i agree, it doesn't make any sense, but it's apparently the way the forum software code is written, at least that's what i've been told by the higher-ups. apparently, only specific building project threads in the development sub-forums can receive tags for whatever stupid reason.

well, that's why i'm now just deleting off-topic political stuff from the development threads, instead of moving it, to force people to go find the appropriate chicago general discussion thread in the midwest sub-forum.

it's not rocket science.

Ok, my offer stands that I could fix this with a workaround query. I'm guessing the higher ups don't really understand how the code works.

Developer Buys Historic Hollander Moving Site, Plans Boutique Offices With Restaurant, Apartments



LOGAN SQUARE — The 106-year-old Hollander Storage & Moving building site on Milwaukee Avenue will soon see new life as a mixed-use development.

About a year after hitting the market, the five-story masonry building at 2418 N. Milwaukee Ave., plus the neighboring single-story annex and adjoining parking lot, now belong to GW Properties. The Chicago-based developer officially bought the properties this week, according to broker Jim Cummings of Newmark Knight Frank.

The plan is to restore the Hollander building to its former glory and then convert it into boutique offices with a restaurant on the ground floor, according to Mitch Goltz, principal of GW Properties.

excellent! i missed this one while i was out of town.

it's so nice to see those god-awful used car dealerships along western getting replaced by actual urban development.

they're fast becoming an endangered species along that stretch, thank pizza god!

I'm the neighborhood association president of that area (Hawthorne Neighbors). It's going to be another pizza joint, Happy Camper, the same folks that did this one:

http://www.happycamperchicago.com/

They brought a rendering to our past meeting, I don't have it digitally, but it's kind of an open air 2-story set up.

Finally decided to go ahead and join as I've been more active up in the Lakeview area, and involved in retail development as a career.

Anyhow, was up in Wrigleyville earlier and noticed the former parking garage at 3458 N. Clark is under construction. Rare, quite rare, that something slips through but never recall seeing news for the site across from the Wheelhouse Hotel parcel.

Always interested in a new/bar restaurant I can get to, figure it to be as much so curious if anyone knew about the future of that site. Pardon the long introduction, hopefully over the years of lurking I'll know how to adhere to the written (and unwritten) forum rules

Awesome! I love Happy Camper. A welcome addition to a section of Clark Street that needs a boost.

Looking at GW's website gives me pause. They are strip-mall developers extraordinaire. Granted, it's just a warehouse, but the first level is nicely finished with heavy, well-defined piers and other nice masonry work. Hopefully at least that much is salvaged (they'll have to blow out the rest of the street-facing elevation, I'd think, hopefully sans cornice).

it seems to be the intention

Goltz said he and his team are looking forward to preserving the historic building, which he described as “iconic.”

“The building is in great shape and there’s really cool architectural elements inside like marble floors, high ceilings and a safe,” Goltz said.

“It’s an important building in the neighborhood and we’ll do our best to preserve it,” the developer added.

Totally agree. Now if only the pizza gods, in their eternally cheesy mercy, found a way to rid us of this abomination on the corner of Western and Iowa in my hood. I would be forever in their debt. Makes me fume every time I pass it by.

All glory to cheezus crust!

Sure, that offends the gentry, but at least it has character....

Hell no! This lot is OK with me. Hopefully it outlives all of its used-car lot counterparts.
