A motel?

I told you my compromise. Keep the building, turn the parking into a plaza.

I like history. I like style. I don't insist that everything be dense.

But damn it, I have no tolerance for a surface parking lot downtown. None. Zilch. Nada. And if we're gonna have one, I'll be damned if it's landmarked!

Nope. IIRC, they have a crane permit but not foundation.

I assume they need to sell some more condos. 61 W. Erie is probably in the same boat...

Here's exactly what the permit states with an estimated cost of $3M

"CONSTRUCTION OF ENCLOSED 1,055 SF PROJECTOR PLATFORM AND ASSOCIATED INFRASTRUCTURE IN EXISTING RIVER WALK STRUCTURE. PLATFORM ENCLOSURE TO HOUSE PROJECTORS FOR MERCHANDISE MART ART ON THE MART DISPLAY. PROJECTION CONTENT WILL NOT INCLUDE ANY COMMERCIAL MESSAGING."


-------------

Also I noticed demolition permits for 3334 N Clark St, 3346 N Clark St, 3366 N Clark St, and 3401 N Clark St. Are these being demolished for the flyover?

Doesn't form follow function for the RnR McDonald's, then? A drive thru is bad but the parking lot for a shitty hotel is okay?

Yep - issued on 3/15 with an estimated cost at just under $1M. Not bad for the neighborhood, actually - would be interesting to see if it'll be open past midnight.

I have a soft spot for that Googie place that is Ohio house as well. I hope it can survive. Urban Politican compromise could actually work. But that does take away the "mo" out of "motel"..

That's a wild thought experiment. What would have to be the circumstances under which a surface parking lot would receive landmark status in downtown Chicago?

Walgreens is far from my favorite chain, but that area badly needs a drugstore

So crazy to think a church can be turned into condos in an economically feasible way from a sales perspective. This was something that would not really be attempted 10 to 20 years ago, but nowadays it would be considered pretty chic and hip to live in something like this.

Really glad St. Boniface will be sticking around. Its a gorgeous building.

So unique and so cool. Reminds me of that brooklyn conversion on a much, much smaller scale.

I agree, really cool. There are many church-to-condo/apt conversions on the North and NW sides of the city. They tend to sell well aside from the one or two odd sized units that tend to get created.

This isn't accurate at all...There are several Church to residential conversions that have happened 10 to 20 years ago, two that immediately come to mind are one at Barry / Seminary and Barry / Kenmore in Lakeview, there is another one in Lakeview as well, but I'm blanking on the intersection, plus one or two on the west side...I'll provide links later when I'm not on my phone.

I was looking at this place in Baltimore when I first moved here.

https://www.google.com/maps/@39.2792...7i13312!8i6656

I wonder when they converted it.
