Food notes: Riverside Fresh Market nearer to completion


Fresh Market is turning its attention to the inside of its new store under construction in the Riverside-Brooklyn area.

The city approved the build-out Tuesday for Fresh Market at the new Shoppes on Riverside.

Fresh Market will renovate the interior of the shell structure at 211 Riverside Ave. at a project cost of $772,600. J. Raymond Construction Corp. is the contractor for the 25,267-square-foot project.

So far, five buildings either are under construction or in review for the Shoppes on Riverside. A sixth is shown on site plans for future development. One of the five is for Corner Bakery.

The center is a joint venture of Regency Centers Corp. and Fuqua Development. Regency announced in October it would develop the 49,870-square-foot retail project, expecting to invest about $14.7 million in development and construction.
