UPTOWN — When developers pitched the controversial development for the Clarendon Montrose Tax Increment Finance district, one huge concern shared by supporters and naysayers alike was what grocer would fill the retail space.

According to Uptown Update, neighbors now have an answer: Treasure Island Foods.

Treasure Island Foods and the development company Harlem Irving Companies both refused to comment, but a flier from developers shows the grocer as the 30,000-square-foot main retail tenant. A 6,000-square-foot retail space is still available, according to the flier.

Treasure Island Foods bills itself as "America's most European Supermarket." Owners Christ Kamberos and his brother opened the first store in 1973 and there are now seven in Chicago and suburban Wilmette, according to its website.

It has nearby locations at 3460 N. Broadway and 2121 N. Clybourn Ave., according to the website.

The demolition of Maryville Academy is expected to happen soon, but no date has been set.
