In the mood for coffee? Beer? Perhaps both?
A pair of new businesses planned for 84South in Greenfield will slake your thirst, be it for an IPA or caffe latte.
The Lokal, a side-by-side brewery and coffee shop is proposed for the northwest corner of West Layton Avenue and South 84th Street, part of the 84South development.
Serving beer on that corner isn’t a new idea. The Lokal Beer Garden was started on an empty lot there in July 2020.
Now, Cobalt Partners is planning something more permanent.
Plans call for a two-story brewery building to “hug” the corner of the intersection with the coffee shop located to the west.
Between the two will be an approximately 5,000-square-foot outdoor plaza with a stage and ample space for outdoor dining.
The brewery will include an 8,200-square-foot first level, 6,800-square-foot second level and 6,500-square-foot basement.
The coffee shop is proposed to be a 1,500-square-foot single-story building with a pedestrian pick-up window and no drive-thru.
The tenants have yet to be determined.
The Greenfield Plan Commission approved site, landscaping and architectural plans for the project June 8.
The timetable for construction and opening of the businesses will depend on the tenants, Greenfield Community Development Manager Kristi Porter said.
Attempts to reach the developer weren’t immediately successful.
Both the brewery and coffee buildings will have similar designs and blend together to create a welcoming atmosphere, according to architectural designs submitted to the city.
The main building materials will include cream city color brick, exposed steel frame elements and wood look aluminum screens.
The brewery will have operable garage doors.
It will also include outdoor balconies on Level 2 which will overlook the plaza below, offer views to the stage and provide additional outdoor dining options.
The site likely will have unique signage. Cobalt is proposing a silo be located west of the outdoor plaza that would include signage.
