Cultivation Hall was the state’s first and only food hall, said developer Ted Duckworth, principal at Concord Companies.

Developers said they have decided to change directions after the operating partner and general manager of Cultivation left for other opportunities.

“We plan to take that foundation and build upon it,” Duckworth said. “The next chapter for this space will be fun and exciting. Jackson’s restaurant scene is vibrant and progressive; you cannot find better food than places like Walker’s, Elvie’s, Bravo, and Pulito Osteria. Our intention is to build on that momentum and continue to make the community proud with what comes next.”
