Downtown Orlando could be getting a new food hall at the former El Buda space on Church Street.

Documents filed with the city of Orlando by the firm Baker Barrios Architects for the building's owners, Mason Capital Partners, show plans for a "Church Street Food Hall" concept. The building is the site of the former  Bumby Hardware Store – one of the oldest commercial structures in Orlando that was built in 1886.

The new owners of the building want to put a steel structure at the entrance near the railroad tracks, according to the plans. The project also calls for altering the store front on the annex building facing Church Street.

The "Church Street Food Hall" project will be reviewed by the Orlando's Historic Preservation Board for approval.
