You know what isn't good for property values? Killing the city's history. I would be disgusted by the city if they removed the tracks. All in the name of another dollar though, huh? There are things more important in life than money...

Maybe the dome is for an operations center for the development. But instead of a bland temporary trailer, they decided to make a dome to help woo Amazon with the idea that Amazon will be coming to visit in the next few months, and make a sales pitch and a press event there onsite with the skyline as a backdrop.
For a big corporation this kind of thing just comes out of the marketing budget, it's peanuts to them to help woo a massive whale of a customer.

Amazon could decide to start out in the post Office building as that would be ready to go for them by next year, and then while they are moving in they could also start construction on the related site and build out a larger campus there, a totally blank slate right near downtown. Although new construction would take a couple years. So they could have the speed to move in right away with the flexibility of new construction down the road. Win win.

Potentially huge residential development coming to Goose Island:

1,000 apartments for Goose Island? Crain's

"Onni Group is lining up a deal to buy an eight-acre maintenance facility site from bus company Greyhound on the southern tip of Goose Island, according to multiple sources.

The agreement still could fall apart, and a spokesman for Onni and Greyhound's broker declined to comment. But one source familiar with the prospective buyer's vision said Onni is mulling building as many as 1,000 residential units on land known for its long industrial history."

they could really do something epic here at the fork in the river... here's to hoping something better than that horrible bus facility gets built soon!

Logan Square Development

Saw this on my walk to the California Blue Line stop. It is one of a number of similar developments on Lyndale, between Kedzie and California. This was 3 distinct lots with wood-framed cottages, now 1 large condo building. Still unsure how many units will be available, looks like 4-6.

If my newish Logan Square condo building is any indication, it will be filled 100% with young families. It's so bad we have a stroller parking issue in our lobby.

There are a handful of permits issued for smaller 3 or so unit buildings on Lyndale in the last year or so.

I've seen probably 10-12 tear-downs on this one street. It started on Lyndale, east of Sacramento about 2 years ago and has migrated west towards Kedzie.

Also snapped these two on today's commute:
California and Fullerton (replaces old car wash)


Armitage and Milwaukee (replaces old parking lot)
