I expect this was built as a large grocery store and was then superseded by even larger stores with more parking at at the edge of the neighborhood. Which is really where they belong. It looks as though this building is struggling for tenants, despite its half-hearted renovation.
This is located on what was basically four separate parcels which originally contained two single family homes and connected two-flats. Lots which don't redevelop to match the predominant density of a commercial area typically redevelop later at a higher intensity.
But even in 1963 why did this seem like a good idea? I wouldn't be surprised to see this replaced at some point. It's perfect for a large transit-oriented development.
