Boardwalk 2.0

The award-winning Boardwalk opened in 2020 as a way to showcase the businesses on Restaurant Row, the 14 food businesses that attract 200,000 patrons from within a 20-mile radius and employ 200 persons.

By being both modular and mobile, Boardwalk 2.0 makes an easy and visually attractive pop-up space that can be placed curbside or on a lot.

Boardwalk 2.0 can become the ‘place to be’ post-Covid-19 on the southside where residents and visitors experience the unique offerings each corridor has.
