Founders of Smallman Galley to Open New Food Hall at Nova Place

Pittsburgh, Pa.— (April 3, 2017) Pittsburgh has been hooked on Smallman Galley since the food hall first opened its doors in December 2015 in the Strip District.  A little over a year later, the celebrated culinary destination is setting its sights on the North Side to open a second location.

Faros Properties announces today that Galley Group – parent company of Smallman Galley – will open another signature food hall at Nova Place in early Fall 2017 as Nova Place’s newest tenant. Galley Group will occupy a 5,500 square foot standalone building on the Plaza at Nova Place in a space that was once occupied by PNC Bank. The new concept will introduce an innovative dining experience on the North Side.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of Nova Place. Faros Properties has done an amazing job revitalizing the area and we are excited to provide an innovative and welcoming venue for the property’s office tenants, residents, game-day crowds, community events, and the growing tourist population in Pittsburgh,” said Galley Group Co-Founder Ben Mantica.

The new food hall will be reminiscent of Smallman Galley, with some exciting new elements.  More details will be released in the coming months.

“We’re ecstatic to welcome Galley Group—it was very important to us to find a restauranteur that values the community as much as we do.  The new concept is an innovative dining experience that will be a huge value-add for the neighborhood,” said Faros Properties Managing Partner Elliot Gould.

Formerly the Allegheny Center Mall, Nova Place is a 1.5 million square-foot office complex undergoing a multi-million-dollar renovation to transform the property into a first-class campus providing a corporate environment for current and future tenants to inspire, educate, and grow.  Over the past three years, Faros Properties has invested over a quarter of a billion dollars into the region.
