Upcoming Projects


ATE ATE ATE is the newest property in the collection of unique destinations owned by the Windfall Group and will be operated by the outstanding team at Hospitality HQ. Our food hall is part of a new development at Burnsville Center, a popular community hub for shopping, dining, and entertainment that first opened in 1977. Burnsville Center itself is under new ownership and is being updated and revitalized in ways that will reflect today’s lifestyle preferences for an exciting new gathering place. The new food hall aims to bring international cuisine with nine diverse vendors, a central bar, and Enson Market, an Asian supermarket. 


Southern Box

The project, integral to the overarching vision of the Packing District's redevelopment, promises to be a cornerstone of the revitalized district.
