WTF, they were probably offered a mint to get out of there a year ago so that land could be incorporated into the massive development enveloping the property. Why sell out now?

^It looks like Sports World, another holdout, is staying put. The owner must not be willing to give up that kind of proximity to Wrigley.

^ Normally I'd agree, but its such a nondescript building. We've seen much better buildings get demolished in the name of progress in this neighborhood.

The one that still bothers me was the demolition of the old Sports Corner a few years back. Replaced with an ugly replica-ish building, with no added density.

I remember that, I walked out the day after Christmas and the building was just....gone. Poof. They did that with no real notice, it was so odd.

I'm at least glad the replica is a touch better than most new construction they put up as far as detail and street presence. True though it really has no density other than a big open bar for two floors and then a partially enclosed third floor.

That sports store on the corner of Addison and Clark is going to look even more plain, cinder blocked and worthless once everything else is complete on the opposing corners. I hate that building.

Anyone know the reason why they switched the nuveen logo at wrigley but not on top of 333 lake? I personally prefer the old one.

My guess is Wrigley first because it was quicker, easier, cheaper, frequently on national TV. And if they hadn't done it before the season, they would have had to wait until after the season.

They will get around to changing the sign at the top of the 480+ building
