A new hybrid retail space brings local art and design together in one stunning setting.

An executive director at J.P. Morgan by day, Devin Hill is used to betting on the market. But now, the serial entrepreneur has another one to track: his newest venture, Market at Casablanc, an 8,000-square-foot loft featuring gallery space, a video recording studio, and a killer roof deck. The studio and pop-up concept also houses independent designers, who utilize the co-working space to collaborate and display their wares. Case in point: Market’s One Love Fall Fashion Kickoff & Cocktail Party, on September 17, will find each in-house designer debuting their autumn creations.
“We’ve definitely paid a lot of attention to the people we’re bringing together in order to make the right blend,” says Hill of his focus on fostering interaction between local artists, artisans, and designers. But Hill also aims to add the public to that equation via the project’s common space, which showcases products and hosts fashion and video shoots. “I hope Market becomes an extremely popular place for people to hang out,” says the 49-year-old, who partnered with fellow co-founders creative director Pat Dagl and Cait Danahy on the project. “I would say the best thing that could happen would be to have every brand in the place be a recognizable national or international brand.” To Boston—and beyond! 169 Norfolk Ave.
