The owners of Portland Foreside, formerly known as 58 Fore Street,  have announced that plans for the redevelopment of the property will include up to 30 local restraurantors, food entrepreneurs and purveyors of fine foods.  They will occupy a number of historic buildings that are being rehabbed on  site.

The owners of the almost 10 acres of waterfront property, are in the process of designing a local market place to be located indoors. There will be outdoor seating and programming year round.The local market is in he early stages of planning, but envisioned to occupy the first floor of all the historic buildings according to Kevin Costello, managing partner of Portland Foreside Development Co.

Furthermore, EVO the restaurant currently located at the corner of Union and Fore Streets, is expected to relocate to the new site as well.

The former Pattern Storehouse was dismantled early in the summer.  The salvaged bricks have been cleaned and are stored at the site until they are ready to be reconstructed closer to the waterfront.

The current owners of the almost ten acres of waterfront property on the east end of Portland are Casey Prentice and Kevin Costello.  Prentice is president of the Prentice Hospitality Group.

The property was bought from  Phineas Sprague, Jr.
