Council approves plan to build office building on Food Truck Friday Site

Charlotte City Council unanimously approved a plan to build an office building for Dimensional Fund Advisors in South End.

This is the site where Common Market and Food Truck Fridays are located.

Fox 46 has learned Food Truck Fridays has plans to move to the Sycamore Brewing facility starting in the spring, but the owner of Common Market says he's still shopping around on a place to relocate.

Customers tell us they're sad to hear the store plans to move. Brandon Hinson said, “They want to bulldoze and go up. It’s happened to quite a few places around Charlotte, and it’s kind of a shame because you really have to fight for it.”

Mike Dutoit said, “It’s (Common Market is) a South End gem. It’s just somewhere people can come hang out. Everybody feels very comfortable, got music playing on the weekend.”

Council members said the plan is expected to bring as many as 600 jobs to the area.
