An anonymous tipster sent us over some information about the new Mariano's Fresh Market that is coming to South Clark street (between 16th and 17th street):
Here are some preliminary drawings showing the proposed design/layout for the Mariano’s looking to go on the corner of 17th & Clark (drawings attached, page 6 shows the best building design shots). They are stating a 6/1/12 construction start date, but unfortunately there are still in the conceptual/prelim pricing stage.
They make it sound like the June 1st start date isn't possible. We will see.
Looks good to us and looks like it would be a good addition to the relatively desolate strip of South Clark.
