New businesses are opening up along a two-block stretch on Center Street. “Actually with the sweet ones, if they just come to room temperature are really delicious. You don’t even need an oven,” Kate Anderson explains. Anderson is the owner of Carter and Rye. She opened her shop just five weeks ago at 36th and Center streets. “I’ve actually lived in the neighborhood for the last four-plus years and I really loved the community around here very neighborhood,” Anderson said. Her hand pies are made from scratch in various flavors and bring in customers back to back. Anderson said it’s important to bring life back to the area. “We are just investing in our neighborhood and then our neighborhood will shine through these places,” Anderson said. Carter and Rye is part of a bigger project to revitalize Center Street from 34th to 36th Streets. The Center Street project heard from neighbors who want a safer, more vibrant street where businesses can grow.”It’s just a plant love fest up in here,” Sheelytown Market owner Amelia Rosser said. Rosser is what many might call a green thumb. Her passion is plants and she opened Sheelytown Market during the pandemic. She’s also been working with the Center Street project. “I believe this is an area that was like this 60 years ago,” Rosser said. Rosser said there’s still space to grow, but she’s excited to see small businesses put roots down.”There’s still plenty of room for opportunity here and the neighborhoods on both sides of Center Street are really excited and supportive,” Rosser said. “It’s a really unique corner of the city.”
