Maybe if Mrs Goessling asked for the loan....
Short Vine is Corryville and this project is in another thread.
Does anyone have a detailed (like street by street) map of the neighborhood boundaries in/around Clifton?
Clifton could get its grocery store back by the end of April.Steve Goessling, owner of the former Keller’s IGA on Ludlow, said Monday that he has received final approval on the construction loan for the $4.1 million project, and closing is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 9.“Now the real work will begin,” he said.http://news.cincinnati.com/article/20121231/BIZ/312310104/Gaslight-Market-aims-April-opening
he encountered several delays in lining up funding for the $4.1 million renovation. The $1.89 million construction loan from Fifth Third, expected to be finalized three weeks ago, was the final piece of the puzzle.“Hallelujah,” Goessling said after Thursday’s closing.He said he needs to consult with general contractor Reece-Campbell Inc. before announcing an opening date, but he hopes work can start next week.
I moved from a building near Clifton and Ludlow, eights months after Keller's IGA closed.Then I moved from Bishop Street one year later. Now I live in Clifton Heights, two years after the grocery store closed. At some point, you just lost interest, and the empty promises mean nothing to you.
Furthermore, I have to be skeptical of the business savvy of the Goessling group. They come in knowing how difficult the lending environment is right now yet still continue to make all these specific promises and sharing their timeline with the public, both huge mistakes. Clearly they have never heard of under-promising and over-delivering. How does this kind of impulsive decision-making translate into the day-to-day operation of the business? That remains to be seen. And this guy has the nerve to talk about how he is interested in opening a location DT or in OTR.....ooooookay, buddy.
Construction to turn the old Clifton IGA into a new neighborhood grocery store is under way after many months of delays.Reece-Campbell workers began demolition this morning on the roof of the 29,000-square-foot Ludlow Avenue building and will put on a new one as soon as that’s done, project manager Mike Ruwe said
