The new Kroger location?

Rumor on the street is that Kroger has given up on Wayne and Wyoming, and is now looking at Fifth and Wayne- at the old Supply One site.

Once proposed as a location for Fifth Third Field- the site could be assembled out of a lot fewer parcels. While not exactly a great walking location for anyone but the Oregon District and the Cannery, it would still be a nice piece in the Downtown Development program (oh, excuse me for suggesting that it would be “downtown”).

What this means for the poor folks in the now really blighted Wayne and Wyoming area is that you are totally screwed. The Ecki building may have a last chance at salvation, but, unfortunately- the old Supply One building which I always thought would make great lofts- will now bite the dust.
