Until someone answers the "who pays" and "how much" questions, this is all just fanciful pie-in-the-sky dreaming, no?

Cool picture. Is Catalpa that goofy multi-colored thing on Broadway?

Dominick’s buys motel next to store
By Andrew Schroedter, Feb. 10, 2009


Dominick's Finer Foods LLC paid $4 million for a motel property in Edgewater next to one of its stores, setting the stage for a possible redevelopment of a nearly three-acre site near the lakefront.

It's amazing how Edgewater alone, several miles north of the loop, can still ccompete with the skylines of other medium to large cities in the US.

Me too! It's brash and fun, unlike the "Clarovista" which is painful.

Dominick's - Foster and Sheridan

It will be a larger lifestyle store with a bank (US Bank?) and Starbucks. Most of the parking is on top of the building. I believe the parcel to the north (and also possibly to the east) will probably be sold, so hopefully we get some density there.

I don't quite understand why they need or want the motel property. The current site is 95,000 sf, which seems like plenty if you're doing rooftop parking. Maybe it has to do with the loading docks needing to be off Foster rather than Sheridan.

Also, it looks like Aldi is going to open a store in the Clarovista. Kinda disappointing since I'm not a fan, but it is better than a large empty space.

Why not a fan of Aldi? They often have some amazing hard goods bargains.

Partly because I was expecting either Staples or Trader Joe's, both of which were mentioned by the developers several times. Also because the new Wilson Yard Aldi didn't turn out exactly as planned - no street entrance or windows on Broadway, just a blank brick wall with weird movie poster frame-like art/ads.

Where does uptown end and edgewater start? Bryn Mawr of Foster?

Also hows the beaches and lake front up there? I live by Irving Park and i like to run along the lake, but i have always ran south to North Avenue or downtown. Never north, guess ill have to wait for spring.

Abandoned Edgewater Hospital is a sick site
DAVID ROEDER July 14, 2010


Edgewater Hospital at 5700 N. Ashland, empty and decrepit, is a grand-scale monument to fraud. Unfortunately, it's a monument that's become a blight for its surroundings.

...The property covers most of a block. Residents said there has been talk of putting 300 housing units on the property, with some buildings in the nine- to 13-story range. Some neighbors, organized as the West Edgewater Area Residents, are holding out for all or most of the site to become a park, expensive as that would be.

Bryn Mawr is definitely too far north to represent the southern boundary of Edgewater. I'm not sure what the official dividing line between the two neighborhoods is, but I've always considered Foster to be the dividing line.

Regarding the lakefront further north, I've only ever run along the path from Lawrence southward (though usually no further north than Montrose). I'm not sure whether the running/biking path further north has the side gravel paths that are much less harsh on the knees & ankles than harder surfaces like concrete/asphalt (I'd like to see them added between Addison & Irving Park similar to the way they were added between Addison & Belmont a couple years ago). As far as beaches, Hollywood Beach, at the northern end of Lincoln Park (where Lake Shore Drive ends), is a popular gay beach. Montrose Beach looked pretty popular for beach volleyball the few times I've been there on a warm summer day (though certainly no where near the level of North Avenue Beach) and overall it seems very popular with Hispanic families, though it's reasonably mixed (plenty of families spend the day there having picnics, fishing, or hanging out on the beach). I don't have much experience with the Foster beachfront.

The southern dividing line between uptown and edgewater
is indeed foster.

And the northern dividing line between rogers park and edgewater
is ofcourse devon.

The two story yellow brick building at clark and glenlake
had the roof cut off and has steel girders protruding skyward.
Looks like a couple more stories are being added on.

Not a very common project. Will be interesting to see how it turns out.
That stretch of clark is looking better of late.
The kitty moon building is looking sharp and another couple commercial buildings have been fixed up around there.
