Southport Corridor Jewel coming along...sort of

I took this shot of construction progress from my truck while driving south on the 3600 block of North Southport Avenue in Lakeview. The new Jewel Food Store is slated for fall 2010. Even though I live in Ravenswood, I would stop at this location often for a cheap lunch or other items while criss-crossing the north side.

Having a grocery store within a few blocks walk may be one of the more underrated amenities factored in when searching for a home. I'm not sure I hear that in my Top 5 "must haves" from clients... or maybe it's already under the umbrella of "good location". Southport Corridor is a highly desired and relatively expensive area due to amenities like a central grocery store. The area definitely deserves an improvement over the old Jewel.
