“This year marks a milestone in Utah’s local food economy with the entrance of a cooperative grocer,” said Erin Whitelock, a member of the WCM board of Directors. “We look forward to re-investing in our local food system through a full-service grocery store focusing on local goods first.”
WCM worked with Utah developer Kathia Dang to become the anchor tenant of her re-development at 400 E 900 S – The Milk Block.
What was once home to the Southeast Asian market has been re-envisioned by Dang to become the neighborhood’s nucleus for commerce and community, offering local restaurants, retailers and four live-work units. Construction on the project is slated to begin in August 2023.
