Springfield is adding another piece to its citywide redevelopment plans, as city commissioners have approved turning five acres of green space into two 8,400 square foot restaurant and retail buildings.
Commissioners will allow the development to take place at the site of the former Roosevelt Middle school on North Limestone Street. The new development will be called the Limestone Center and will be built by PGI Development of Powell, Ohio.
PGI will also build two office buildings behind the restaurant and retail space, which will be a combined 30,000 square feet.
The author Harry Dolan returns with his second crime fiction novel featuring David Loogan, the editor of a noirish mystery magazine called "Gray Streets." Dolan currently resides in Ann Arbor and he has set this series in that rather unusual locale. As he notes in this interview, Ann Arbor's murder rate is nearly non-existent.
