Construction on the lot, a project of the non-profit organization Good Work Network, should begin in early summer and finish a few months later.
The lot will provide booths for six vendors made from recycled shipping containers along with parking on the edges for trucks. It will operate Tuesday through Saturday from mid-day until early evening. The goal of the project is to serve both a lunch and an after-work crowd.
A delivery service is under consideration for workers in the CBD.
Good Work Network hopes the project will both create 20 jobs and help more vendors become established businesses.
The project is funded by a federal Community Economic Development grant.
