Spanning a soaring 55,000 square feet, the project boasts a curated selection of over 20 diverse food stalls offering culinary delights from around the globe. From the flame-seared Temaki sushi concept by Aburi Sushi to handmade Jewish deli favorites at Dave’s Genuine Deli, the offerings are as varied as they are tantalizing. Visitors can also enjoy gourmet flame-grilled burgers from Harry’s Charbroiled and hearty handmade ramen from Musoshin Ramen, among other delights. Additionally, beverage options abound, with Grape Witches overseeing a natural wine bar and Boxcar Social serving up perfectly executed coffee and alcoholic beverages.

The interior design of Waterworks Food Hall is equally impressive, with award-winning firms Cecconi Simone, Design Agency, and Futurestudio breathing new life into the space. Original artwork curated by Studio Ninth adorns the walls, creating a visually stunning environment for patrons to enjoy. The attention to detail extends beyond the culinary offerings and interior design, with innovative features such as underground parking and an advanced ordering platform enhancing the visitor experience.

Furthermore, the restoration of the original 1932 “Great Hall” showcases a remarkable adaptive reuse of the former machine shop, preserving many original historical and Art Deco details. The integration of outdoor spaces, including St. Andrew’s Playground Park, seamlessly connects Waterworks Food Hall to the vibrant King West community, further enhancing its appeal as a gathering spot for locals and visitors alike.
