Doughnuts, tacos and beer are coming to a Greer shared dining hall that developers argue is anything but a run-of-the-mill food court.

Cartwright Food Hall, “an artisanal lifestyle dining concept” according to a news release, will capitalize on the completed CenterG streetscape project to attract customers to its seven restaurants, including Origami Doughnuts, Trade Street Taproom and Papi’s Tacos starting in late fall, according to the news release.

The project will include the renovation of a street-front building and early 20th century carriage house at 215 Trade St. that has housed a museum, gallery, hardware store, restaurant, stables and livery over the years.

"The completion of the CenterG streetscape project in Greer Station has made our downtown a regional destination for great shopping and dining,” Mayor Rick Danner said in the release. “It is a pleasure to welcome Cartwright Food Hall as one of the outstanding businesses in the city of Greer’s central business district, and I look forward to the opening of its unique venue and the exciting new dining options it brings to Greer Station.”
