TAMPA— First it was Armature Works, then The Hall on Franklin emerged, then Sparkman Wharf came to Channelside.

And now, NoHo Junction wants its turn.

The food court expects to open towards the end of April in its 4,000 square foot facility, located at 1500 W Cass St.

"It's a venture we always wanted to do and the timing wasn't right," said owner Randall Knowles. "But now it is. And in the future this area might be an area with some growth, so it's an investment for us."

Knowles calls it a "food court without the mall" but with chef-inspired flare that offers something for everybody at a moderate price.

The food court will feature eight tenants, serving Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine, Asian cuisine, pizza, barbecue, and a delicatessen, as well as shops featuring ice cream, coffee and a walk-up juice bar.

Its name, NoHo is short for North Howard, and mimics the trendy SoHo neighborhood on South Howard.

Knowles said the word junction is a spinoff of the railroad and acts as a meeting place for everyone to gather in one place.

Some tenants will allow guests to build their own pizza, tacos, rice and noodle bowls, and the space will host a number of self-service kiosks for guests to order food.

The space will also offer outdoor seating and will operate daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. For more information visit
