   Good news for the growing resident population in the Delmar Loop:  A grocery store is coming.  

   Washington University will formally announce on Thursday that specialty grocer Global Foods Market has agreed to lease nearly 15,000 square feet in the five-story student apartment building going up at Delmar and Eastgate.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that it will be the second Global Foods Market in the metro area.  The first opened in Kirkwood in 1999.

Loop streetcars get final approval

Streetcars will be returning to the Delmar Loop. Monday evening, the University City Council unanimously approved "conditional use" permits for the Loop Trolley Company.

Plans call for the streetcars to run down Delmar to DeBalivier, then south to the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park.

The project is expected to cost around $40 million, with $25 million coming from a federal grant.

The trolley should be up and running by late summer of 2014.
