So my friend was talking to the owner of Big Bob's in EGR and he said that he was interested in thier old location on the corner of Hall and Giddings but the current owner (who has had the windows covered with newspapers for years) wants 1 million for it... So it looks like that whole retail block there will continue to suffer. It is too bad there is some great potential to serve ottawa hills/ SE side there.
A million?????? He cant be serious!
My family lived near this corner back in 1987 and I've never known a time when that intersection could have ever warranted that type of price on any of those buildings. The Ottawa branch library, one of the few well-maintained buildings, wouldn't even fetch that much. the rest of the intersection is mostly
shabby car repair shops, and a liquor store. It's been a long time, But I think a tailor and a karate
school was also in the area.
Just another one of these local property trolls looking to score a fantasy payout on property that does not deserve the asking price.
