This is pretty sick, brick pavers for a whole block of Prairie between the hotel and stadium:

Has there been any new updates, information, or rumors about the proposed 10 story hotel/20 story apartment development at 2109 S Wabash? (NE corner Cermak/Wabash) - I believe the rezoning was approved over a year ago, followed by complete radio silence.

This spring all of the retail leases in the little strip mall on the site were terminated and the parking lot has been fenced off. Last I was down there the Muffler place on the corner was still doing business. That's the most I have to say for an update.

Bob Dylan and Mavis Staples as the very first event at your new arena is a pretty huge win.

I don't have a picture to share, but I noticed that the Marriott building has a bright red strip of LED lights at night that runs half the length of the roofline and then down that diagonal separating the two shades of blue in the glass. That, and the glowing red Marriott M is quite striking at night.

Pretty nice building from the outside. A welcome addition to the neighborhood.

The added street activity and revenue for nearby businesses will be the biggest win IMO though.

Thanks for the pics. I have to say that the canyon between Lexington Park condos The LEX Apartments and the McHugh hotel building looks very impressive.

I don't think you're drunk so I'll answer your questions. In that last photo, the Cermak-McCormick Place station on the Englewood-Jackson Park line is in the bottom left foreground. The 95th Cermak-Chinatown stop is a couple of blocks to the west. The Metra Electric and South Shore lines stop right under McCormick Place.

Not sure about the hotel amenities.

BTW. The Howard was running above ground tonight on the Loop L. A train pulled in to Adams/Wabash packed with boozy af, jolly DePaul students going back up to Fullerton.

The CTA station that is commonly mentioned is Cermak/McCormick on the Green Line. It is only a few blocks to walk, and the hood is pretty safe these days, unlike a decade ago.

It's actually on the green line (Cermak-McCormick). The red line is a little further West (Cermak-Chinatown).

This strikes me as kinda weird, but I guess it depends on how you look at it. I worked at Ray Graham about 15-20 years ago and while I was a poor college kid that didn't have much for anyone to take, I didn't consider the area "unsafe".

At least not during the work hours when I would be there. I can only assume you're working on a different metric that makes the area maybe a nice place to actually live.
