Developers Wanted in Florence


Come one, come all, developers and planners.

If you have an idea for a major building – especially if it’s for the old Kress building — in downtown Florence, now’s your chance to be heard.

This week, the Florence City Council approved what’s known as a “status quo period” of 60 days for the old Kress store building at the corner of Evans and South Dargan streets. It’s the building with the yellow brick exterior.

The special time window will give interested developers time to submit plans for the Kress building, without worrying about it being sold from under their feet.

Ray Reich, the city’s downtown director, said the “status quo” was necessary after several developers approached Florence about working on the city-owned building. Any interested party will be able to submit plans to the city for the next 60 days thanks to Council’s action.
