A worker installs window frames on the 12,184 square foot Wert’s Grove building, located at 480 Main St., as next door the bell tower and steeple of the historic Groveport United Methodist Church, built in 1908, can be seen. Construction is progressing on the Wert’s Grove building and the 14,145 square foot Rarey’s Port building, located at 674 Main St. The buildings are part of the city of Groveport’s $7.6 million 1847 Main Project. Construction is expected to be completed on the buildings in the spring of 2022. Restaurants will occupy the lower levels of the Wert’s Grove and Rarey’s Port buildings. They include: Delaney’s Diner – a breakfast, lunch, brunch restaurant in the Rarey’s Port building; Preston’s: A Burger Joint and Honey’s Fried Chicken, in the Wert’s Grove building; and Mmelo Confectionary & Café – a high-end chocolates and confections place that also offers breads and pastries, a full lunch and dinner menu, and coffee and espresso – in the Wert’s Grove building.
