The effect of adding Enzo's and The Flying Squirrel is not just having more things to do. It strengthens the neighborhood by putting more people on the street, according to Palmer.

"You reach a point where now that all these people are on the street, they all know each other. That's what builds community, that's what builds strength. They will do things for one another that most people won't do in a community that is completely disconnected

Palmer studied architecture at Auburn University under the late Samuel Mockbee, an influential teacher whose Rural Studio created homes and "shelter for the soul" for the rural poor.

"He's the one who taught me you are affecting community well beyond the lifespan of whatever company or person is in the building you design,” he said. “It becomes part of the community or city or town that you're in. It needs to have a positive effect."

Enzo's grocery store holds its public grand opening Friday from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. The Flying Squirrel restaurant-bar by the Crash Pad hostel has been holding private soft opening events, with a grand opening to be scheduled.
