Rumors: Grocery on Columbus

I believe that the building in question was recently moved to 1001 Columbus with an accessory, brick warehouse building now located on 12th Street. This building was once housed El Progresso de Ybor Grocery among other things. Both buildings currently are up for sale by the City of Tampa through an RFP type of process. Whoever purchases the buildings will decide the future use and will need to complete renovations / restorations to the interior and exterior.

More information on the buildings long history (1908 - present) can be found here.
