Alas, Smorgasburg won't stay here forever, as it looks like St. Ann's Warehouse will soon be inhabiting Tobacco Warehouse. H3 Architects have revealed a preliminary design for the theater company, with plans to preserve the old brick facade with the new space inserted within. In response to neighborhood objections over the private development of city-owned parkland, the project will make up for the lost area with the provision for additional green space under the bridge.
In the meantime, take advantage of the attraction while it lasts. Every Sunday from now through November 18, 75-some-odd food vendors will set up shop from 11am-6pm. To whet your appetite, take a look at some of the offerings from last weekend...
