Calling it “the next phase of the renaissance and resurgence happening across Woodlawn,” Chicago Mayor Emanuel broke ground on a new Jewel-Osco on the northwest corner of 61st Street and Cottage Grove Avenue. The 48,000-square-foot grocery store and drive-through pharmacy will be developed by a joint venture of Terraco and DL3, which will lease the facility to Jewel-Osco.
“Woodlawn is in the midst of a renaissance, and we are pleased to partner with Mayor Emanuel to bring Woodlawn its first full-service grocery store in over 40 years,” said Leon Walker, managing partner of DL3. He said the new store would “lead to even more revitalization efforts.”
The new supermarket is the latest in a flurry of developments in the area. These include a new residence hall for University of Chicago, Woodlawn’s first new market-rate apartment complex in decades, MetroSquash and the upcoming modernization of the 63rd and Cottage CTA station.
