Design wise, the Navy Pier Hotel is a dud

But I expect that commercially it will be a huge success. I’m wagering it will even end up getting expanded some day in the future

^^They are very serious about documenting the progress. Typically this is a sign of strength in the development. I would doubt construction is halted.

Construction fencing up around the Pierre's Bakery site in Logan that Rosa tried to downzone. You lose again Carlos and ensure less affordable housing in the process...

Did they demolish it yet? They got the demo permits a few weeks ago I think.

Saw the fencing go up this week. I hope they don't put some suburban bs on the riverfront site just north of here, but I guess Elston from Fullerton to Diversey is pretty much a lost cause anyway.

Quote:
Mid-America Asset Management, which Vienna hired to oversee the redevelopment of its nearly 9-acre riverfront property, applied for permits this month to begin construction on one of two buildings planned for 1942 West Fullerton Avenue, city records show...

...In 2015, at the height of a years long city effort to untangle the six-way intersection of Fullerton, Elston and Damen avenues, Vienna unveiled plans to erect a pair of retail buildings on a curved 2.5-acre island of property surrounded by the reconfigured roads.

One of the buildings will be fully leased by a Chick-Fil-A restaurant, and Panera will take about 6,000 square feet — roughly half the space — in an adjacent building.

Sorry, what's being built there?

It's being crunched into by an excavator as of today.

At this point further increases in the destruction of affordable housing in his ward are his problem, he owns the lack of results.

Can't wait to see a brand new building replace a vacant lot with productive uses, new homes for those moving into the area, and a tax producing structure.

^^^ That building was designed for a vertical addition. It's doubtful that the original architects and engineers designed it for a setback with more height to the back. So I don't think what you are suggesting would have been possible without serious modifications to the original structure.

Permit was issued on Monday to redevelop the former Sears on Lawrence (1900 W Lawrence & Wolcott) to add another floor onto it, with ground floor retail, and 59 total units with 44 parking spots.

^ cool! Thanks for the update.

60 new units will help offset some of the unit loss from all of the recent 2-flat deconversions in Lincoln Square.

TimeLine Theatre Selects Architect For New Location On Broadway

Quote:
"TimeLine announced in December 2018 that it had purchased property in Uptown—encompassing a five-story, 45,500-square-foot warehouse building plus a vacant lot near the corner of Broadway and Argyle—to be the site of its new home. Preliminary plans feature two intimate and flexible black box theatres seating up to 250 and 150 audience members, respectively.

^ as a timeline subscriber for the past 7 years, i'm SOOOOOO excited for this project.

it's beyond perfect that this theater company, whose whole mission is to produce plays set in history to inform the present, has chosen to rehab this old historical structure into their new home.

and another good shot in the arm for the uptown entertainment district.

it's ALL win!
