In early 2020, Brookfield Properties is scheduled to complete its $60-million renovation of the former Wells Fargo Center Atrium, which will reopen as a food hall known as Halo.  With an opening date now just months away, we are finally getting an idea of who will occupy the restored space.

In a noticed distributed earlier this week, Brookfield announced five new tenants at Halo, which occupies a mid-block site along Grand Avenue to the north of 4th Street.  They include:

  • Danny Boy's Famous Original Pizzeria - founded by chef Daniel Holzman;
  • Green Thing - an Asian restauranted started by Chef Darren Sayphraraj;
  • Trejo's Tacos and Trejo's Coffee & DOnuts - the latest location of the chains founded by actor Danny Trejo; and
  • Shake Shack - the second Downtown outpost for the New York chain.

Additionally, the existing Nick + Stef's Steakhouse will remain as part of Halo upon completion.
