PLK is developing three parcels including the triangle property (at the corner of
Hamilton Ave & Blue Rock St) for market-rate housing.
According to grocery experts, Associated Wholesale Grocers (AWG), and Dakota
Worldwide, the best spot in the neighborhood for an affordable, full-service
grocery store is right there in the triangle site at the corner of Hamilton and Blue
Rock (with 10,000 square feet, 30 parking spaces, and a loading dock).
CITY LEADERS NEED TO KNOW THAT APPLE STREET MARKET IS A PRIORITY
- PLK needs the city to give them a strip of land for “Right of Access.” That piece
of property is a key resource right in the middle of the Northside business
district. In exchange for this critical piece of property, PLK’s project must
include elements that satisfy community needs like a full-service, affordable
grocery store (Apple Street Market), and low-income housing.
- An affordable full-service grocery store at the triangle site would benefit
neighborhood residents and serve as an attractive amenity for PLK’s 350
rental units. Making Apple Street Market a partner is a win-win.
- PLK can create an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) between Apple
Street and PLK Communities that would lay out clear benchmarks that Apple
Street Market would need to meet in order to be incorporated into the
- PLK should be urged to develop the largest parcel at Cherry and Cooper first,
giving Apple Street Market the time needed to fundraise.
