24th.
In the meantime, I would like to leave a great link from the Urban Land Institute on the revival of a historic food hall in Warsaw, Poland. ULI has provided a case study on developers purchasing a historic property, refurbishing it, and centering activity around culinary uses. The project officially opened this week, and 118,000 square feet is set aside for restaurants, food stalls, and culinary-based retail endeavors. There is also 54,000 square feet in office space. With 68% of leasable area put towards culinary uses, this project can definitely be defined as a Culinary Oriented Development.
