My guess as well, which is a shame considering its location adjacent to a CTA stop. Hopefully they can turn it into a well designed multi use parking structure with retail on the first floor, instead of just leaving it as a lot. Demand generated by the Uptown would probably mean there would be a need for a lot more spots than the lot could currently provide.

I doubt it. The lot will probably continue as a surface lot, just reserved for high-priced valet operations at the theatre. You, me, and the rest of the regular folks can just take the Red Line like plebs.

Maybe it's just me but I read the Lawrence lot sale differently. Seems zoned permissively, qualifies for TOD, in a market with clear demand for rentals...

The Lawrence lot actually had a parking structure on it at one time.
