The Associated Supermarket that was burned out in a fire four years ago will be returning to the corner of 5th Avenue and 17th Street in Greenwood Heights. We found this rendering on the fence at 617 5th Avenue, beneath a big green banner announcing “Marketplace ‘Coming Soon'” (though we’re unsure why there are quotes around “coming soon”).
Construction will finish this spring, according to the sign on the fence. Owner Clarista Realty Group is also repairing the building’s 10 apartments, according to permits.
South Slope News was the first to report that Associated would return. Click through the jump to see a picture of the building.
