A Local Foods Locale for Heights Mercantile

Expanding organic Rice Village fast-casual chain Local Foods will fill in one of the tenant holes in the biggest structure of under-construction Heights Mercantile, judging from the permits issued earlier this month for a buildout at 714 Yale St. The joint is supposed to share the double-decker structure with a fitness studio, per current marketing materials, though that tenant hasn’t been formally announced yet either. The leasing listing for the various subsections of the retail development is still active on LoopNet, indicating a handful of retail spaces potentially still up for grabs in the 2 buildings across 7th St.:

Glass-fronted Building 2 (shown above) has an 800 sq.-ft. minimum, with a total of 12,048 sq.-ft. potentially up for grabs. Building 1 below, at the corner of 7th and Heights, will have 2 retail spots on either side of an anchor restaurant:

And crepe cart Melange Creperie’s planned spot in the mix will be in one of those refurbished bungalows over on Heights Blvd, along with alternative ice cream shop Cloud 10 Creamery:
