Washington University will formally announce on Thursday that specialty grocer Global Foods Market has agreed to lease nearly 15,000 square feet in the five-story student apartment building going up at Delmar and Eastgate.

The paper reports that Blueberry Hill owner Joe Edwards will put his new Peacock Loop Diner in the building next door.
