TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

The possibility of a grocery store for downtown Tuscaloosa is taking another step forward.

The City of Tuscaloosa has voted to enter into an exclusive agreement with Blackwater Resources, the company that has made a proposal to purchase and develop a grocery store on the city-owned property across from the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater.

The agreement gives Blackwater Resources a 180-day due diligence period to move forward with its proposal and investigate the feasibility of the plan.

Plans for the development would be subject to the approval of the city.

So far, the company has not announced any grocery store brands associated with the project.

The site, at the corner of Jack Warner Parkway and Greensboro Avenue, was formerly the Tuscaloosa Farmers’ Market, prior to the construction of the Tuscaloosa River Market.
