1 MIN READ - Get ready, Chicago—yet another food hall is joining a growing roster in the Loop. Urbanspace is set to open an as yet unnamed food hall at 15 W. Washington St. (formerly the F.W. Woolworth flagship store and most recently a Walgreens) late this fall. This is the same company opening a 14,000-square-foot food hall as part of the Willis Tower expansion, but that hall can be expected later—sometime in 2020.
The 12,000-square-foot space at State and Washington will feature more than 20 vendors, none of which have been announced, but most of which will feature Chicago chefs.
“We are thrilled to be in Chicago, one of the greatest food cities in the world,” said Eldon Scott, President of Urbanspace. “We look forward to bringing a diverse group of talented chefs and smaller food entrepreneurs from Chicago’s many neighborhoods to the downtown area. Each of our food halls is unique to the neighborhood where they are located. 15 W. Washington will have a different vibe than Willis Tower. Both locations will be places where creativity and community can thrive in beautiful spaces with some of the most talented chefs in the city serving great food!”
These Urbanspace food halls join Forum 55, Revival, Wells St. Market, and Latinicity in the Loop food hall boom.
