Sistrunk Market and Brewery, a 40,000-square-foot development with a food hall near downtown Fort Lauderdale, is scheduled to open in November.
The mixed-use development at 115 Northwest Sixth Street also will encompass a recording studio and a brewery.
The business behind the project, Society 8 Hospitality Group, paid $4.65 million in April 2017 for the 2.3-acre development site on Northwest Sixth Street, also known as Sistrunk Boulevard.
Stephen Dapuzzo, manager of Project 8, told the Sun-Sentinel that the property’s food hall will have 12 vendors operating in 400-square-foot kiosks.
German-born Rauf Khoffner will relocate his brewery from a warehouse north of Sunrise Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale to the Sistrunk Market and Brewery.
Khoffner plans to install a beer-bottling line at the new location and to launch sales of American-style beer in fall under the Shady Brewing brand.
The municipal Community Redevelopment Agency in Fort Lauderdale has provided funding for the Sistrunk Market and Brewery in the form of a $1.4 million forgivable loan. [Sun-Sentinel] – Mike Seemuth
