A former industrial property in the heart of Downtown Jersey City will be getting a sprawling new food hall next year as the ownership behind a beloved wine curator is working on a new endeavor called The Bread Factory.
The team behind CoolVines recently announced that they are bringing a 8,700 square foot food hall to the Arts & Powerhouse Building at 124-134 Bay Street. The property, which dates to the 19th century, is being overhauled by Kushner Companies and KABR Group into a mixed-use development.
The companies are adaptively reusing two previously industrial properties and connecting them via a vertical expansion. The new food hall is slated to feature two bars serving natural wines, full alcohol, no and low-alcohol cocktails, and pre and probiotic beverages.
While The Bread Factory has not announced any type of menu or vendors for the space just yet, a social media post promises “top chefs preparing a selection of epicurean street food.” The business is the second food hall to open in Downtown Jersey City following the District Kitchen project within the waterfront Harborside complex.
The Bread Factory can be followed on Instagram at the handle @thebreadfactoryjc and aims to open next year, along with the rest of the Arts & Powerhouse Building.
The food hall will have some culinary company at the property, as New York City’s Tacombi is also slated to open inside the building. An outpost of HaiDiLao Hotpot at the property has also been previously announced.
