Some information regarding the Harris Riverfront Park Redevelopment. CMD has the value estimated at $100,000,000. Is this amount correct?

Yep, that amount is correct. It’s supposed to be 3 phases over about 10 years or so. Hopefully it all comes to fruition.

The second link you included with the mock-ups is actually a different develipment. That’s the Brownfield redevelopment at the old ACF site. That’s where the new baseball field is supposed to go.

I debated if this would be the best thread for this link and idea but here it goes anyway.

City works to secure abandoned apartment building after complaints | News | herald-dispatch.com

This could be the piece of property needed for the proposed downtown grocery store we've all mentioned and discussed on this forum. The building could be 4 to 5 stories tall, with the first two floors being occupied by a grocery store and either apartments or student dorms on the upper floors. Also, part of the first floor of the building could be built on concrete pillars so that the street level is used for parking. A portion of the building could be left on the street level to allow for loading dock space for the store.

There's definitely a lot of potential there. If a private developer or even a PPP with Marshall would take over the property, build a nice 4-5 story building with businesses on the bottom and maybe subterranean parking, that would be a great development. Being so close to Marshall, it would be a natural place to a have a grocery store for sure.

The bigger issue here is the way that WV code ties the hands of cities to deal with things like this. This property owner owns several prominent buildings in town. What's to become of them now since he has filed for bankruptcy? According to the article, this guy has "disappeared." He owns the white building on the corner of 10th street and 4th Ave as well as the old Arcade Building on 4th Ave. Hopefully they are sold and redeveloped. I'd imagine the guys redoing the old Elks Club building would be interested in the building close to them.
