I live in Corktown too and the grocery scene is pretty dismal. We are just far enough away from all 3 closest stores that it's a huge pain to shop.

How about the "augusta lofts" building - lots of space to bump that out a bit toward the street for a bigger footprint. Or have a parking lot I suppose. The second floor could be offices - or better yet, a restaurant or cafe. That building is a terrible location for residential - whoever came up with that plan must have been purely joking.

Another spot that comes to mind is the mirage nightclub (formerly modern india buffet) - nice large footprint and there's a parking lot next to it too.

My dream is to see groceries in the delta bingo space, but it will be a while before we get their claws out of the downtown I think.

The Hasty Market on John (in Corktown) is actually pretty close to full service - I almost always find what I need there in a pinch. And it is open 24/365 too... But in the end it's a glorified convenience store with prices to match.
