The existing building already has one off of Morgan, and presumably they can repurpose that one into the new development without needing re-approval from CDOT.

There is green mesh fencing around the 676 N Lasalle parking lot as of yesterday. Parking lot is empty. Planters on sidewalk were removed a week ago. Construction must be imminent.

Nice to see this project redone with the Ahlschlager building facade intact, even if the rendering looks a little clumsy (could just be the lack of detail in the rendering though):

I'm not agaisnt fire escapes in general, I just don't think they belong on the fronts of buildings. Like I said, I have one myself and you are right, it's a great place for the tenants to keep a couple of potted plants and a small bench. I like it because the tenants in one unit that it accesses smoke and they use it as their smoker's outpost keeping them from being tempted to do it inside or from sitting outside the front door annoying the other tenants.

I'd be happy to see a library at either of those sites. Keep in mind, the Coyne site is closer to the center of the gap between other nearby libraries. And, especially with the prospect of PMDs being eroded, it could be a development site as well.

Does anybody know when the 35th St pedestrian bridge over LSD is supposed to open to the public? I thought it was supposed to open in October but when I checked it a couple of weeks ago it still wasn't open but looked to be close to done.

Ah ok, sorry I thought you were referring to the Al's Beef by the hotel on Clark in Wrigleyville, close to the Wheelhouse Hotel that is being built there...I saw your post, and mistakenly thought you were referring to the Al's Beef, which is close to the closed Einstein Bros.

+1, I love the visual aesthetic that all of these things you listed, deliver to the urban fabric/urban environment. These types of objects help to create the vibe that so many hold hold dear, in city neighborhoods etc.

I love downtown Evanston.

Had to say that. Carry on, lads...

Steely the other day I believe I walked by your company's office.

Great, that site has been vacant for quite a while.

There was a two story double lot commercial building there before, nothing special. But they tore it down this summer. Was wondering how quickly they'd break ground.

I think you are talking about the building just east of the lot. The majority of the property, which is the lot to the west, has been vacant since at least 2007. Here is a better look. The development would be that building on the left and the lot on the right
