Ken’s Market expansion approved

The Department of Planning and Development has approved the controversial expansion of Ken’s Market on Greenwood Ave.

To make way for the expansion, Ken’s did not renew the lease for several stores including Allusia, Greenwood Bakery and Couth Buzzard bookstore.

Clark Design Group has designed the larger market. The plans call for Ken’s to expand into the 5,601 square feet of space that was occupied by the shops and add another 364 square feet onto the first floor of the building. A second floor will also be added for office space. According to the written decision, a “high volume of public comment [was] received regarding this project,” especially regarding traffic and parking. After hearing public comment and an environmental review, the department approved the expansion plans.
