View Full Version : Demolition Old Greb Shoe Property
09-18-2010, 10:35 AM
I recently was through the Hayward area and noticed the old factory had been torn down and cleaned up. Finally, it was one of the worst eyesores in the city.
But it did get me thinking, that property would be great for a storage/maintenance facility for the LRT if it gets built. It's adjacent to the railway and in an industrial area.
Does anyone know where the yard is planned for the LRT vehicles.
