Groundswell Design to Turn 17th and Locust Into a Sweet Adresse

Our healthy colleagues over at BeWell report that the design firm behind Morgan’s Pier and Talula’s Garden will next take on 1706 Locust, formerly home to upscale clothing boutique Adresse. The space will be converted into Pure Sweets, a cafe/bakery/juice bar/take-out lunch spot courtesy of Andrea Kyan, whose gluten-free deliciousness biz will be going bricks-and-mortar for the first time.

Kyan just signed the lease today, so she has a while to think about design. As for food, Kyan is thinking healthy, raw and Southeast Asian.
