Next door, Kroger has revived efforts to acquire land and plan a new supermarket at 16th and Central Avenue to replace an old location. The chain bought the corner a few years ago and closed on a vacant parcel that was previously part of Caravelle earlier this year. Together, the developments could represent a turning point for a blighted stretch of 16th Street. At a minimum, the housing agency plans to reopen Park Avenue, which now dead-ends in the complex, and take down fences that surround the apartment buildings. But there’s a “good chance” the plans will involve demolition of the existing complex, at 1643 N. Park Ave., and the construction of a more urban- looking replacement, said Bruce Baird, the group’s director of strategic planning and development. Check out the full story here.
