Hodesh is converting the Union Hall, 208 W. Liberty, which sits behind Home and Garden, into a commercial kitchen, with plans to rent the properties nearby outdoor courtyard to 10 food cart vendors. “It’s just a great use of neglected urban space and it creates job opportunities,” Hodesh said. Vendors will pay a single fee for a courtyard space and kitchen use. Construction is underway and the tentative opening is set for April. Downtown Home and Garden. 210 S. Ashley St. 734-662-8122. www.downtownhomeandgarden.com
