Modern-day food halls update the traditional market experience by hosting purveyors of specialty foods, along with restaurants and small-scale shops. This video showcases two historic sites that were redeveloped into food halls that have become hubs of activity and commerce within their communities: Union Station in Denver and the Packing House in Anaheim, California. Across the United States, food halls are growing in popularity as anchors for mixed-use projects and as landmark attractions that can catalyze nearby development. At a challenging time for traditional retail, food halls can support local innovation, help build community ties, and drive traffic to new developments.

Agrihoods are single-family, multifamily, or mixed-use communities built with a working farm or a community garden as a focus. This video explores how agrihoods can foster a sense of community and increase access to healthy foods while supporting a developer’s bottom line by differentiating projects from others in the market.
