Food Carts Coming to Fairview 

Plans are underway to develop a Fairview Food Cart Plaza at the southeast corner of Halsey Street and NE 223rdFood Cart Plaza Design 2 (JPG)Avenue. The name of the development is still to be determined. The Plaza will be anchored by a beer and wine garden court, have outdoor dining and a covered dining area, space for 12 – 16 food carts, incorporate an area for a Farmer’s Market and a stage (entertainment area), have a play area, free public Wi-Fi, signage with public art, restrooms, and a parking lot with landscaping.  The hope is to break ground in April 2021, with an opening day celebration on Labor Day, 2021.

How did we get here? The City signed a 10-year lease for property on the southeast  corner of the intersection of Halsey Street and NE 223rd Avenue for development of a food cart plaza in October 2020. A design/build contract was awarded to P & C  Construction for design and development of the site in early 2021. Phase I, the design, has been completed and we are preparing toFood Cart Plaza Design 1 (JPG)  enter into Phase II, site development. After issuing a Request for Proposal, receiving submissions, and interviewing top candidates, Justin Hwang was recently selected to be the Food Cart Plaza   operator. Mr. Hwang will oversee operations of the Plaza and will run the beer and wine garden court.  

This project is a public, private partnership between the City of  Fairview, the property owner, and the food cart plaza operator. The project is  funded through Fairview’s Urban Renewal Agency. It is  anticipated that revenue from the development will reimburse most, if not all, the initial funding.
