In the murky border regions of Bucktown and Lincoln Park/Clybourn Corridor, a four-acre triangular parcel is being targeted for a new 75,000-square-foot Mariano's Fresh Market. Crain's broke the news on Friday that parent company Roundy's Supermarkets has signed a 20-year lease. This site is only 1.5 miles northwest of another planned Mariano's, at the New City redevelopment, but market studies show little interference. This site was once positioned for a pre-crash apartment development calling for 300 units and 200,000 square feet of retail. Sad story. But hey, you can't argue with a quality supermarket at this location. Here's one sucky side effect: The site clearing soon to come will force the relocation of the non-profit ReBuilding Exchange that intercepts construction materials and other home fixtures on their way to the landfill.
