As reported in today's enquirer Tower Place Mall has a new owner/developer that promises to breathe much needed new life into 4th Streets struggling retail center. The developer responsible for creating Rookwood Commons now has his sights set on downtown. 4th Street is fast becoming a center point for downtown living. With all the new activity buzzing around Fountain Square, a well stocked retail destination would be a huge asset to insuring long term success downtown. It really makes sense to have a good central shopping spot in the center of the city rather than out in the suburbs. Now what we really need is a good grocery store downtown also. I'm tired of having to drive to Rookwood or Clifton for groceries. A nice whole foods market or similar along the streetcar route would be a dream come true
for Downtown and OTR residents.
