If he builds it, a supermarket will come. John Catsimatidis tells the Daily News that if work begins on his maybe-it’ll-happen-maybe-it-won’t project at 162 Myrtle within the next couple months, a supermarket and Duane Reade “should be done within a year if the world doesn’t fall apart with the real estate market.” The old Associated on Myrtle was torn down to make way for development, leaving many residents in nearby public housing without an easy grocery option. Councilwoman Letitia James says she doesn’t totally buy Catsimatidis’s promise to open a supermarket as part of his 660-unit, mixed-use, multi-building project. “It’s wonderful if that’s the case, but I’ll need to see it in writing,” says James.
