The Tenderloin is on the rise, says the word on the street; a proposed 14-story mixed-use development promises to deliver one of the underdog's most dire needs: a grocery store.

Not in the 'Loin— nonprofit crusaders have been been fighting for over two years to secure a discount store in the area; the $5 million project at Eddy and Taylor Streets will bring new options to the area while creating additional affordable housing in the city's most dense neighborhood. Corner markets do pepper the area. However, as one resident called it on the table: "they tend to sell more alcohol than food."
