Edge City Brewery and popular concerts show momentum of MoRA
Our Thursdays Live concerts have resumed, and this is just part of the excitement as residents and businesses discover the attraction of our area. The latest new is that of Edge City, a novel new brewery concept coming to MoRA and the Meridian Place building adjacent to the Embrace sculpture.
Opening this fall, Edge City will offer a green, organic taproom that will “push the limits”, serving a number of creative beer recipes inspired by local ingredients. Brothers Jared and John Thomas are the primary partners of Edge City and are supported by partner and marketing maven, Mandii Green of Belle’s Creative who also works with Hawthorne’s Pizza.
Fun community events and gatherings are part of the Edge City plan and it plans to work closely with other breweries, local farmers, entertainers and area entrepreneurs. Like MoRA, Edge City will appeal to a number of audiences and will be family and pet friendly.
M Station Apartments continue to be a popular choice
The momentum of the MoRA area can be seen in the continued popularity and high occupancy rates for M Station and its spacious and distinctive one, two and three bedroom apartments. Amenities at M Station are as impressive as its design, whether its the community’s pool, sundeck and outdoor gathering places or its clubrooms and fitness center. Visit here to find out more or to lease an apartment at M Staton.
The vision of Meridian Place is to respond to the requests of MoRA residents by combining neighborhood shops and offices with inspiring apartments, art and gathering places that fulfill the needs of this evolving community.
Embrace sculpture becoming gathering place
The Embrace sculpture has become a gathering place for MoRA residents and a great venue for events. Creative gathering places like this are essential to making communities engaging and a source of connections.
Thanks again to the MoRA community and all who helped create Embrace.
