Earlier this summer plans were announced that a local nightclub would open in the old McCrory’s building on Fourth Street between Muhammad Ali Blvd. and Chestnut Street. This was excellent news as the local response to 4th Street Live! has been timid to put it mildly.

In August, workers were clearing the interior of the building in what we hoped was a precursor to construction. Broken Sidewalk has now learned plans for the site have fallen through and the property is back on the market. Financing the project seems to be largely to blame.

  1. We have enough terrible clubs that nobody wants to go to…what about putting a grocery store there so that people will have a reason to move downtown…

  2. A nice thought, but there’s already a large grocery store downtown nobody (white) goes to, and Market on Market closed down because of a lack of business.

    If a club works, I say go for it! And actually, aesthetically, the odds are that the nightclub might do a better job of designing the space than Kroger would. Either way, I hope someone does something.
