Roncelli completed this 53,000 sf building in 114 days, which has been called the “Theatre” of innovative food services.
The building is composed of concrete foundations, steel columns and joists, single-wythe masonry walls visible from both sides, a concrete floor slab and an EPDM roof on steel roof deck. The building has large elliptical windows across the front of the building with black iron banana leaf patterned balconies and circular stairs at each end to give the building a New Orleans style look.
With special attention to lighting, at night the underside of the canopy glows from the interior lighting through the curtain wall glass above the front entrance. The north façade has copper gas lanterns that hang in front of each window and at the front of the store, two six-foot wide fireplaces within the 42 foot high piers frame the entrance along with the cobblestone stamped concrete, which enhances the New Orleans style character of the building.
Services include a flower and gift shop, bakery, cheese shop, wine/liquor sales, produce, dairy, butcher shop, fresh fish, dry goods, Chocolatier, sit down café and catering services.
