Fans of the mozzarella with balsamic, black beans & agave with lime curd, or mango & dried chilies ice creams, or the cucumber with cherries or watermelon & parsley sorbets dreamed up by pastry chef Chris Leung and offered this summer by Cloud 10 Creamery in the Rice Village will be happy to learn that the adventurous ice cream shop opened its Heights outpost late last week. Cloud 10 fills the former bungalow at 711 Heights Blvd. — now upgraded to an address of 711A in honor of a separate building added behind it — anchoring one end of the boulevard-facing section of the Heights Mercantile development.
A Lululemon opened in the adjacent bungalow at 713 last month; the new double-bay parking lot along Heights Blvd. to the north of that structure was added to the project after its developers failed to secure a variance that would have allowed 58 existing head-in public parking spaces along 7th St. to count toward Heights Mercantile’s off-street requirements.
