This is good news. Also, I was talking to someone (@TNaveraDBJ) who works at the DBJ on twitter and they said this....

he mentioned he's in talks with a hotel and a grocery store already — good signs for sure

They want it to be like a Banks/Short North, agreed, it would probably bring in some unique food/retail focused on UD

Stop n Save doesn't count as a grocery? Granted, the prices are higher than hell in there, and the crowd that shops there is a bit rough.

The Banks and Short North are nothing like each other. I hope that's not what they're going for. Water Street is the closest Dayton will come to the Banks and development in the OD may one day lead to a Short North type feel.

If anything it will be another Greene or Easton type place.

Yeah, I wonder if he just quoted it wrong. The point being, though, is this could be very nice if they do it right. I look at it like this. Try to get something comparable to the Banks when you combine Water Street and Midtown. Alone, neither can equal that, but together maybe they can.

Yeah they have a decent selection there. Definitely enough variety to live on if necessary.

I still think the best path to having a grocer downtown is by starting with a lower cost store that targets the market that can't get to a grocery store but can get to a bus stop. My solution is a Save A Lot in the City Centre building. I even emailed them about it about a month ago, they have a nice functionality on their website that allows people to submit location suggestions. But I haven't heard anything back, kinda doubt I will, but still holding out hope.

Either way, downtown needs a grocer to move forward

Wait, but you were complaining about "Those people" out there by the Kingsridge Walmart?

This is very good news. I was just thinking about this project the other day.
