FINANCIAL DISTRICT — The Financial District is getting in on the food hall trend.
When supermarket City Acres Market opens at the base of landmarked 70 Pine St., a slate of food vendors — including Artichoke Pizza and Vanessa's Dumplings — will also launch their own counters inside, according to a City Acres advertisement posted on 70 Pine.
City Acres, formerly known as Urban Market, is set to open in March 2017.
The upscale market, which has a location in Williamsburg, will take up about 13,000 square feet in the building, with a ground floor and basement level space.
Other food hall vendors are focused on veggies, including cold pressed juice spot JuiceBrothers, vegan eatery Cinnamon Snail and Beyond Sushi — which makes vegetarian and vegan sushi rolls and other meatless Japanese dishes.
Beyond Sushi uses veggies for its sushi. Beyond Sushi
Art Deco skyscraper 70 Pine St., recently underwent a multimillion-dollar conversion from an office tower into an apartment building, which also houses the Q&A Hotel.
City Acres Market and the owners of 70 Pine did not immediately return a request for comment.
The City Acres food hall joins numerous food halls that have popped across the city, including the Pennsy at Penn Station, Urban Space Vanderbilt near Grand Central, the Great Northern Food Hall inside Grand Central and Gotham West in Hell's Kitchen. Downtown, City Acres Joins Battery Park City's Hudson Eats.
