Construction and renovation in Southport Corridor

This pile of dirt will be your much needed, newly built Jewel Food Store!
I have a couple new listings in Lakeview's Southport Corridor. While taking a walk down this very familiar street (I worked in some of the restaurants over 10 years ago as the boom hit) I noticed a little bit of new construction and renovation going on... both residential and commercial.

The old Jewel grocery store was torn down and is making way for a brand new joint with better elbow room and parking.

I passed this new construction condo development across from the Blaine school. It has been rare in this market to see progress on in-fill new construction. I don't see these units on the MLS yet and there is only one other new construction development currently selling on North Southport Ave from Belmont (3200 N) to Irving Park Road (4000 N).

New construction and newer construction three bedrooms, two baths condos of different varieties can and do sell for over $600,000 on North Southport Ave.

It's good to see this corner retail spot getting a face lift... the recession may be ending for many and retail remains popular on North Southport. Does anyone remember what this was at Southport and Grace?

There was a dentist in that office space. He just moved a cross the street a few months ago.
