That Kresge building is a sprawling showpiece, built strong in 1930 and expanded right back to King William in the 1940s.
Biggest, highest, driest basement downtown, wooden stock shelves still in place.
On the second floor, big staff lounge looks out onto Gore Park. Kresge safe sits there still.
Went on the market in the mid-90s for $2.8 million. Sold for $800,000.
So much space, so little purpose.
Love to see someone put a campus here.
