Mixed Use Development Planned for Florence CBD


Ground has been broken on a $10 million redevelopment of an old building in downtown Florence.

Local media outlets reported the ceremony at the Kress Building was Wednesday for the mixed-use development. The project will bring offices, a roof-top bar, retail shops, a corner restaurant and apartments to the site. It also will have a micro-distillery.

The project is scheduled to be completed late next year. Developers hope it will bring as many as 200 new jobs to the downtown area.

Last year Florence City Council approved a $2 million incentive package for the project. The developers have been working with preservationists to make sure the appearance of the nearly 100-year-old building remains historically accurate.
