Cornerstone Apartments

According to an ITB from Madison Construction- 65 fresh apartments coming to Hyde Park area. 24 rehabs at 4950 S Langley, 21 rehabs at 5033 S Evans and 3 new 3-story apartment buildings in the 600 block of E 50th. This is all near the northeast corner of Washington Park. Good for the neighborhood.

The Hyde Park boom is growing and starting to push gentrification into the surrounding areas which is really the first step the South Side needs before we can see widespread change down there. Hyde Park is the last foothold of growth on the south side and can send out tendrils in all directions if it takes the next step from a nice area because U of C keeps it nice to a nice area because it is a nice place to live with good amenities.

I hope someone will post pictures of the Vue53 site and the LaQuinta Hotel renovation. I am not in the area and curious to see how these are coming along. Thank you!

How do you not understand that? I am basically saying Hyde Park is and has always been sorta the last foothold of gentrification on the South Side. All the neighborhoods around it were wiped out and went South. Now with Hyde Park booming so hard, growth and redevelopment is starting to creep slowly out of Hyde Park and into the surrounding areas that were pretty well bombed out by the race riots and decades of institutionalized poverty.

Oh, what I was saying is that U of C has been the only reason Hyde Park stayed "nice", but now it is transition to an area that more or less stands on it's own with a population outside of the U of C dependent population. In other words: there seems to now be a much larger population of people living in Hyde Park that are NOT affiliated with U of C. I think this is an important step to take in terms of getting people to stick around that area after they graduate building the population living in the area and therefore pushing the gentrification to creep outwards in search of more housing stock.

From talking with a friend I've heard some buzz that The Promontory is aiming to open in July but haven't set a final date yet.

Looks like Marshalls will in fact take most of the second floor retail space in City Hyde Park.

If we can get some good developments in Bronzeville then Hyde Park and Kenwood could be connected directly to downtown without being surrounded by tough neighborhoods.

There's been a bunch of small developments to go up in Bronzeville in the last few years..a sizable one is nearing completion, actually.

I got an exact height today for City Hyde Park - it will be 172'-0.5" (52.4 m) tall. Here are some photos taken today:



EDIT: I made a 4-inch adjustment based on closer reading of the elevations. The figure above is correct now.

Full permit for City Hyde Park was issued on the 15th. I'm eager to see it rise out of the ground soon.

^ That's great news!

Also, saw that McHugh is taking subcontractor bids for Vue53 this week.

Does anybody know the status of that nuisance lawsuit that was filed against it? Hopefully it's already been tossed, or will be shortly, so that this project can get going in the next month or so as well......

It's not really clear what the hell is going on with Vue53. I live a block away from the site and they posted this notice months ago:

And the date fits with a foundation permit that was issued on May 21.
The HP NIMBYs filed an appeal back in July, but I haven't heard anything since other than a mention somewhere that construction is to start in September. It sounds like if McHugh is taking bids things finally might be back on track.
