Franklinton’s 400 W Rich St block slated for major changes

Big things are happening on the development front in Franklinton.

By 2020, an expanded Strongwater Food & Spirits kitchen space, a coffee shop, and an events center will all be revealed.

The new coffee shop, being called “Rich Coffee” for now, will take over a parcel of 400 West Rich. The exact address will be 442 W. Rich St.

There will be patios in the front and back as well as a dining room inside.

Food sold at the shop will be prepared in Strongwater’s expanded kitchen.


Perhaps the biggest project, though, will be the event space at 435 W. Town St. in the remains of the old B & T Metals facility.

This space will more or less be an extension of Strongerwater that is currently very spatially challenged.

Now, the company will be able to take on large corporate events or community celebrations.

All three projects are being overseen by Urban Smart Growth (USG), the company behind the 400 West Rich property.
