Now under construction – South Yard was formerly occupied by Farmers Cooperative near the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and South School Avenue in Fayetteville.
The four existing main buildings will be reused as part of a development that will contain food and beverage establishments, entertainment, small office and retail space and a new public park. Around 128 new apartments will be added to the approximately 9 acre site. The existing buildings are situated along an arc running from north to southwest — the trace of a long-gone rail line that once served the local timber and produce industries. A new boardwalk will follow the route of the old rail line. South Yard opens in 2022.
