New Grocery Store Coming to Chicago Gayborhood

Mariano’s Fresh MarketMariano’s Fresh Market, a Chicago-area grocery store brand, has been given approval to build a new development at 3030 N. Broadway, just south of Boystown’s Broadway corridor. In addition to a two-story, 71,000 sq. ft. grocery store, the new commercial structure will also house a 40,000 sq. ft. XSport Fitness.

The now-defunct Dominick’s Finer Foods once occupied the location near Broadway and Wellington Ave., until a fire destroyed it in 2005. It has since served as a parking lot.

Ald. Tom Tunney’s 44th Ward office says that the building will be five stories tall, rising to 79 ft. There will be two levels of covered parking sandwiched between retail floors, providing about 250 parking spaces. An additional 30 spaces of parking will be located at the west end of the development.
