Nice! I love that building. I wish we had more buildings on that scale on Broadway nearby.

^ With the 710 apartments being delivered by Cedar Street / Flats, as well, that's going to be a much busier intersection in a couple of years.

they need to do a road diet to the north of foster. fully protected bike lane, streetscaping, better ped crossings etc. That would help. Aside from that, hopefully some of those strip malls start getting redeveloped after the red line project is finished.

I haven't heard anything about the Double Door in months. Someone familiar with the matter told me the lease wasn't even signed when Cappleman made the announcement ...

I also wonder how the Uptown Theater is going. Last article I read a couple months ago said they still need $40MM.

West Loop condo project that drew NIMBY complaints that led Ald Burnett to walk out of a community meeting got approved:

Once LL moves on, Burnett for Mayor?

have always been skeptical of the uptown theater rehab and cappleman is a clown, so no surprise about the double door

This should probably be moved to the politics thread but I know Walter quite well... think he would be a very good Mayor. I have seen lots of growth out of him through the years and think he has intellect and gravitas to be a serious threat should he decide to run / once LL leaves office that is.

Another guy that I know really well is Brookins. He has not been in the news much lately but he is relative juggernaut on the far south side. He is another guy that I have seen substantial growth from through the years / could possibly make a run at Mayor down the road.

He's also just funny as hell. Burnett is always cracking me up.

Agreed, he’s super funny.

Isn’t he an ex-con though? I’ve heard rumblings of mafia ties? Can’t imagine those aspects faring well in a city-wide election.

Crossing Broadway in Edgewater is a colossal pain in the ass. I wouldn't doubt that the Andersonville neighborhood groups want to keep it that way, lest any "urban" folks from the other side infiltrate their neighborhood.

"colossal pain in the ass"?

i used to live near broadway in edgewater. i never had issues crossing broadway. walk to the corner, wait for the walk sign, and cross. kinda like every other major street crossing in the city (ashland, irving, western, etc.).

now, is broadway too much of an auto-sewer through there with too much auto-oriented commercial development (strip malls & drive-thrus)? yes, absolutely, but crossing broadway in its current state is not terribly difficult.

So from what I've heard the reason the Broadway streetscaping and bike lanes end at Foster is that Broadway from Foster to Bryn Mawr/Ridge is because Broadway in that stretch is US 14. Considering Ridge is also US-14 and is 4 lanes jammed down the middle of Edgewater, I wouldn't expect to see the FHA just go along with reducing capacity on Broadway anytime soon. The city had their chance when they resurfaced it about 2-3 years ago anyways and maintained the status quo.

You don't have to reduce capacity, just re-route US-14 onto Hollywood and Lake Shore Drive. That's always gonna be an auto sewer anyway. Plus, US-14 ends entirely at Broadway/Foster (which is not a major destination) so a re-route might actually make more navigational sense than the current arrangement. On Lake Shore Drive you could put in much larger signs at the Foster ramp to indicate the US-14/41 split.

But yes, CDOT can't just unilaterally put in a road diet on a US highway, the road is controlled by IDOT and FHA would need to sign off on any changes to the design or routing.

Stupid fucking Aldermen.

How about pretending for one second that it's a pain in the ass to develop real estate, and people need to make money doing it.

If you aren't going to be reasonable then fuck off. And now a smaller project with zero affordable units will go forward as of right.

I'm betting we will begin to see more and more of this happen--build what zoning allows and screw dealing with activist Aldermen.
