If you’re from Fresno, you know what the Droge building is.
Is that name not ringing any bells?
Here, let me give you a hint:
Ah yes, THAT building.
Earlier this year, the city decided that even though it’s an old building (1922), it’s not worth preserving, as it’s not in the best of conditions.
Now, the city is moving forward with the process of redevelopment, into what they say will be a new 4 story residential development. The development would not preserve any aspect of the building.
The project has expanded to include the building next door, which has been empty for many years, but is in good condition. It is the one story to the left of the Droge.
