Let the 101 North Ave games begin. Two demolition permits were issued yesterday for 101 W North Ave and 109 W North Ave, and then another for 1546 N Clark which will wreck most of the theater building, but they'll keep/preserve the facade per the permit.

Speaking of North Ave, today’s Tribune has a rendering of a 8 or 9 story building planned next to Steppenwolf Theatre, or a historic property owned by them that they are selling.

I don’t have a Tribune subscription so I can’t read the article....

They are selling Yondorf Hall (758 W North Ave) to CA Ventures and Springbank Real Estate Group. The new building would be built on the parking lot to the east of that (next to the train tracks)

Quote:
The eight-story building, designed by Antunovich Associates, would have ground-floor retail, 11 covered parking spaces and 92 apartments, the plans show. More than half of the units would be studios of 402 square feet or smaller.
Quote:
The real estate sale will help pay for the new building with a 400-seat theater, which will replace the 299-seat Upstairs Theatre on its main campus, St. Germaine said. Steppenwolf also has theaters with 515 and 80 seats.

“The proposed development is essential to Steppenwolf Theatre Company’s future and continued investment in the local community,” Executive Director David Schmitz said in a statement.

As part of the sale-leaseback deal, Steppenwolf will pay rent to keep using Yondorf for three years, St. Germaine said.

^ Thanks. Looks like another TOD for the North/Clybourn district. The more the better—I hope to see this area slowly transformed over the years, and hopefully some of those God awful strip malls will be redeveloped.

Also, what is this ‘Upstairs Theatre’ that is being redeveloped? Couldn’t find a rendering. Is that a separate structure that’s being demolished?

Upstairs Theatre is a theater within their main building. What I gather is..they are selling the building featured in the article to get money to build a brand new theater to basically move the Upstairs Theatre to. Would be cool if it goes on the vacant lot just south of the main building or perhaps they could put it on the vacant lot just north of the main building . Or buy that terrible strip mall on North Ave nearby, tear it down and put it there

BTW, Amazon could be putting their new Go grocery store (the one without any check outs at all)in the Loop at 203 N LaSalle St. Permit issued the other day for an "Amazon Store" there and the other day they announced they are going to put this store in 6 cities.

I think somebody misinterpreted the filing. It's an "Amazon store" with 625 sqft of frontage and 2,000 sqft of "back room". This is indicative of one of those Amazon pickup/dropoff locations where it's mostly a backroom with boxes, and then some lockers and a help desk in the 'retail' portion. I doubt it's an Amazon GO store with 625 sqft of retail space. The Go store in Seattle is 3 times larger than that.

Edit: Marothisu, I see you replied to my comment on Curbed saying those are only with-in other stores such as Whole Foods. That's not always true. They've started opening up independent storefronts. There's two in Lincoln Park. One near Clark & Diversey and another at Webster & Sheffield. Here's what it looks like: https://www.google.com/maps/uv?hl=en...AEAQoioImAEwDg

Those stores can actually be really helpful because you can do 'boxless' returns. Much better than having to print stuff out, pack it and ship it back via UPS.

^ Nobody misinterpreted it and nobody stated that it will be one of those grocery stores. My post and the article were both definitely "I wonder if..." since they just announced expanding into a few other cities to do this. I've never seen an actual dedicated store for them outside of the book store - I've only seen pickups inside of other stores like another grocery store.

Basically if it's a book store or one of those then it's a huge "who cares" - the grocery store stuff is pretty interesting from a few angles, so I think IF it were that, then it's newsworthy. Knowing everything though, you're probably right.

Could this mean these will be the final six contenders for Amazon HQ2?

I wish CTA would smooth out those sharp curves on the Brown Line at North Ave before that area gets filled in with development. The sharp curves are halfway between Armitage and Sedgwick, where the train should be traveling at high speed...

Awww come on, it's not all about efficiency!

One of the greatest things about the Brown Line is those sharp turns right next to peoples' windows, where you can peer in and see a guy watching TV or some girl getting undressed...

Seriously, wannabe cities like Atlanta, Dallas and the like will never build the damn Brown line. Let it remain a bit windy and rickety just for the hell of it.

LOL probably not, but I do enjoy the "Any sign possible is a sign!" that all cities have about this thing.

I would think they are unrelated. Chicago is a huge market, and one Amazon would want to get in on ASAP with their new grocery store concept.

Still, not like it's something that would hurt the city's chances.
