^ Friends of the Parks, where are you?

Either way, it'll probably be a good money generator

Given that it's a "temporary" exhibit they sure are doing a lot of construction. It's got a huge concrete pad poured so it doesn't seem that temporary. Can't imagine the money generation aspect being that lucrative given the upfront cost. Also seems like a pretty strange spot for a pop-up shop.

Nevermind. Found this article. https://chicago.curbed.com/2018/11/2...rtherly-island

This seriously can't be what they are tearing the crap out of the green space for?!

wtf

Wait - was that article from last apt 1 or something?

Speaking of Northerly Island, I wish someone would build something on top of the Adler lot...

Rahm is easily the greatest mayor in Chicago history and probably ranks up there among all mayors in all cities in US history. Too bad we are losing him, another term and he may have permanently rooted out the machine once and for all especially given Burke's recent downfall.

It's Friends of the Parking Lot, get it straight. As such they don't give a shit when actual parks are bulldozed for a museum. They just don't want their precious tailgating hangout vandalized.

^ The public blowback, should FOTPL interfere with Pop-culture's beloved Hamilton would be far greater than "resisting" an old, white billionaire George Lucas's monument to capitalism (the horror!). I am sure the FOTPL board is loaded with Hamilton die-hards anyway.

At the very least, it will indeed be a money-generator. Hopefully they'll be paying property taxes.

Just how would a Park District concessionaire be assessed property taxes?

^If the "Experience" is a for-profit entity, located on public land, it absolutely should be paying property and income taxes. I can picture the City of Chicago leasing the land out for a dollar a month and tax-free.

Don't forget about fuel taxes, checkout bag taxes, liquid nicotine taxes, and O'Hare landing fees.

UIC has unveiled the three finalists for the planned Center for the Performing Arts:
- JohnsonMarklee
- Morphosis
- OMA/Rem Koolhaas
Each finalist has teamed with a local architect, presumably as the AOR, once the project is awarded. I think this has the potential to be a standout piece of architecture, especially given the prominent location at Harrison and Halsted. The interesting thing is that the recently released campus master plan shows this specific building as being a two-phase project..

According to this map it will be the NW corner:

Excited to see a rendering of the final design – should have a big impact at that corner.
