New Lakeview Dominick's - and 80 condos - planned for Broadway

We hear plans are getting underway on a replacement Dominick's grocery store in Lakeview - on Broadway just north of Wellington. This is the site of a fire that demolished the previous Dominick's located there.

The sale of the property to new owners was finalized Tuesday. Plans include the new store plus approximately 80 condominiums. We hear groundbreaking could take place this fall (2007) with construction taking about 9 months to a year.

Residents have been anxiously awaiting news of the prospect of a replacement neighborhood grocery store since the original Dominick's was gutted in a spectacular fire in June 2005. A temporary bank and parking lot occupy the space currently.
