Clearbell plans street food market hall for Riverwalk in Durham

Clearbell Property Partners II LP (Clearbell), a fund managed by Clearbell Capital, is to create a new street food market hall offering at The Riverwalk, the GBP30 million redevelopment on the banks of the River Wear in Durham.

Clearbell has unveiled early concepts for a new food hall to be prominently located in one of the new units on the Riverwalk’s promenade, adjacent to the Odeon cinema. The food hall will host a vibrant mix of street food and drinks brands in kiosks and mobile units, all situated around communal seating and smaller tables.
Increasingly popular in cities across the country, the food hall concept allows visitors to sample a wide range of food and flavours in one sitting, with something for everyone – from a family day out to an evening with friends.
Clearbell is looking for the hottest up-and-coming local food and drink brands and bringing them all under one roof. The list of operators will be carefully curated so that the operations complement each other, and each brand has a real chance to show off its individual appeal.
Nick Berry, Partner at Clearbell Capital, says: “The street food scene in the North East is really exciting, and we want to capture some of that spirit in The Riverwalk. Our new food hall concept will create a platform to bring unique food operators right to the heart of The Riverwalk, and with the cinema, bowling lanes and a great range of new restaurant brands, we’re establishing a real point of difference for Durham.”
