KAI was hired to provide general contracting services for a new 20,000 SF grocery store near the City of St. Louis’ North side called GreenLeaf Market. This was one of the first projects in the massive Northside Regeneration project in an area that is currently considered a food desert.
GreenLeaf Market relies on Good Natured Family Farms, a farmers’ group and the St. Louis region that supply fresh and affordable vegetables, meats, eggs, fruits and fish to GreenLeaf. This is a complete grocery store that focuses on fresh, locally grown and competitively priced food; customers can get double the value of their food stamps when they purchase healthy foods. This grocery store allows the local community to shop for basic goods without having to leave their neighborhood.
