The 'Riverboat', adjacent pizza restaurant and vacant commercial space that 'almost' going to be a Longs Drugs, has sold for $11.2 million.
The building was once a riverboat-themed hotel casino, complete with fake smokestacks and paddlewheels. When it closed, the upper floors became apartments, the ground level was on the verge of becoming a Longs Drugs, and even went through a remodel complete with sto\re shelving, only for Longs Drugs to be swallowed up by CVS, who chose not to open a store there and instead simply pay the lease while it remained empty. I was pretty furious about it.
Anyway, it has a new owner!
