First the Meatpacking District, then the world.

Well, okay, actually just Lower Manhattan and the Bronx.

Chris Reda, owner of Gansevoort Market, is planning to open additional food halls in the Grand Concourse in two other areas of the city.The market will also relocate from its current Meatpacking District location — 52 Gansevoort Street, which is being redeveloped — to a 12,000-square-foot space at 353 West 14th Street, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The planned expansion would join the city’s growing number of upscale food halls that have sprouted across the city over the last few years, like Gotham West Market and City Kitchen. Earlier this week,  Vornado Realty Trust Announced That Its 2 Penn Plaza will soon be home to an 8,000-square-foot gourmet food court, dubbed Pennsy.

Reda is also working on a retail project in Dumbo — Empire Stores — that will include a 10,000-square-foot food hall, and he plans to bring a hall to Miami next year. Reda told the newspaper that his projects fall under the “Mrkt” brand, but he doesn’t consider the various food halls as part of a chain. [WSJ]Kathryn Brenzel
