Brewery, coffee shop and large outdoor plaza planned for Greenfield

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.

A rendering shows an aerial view of what a proposed brewery and coffee shop in Greenfield will look like when complete. The Lokal will feature a two-story brewery (at right) and single-level coffee shop with an outdoor plaza and outdoor dining space between the two businesses. It's being planned for the northwest corner of West Layton Avenue and South 84th Street.

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.
