May­or Jess Alum­baugh shares excite­ment with the com­mu­ni­ty as a once city-owned Down­town build­ing is now a filled mixed-use space with the recent announce­ment of a start-up gourmet restau­rant, Mac 123

Mac 123 is a cre­ative con­cept that I believe will pull peo­ple into Mar­i­on from around the region with its broad choic­es of tai­lored gourmet mac & cheese dish­es and local­ly grown greens for sal­ads. Per­haps most impor­tant­ly, it reflects the grow­ing num­ber of young peo­ple choos­ing Mar­i­on as a place to live and do busi­ness. Mike Kot­lars­ki, the Exec­u­tive Chef of Mac 123, is a great exam­ple of Mar­i­on attract­ing mil­len­ni­als to work and live,” explained May­or Alumbaugh.

Mac 123 is sched­uled to open its doors (at 123 E. 3rd St.) in Octo­ber of this year. See the restaurant’s press release for more info (attached below).

Since the build­ing was pur­chased from the City last year, its new pri­vate own­er, Michael Hal­stead, has relo­cat­ed his expand­ing Hal­stead Archi­tects Mar­i­on office on the 2nd floor, leased a one-bed­room apart­ment on the same floor, and signed a lease in recent weeks with the new niche restau­rant for the entire 1st floor plus use of the adja­cent court­yard for patrons to enjoy out­door dining. 

Hal­stead is stead­fast in invest­ing in Down­town, Mar­i­on. He is also work­ing at a rapid pace to ful­ly occu­py and revi­tal­ize the Rid­ley Tow­er, the largest build­ing Down­town, into mixed use space begin­ning this winter.
