After months of construction, two neighborhood grocery stores that were demolished to make way for new mixed-use developments are reopening in their original locations.
The Jewel-Osco store that had for years anchored the Clark and Division intersection of the Gold Coast is scheduled to reopen on June 28th, DNAinfo reports. What was formerly a single-story retail building with a sprawling surface parking lot has been replaced with a new 35-story tower and a new grocery store. The previous Jewel supermarket at 1210 N. Clark Street has made way for a new and expanded 58,000-square-foot flagship store and parking garage. The new rental tower next door will feature 390 rental apartments.
Meanwhile in Bucktown, the Aldi store along Milwaukee Avenue is prepping for its return. According to DNAinfo, the Aldi at 1753 N. Milwaukee Avenue is slated to reopen on June 15. Similar to the Gold Coast Jewel, the Bucktown Aldi was previously a single-story supermarket surrounded by a surface parking lot. The store is being replaced with a larger mixed-use development that will deliver 100 new rental apartments and a new and improved a 18,000-square-foot Aldi grocery store on the ground level.
