What's the issue with the Webster bridge? I know the Ashland bridge is deteriorating, but it just needs a preservation workover, not a reconstruction.
It's not the greatest for residential, but then again it's hardly the worst. It's close to the freeway, has a Metra stop nearby, is served by Ashland and Armitage buses, is walking distance to the Webster/Southport area of Lincoln Park with a theatre and other retail, and is near a Best Buy and Kohl's along Elston. So, yeah, it looks like hell, but functionally it's actually pretty decent - especially with the addition of a grocery store.
