The process of selling the former Woody’s on the Water building to an entrepreneur who means to open a seafood restaurant there has met with myriad delays, but light can be seen at the end of the tunnel. The City voted to sell the property for $300K back in January to developer Thomas Genin, but red tape, due diligence, and other factors have bogged down the actual closing of the sale; it looks like it could be finalized as soon as June 15th. The site is next to the Columbus Marina.

Genin has stated that he plans to renovate the restaurant itself and the boat docks, as well as adding a seafood market to the building and a beach to the property nearby.
