North Market May be Expanding to Dublin
Come 2020, there could be a second North Market
Bridge Park residents, shoppers and diners could have their very own North Market come 2020. There’s already been a fair share of restaurants and retail options that have opened or will open in the development, and a grocer was the next consideration, says Matt Starr, Director of Development for Crawford Hoying, the developer behind Bridge Park. But, he says, a change in the marketplace as it relates to grocers, including Amazon’s recent purchase of Whole Foods as well as the number of grocers near Bridge Park, necessitated something a little different than the run-of-the-mill grocery store.
“Another key factor was that we always wanted Bridge Park to be something different,” Starr says, “and this provided that opportunity.”
The Dublin North Market is planned to be similar to the downtown original. Roughly the same size, it’ll span 34,000 square feet on a single floor, occupying the Block D parking garage on Longshore Street. Construction has already begun on the garage, and, if the market is approved by the city of Dublin, it’ll open there in 2020.
