Sweetgreen - or, as the health-forward cafe operator likes to do it, sweetgreen - says it has inked a lease for its third Philly area location, following shops in University City and Ardmore.

It will open next spring at 924 Walnut St., a former Bonte location.

This marks sweetgreen’s 23d store in the United States, the company said in a statement.

"Like its predecessors, the new store was designed with green practices in mind to minimize its environmental footprint. With compostable packaging, design details and furniture made from reclaimed materials, LED light fixtures, and wind energy offset credits to power its stores, sweetgreen continually aims to raise the bar in sustainable business practices. The Center City store will feature reclaimed wood from Pennsylvania as well as an open kitchen design and unique outdoor-only seating."
