Five restaurant owners at Market Space are looking to hold on to the expanded outdoor dining and increased foot traffic they’ve relied on during the pandemic with a semi-permanent shared seating and gathering place in the area closed to vehicle traffic. The group, led by Federal House co-owner Jeremy Black, hopes to keep the outdoor dining area for all five restaurants and beautify the space with planters, lighting, and colorful fabric shadings. The proposal would serve as a bridge between the end of the pandemic and the completion of the planned redevelopment of City Dock in three or four years, which shows Market Space as one of several mixed-use spaces for pedestrians, bicyclists or public events, Black said.
