This would be pure awesome for Tacoma! Will I reserve all my excitement until this actually becomes a reality? Probably. From the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce:
One grocer is preparing to stake out territory on the ground floor of Pacific Plaza, a shiny new mixed-use project. Grace Pleasants, who wants to develop a project up the street, hopes to lure a second grocer to her mixed-use project, which includes turning the landmark Elks Temple...
The Pacific Plaza location doesn't make much sense to me. If I had money to bet on pointless betting I'd bet a grocer next to the Elks will be first to the game.

Crenshaw, as soon as I find out how much the taxpayers are going to be on the hook for there will be some more excitement from my perspective.

|I'm sure the tax payers will be bailing out this project for years to come.|

|@Crenshaw: I think it would've been a popular post two years ago but, like me, many are jaded to the prospect of a downtown grocery store. I'll definitely believe it when I see it.|

|I'll just be excited to see the McMenamins actually happen.
Jaded by the poor economy and 3 big half-finished buildings, I am.

|It was the "top click of the week," so lots of people seem to have read it -- there's just not that much to discuss until somebody makes a firmer commitment.|

|Other good grocery news: the Tacoma Food Co-op is likely to occupy the entire Sixth Ave Neighborhood Market. Not sure what the timeline is, but it's nice to see them making progress.|

|There's been a zillion grocery store rumors since I've been following this site and Exit133.

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
