City trying to redevelop Erie Street Market

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

After sitting vacant for nearly three years, city leaders say they want to redevelop the Erie Street Market and are working with people interested in filling the space.

With more people moving to the downtown Toledo area, city leaders say they are listening to and recognizing their needs, which include more retail stores and a grocery store. Leaders hope a business like that can move in and occupy the market building.

Toledo's development director, Matt Sapara, says interest in the building continues to increase each time a new development announcement is made.

"You have the ProMedica announcement. You have people continuing to move to the downtown area. Then you see another development like this, and activity breeds activity. You see this synergy going on right now and downtown is back. It's alive and there are good things going on," said Sapara.

Sapara says they are in discussions with several different people about the building. He hopes to have a concrete plan to take to the mayor and City Council within the next 60 days.
