Nice progress at Soapstone Market:

“an urban grocery and bar with indoor and outdoor cafe seating, will feature prepared foods, grab and go items, baked goods, butcher, seafood and deli counters, an espresso and coffee bar, a beer and wine bar and a fast casual concept where customers can pick from daily offerings to dine in or take away”
