Piada’s 2,571-square-foot restaurant aims to meet the demand of today’s consumers looking for healthy, convenient and fast delivery of fresh Italian cooking.

The partnership of Florida-based Elion Partners and Minnesota’s Kraus-Anderson signed a lease with Piada Italian Street Food at CityPlace in Woodbury, Minnesota. The national eatery brings the 100-acre master-planned development one step closer to offering a true work-play community.

Piada’s 2,571-square-foot restaurant aims to meet the demand of today’s consumers looking for healthy, convenient and fast delivery of fresh Italian cooking.  The restaurant is currently under construction and is expected to open the Fall of 2016.

Piada also joins a 116-room Residence Inn by Marriott and anchor tenant Whole Foods Market, along with Nordstrom Rack, Verizon Wireless, Café Zupas, Pie Five Pizza, Naf Naf Grill, Spire Credit Union, Wedding Day Diamonds, Caribou Coffee, La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings and Décor, Mattress Firm, Potbelly Sandwich Shoppe, Qdoba Mexican Grill and TU Nails. Other retailers opening this year at CityPlace include: Chuck & Don’s, Sur La Table, CycleBar and Bank of America.

Last year, Elion Partners announced plans to rebuild CityPlace’s existing 400,000-square-foot office building by replacing it with a multi-unit office park that is designed to attract and retain businesses well into the future.  The office building is part of the 100-acre transformation of CityPlace, the high-profile, mixed-use development that features shopping, restaurants, a hotel and office space. TRIA Orthopaedic Center will become the first in a series of new office tenants.
