Having lived for several years near Malden and Sunnyside I always thought that lot could use development......the desire to provide affordable rental units is commendable.....however if the the blog on that link is accurate if this thing is 100% low income I would not want to see it built.........highrise lowincome doesn't work......high rise mixed income might work .....prob would

^Yea, I was really hoping for that Target to come there. I use to live in Lincoln Square and the closest big retail store was that K-Mart on Elston. That community desperately needs development. They could still build a 89,999 sf Target but the law could change again and make it 80,000 or even 70,000. I hope the city gets it shit straight and get rid of that stupid law. This project started with Movie Theaters and all sorts of stuff and now it seems like there is nothing left.

^ And are they rallying up against it in usual NIMBY fashion or are they actually okay with it?

Better hope the "living wage" ordinance is vetoed, or else we may never see this project happen

^ I really like the design of that Target. And that Aldi looks great too--I'm starting to like this urban designed big-box thing.

Has that Aldi been built yet?

^ No, plans were originally for a Target, with movie theatres and parking above. The apt building is supposed to be in a separate structure

OK I guess you are right but this is from an earlier post, I guess technically the land along Wilson was not originally part of the CTA yard, if my memory serves. Nevertheless there still seems to be two apt building in the mix if not techincally wilson yards

The formality of a city council approval is the next step for the controversial $113-million Wilson Yards redevelopment project, which will bring a Target store and 12-screen movie theater to the Uptown community's gateway at 4400 N. Broadway. The city council's zoning committee was the latest to endorse the project, which already received a favorable recommendation from the plan commission as well as a $26.5-million tax increment financing package from the c community development commission.

The sticking point to developer Peter Holsten's 702,000-sf project has been a pair of 10-story multifamily buildings along Montrose Avenue. One building will have 71 units at affordable rents for lower-income households while the other building will be a 70-unit senior-housing tower. The community has been polarized by the issue, as opponents argue whether there is too much or too little affordable housing in a gentrifying community.

TUP this is also form the Holsten website concenring Wilson Yards so according to them the developers it does in fact include two apt buildings


http://www.holstenchicago.com/buildi...wilsonyard.htm
All financing and approvals for the Wilson Yard project are in place. Once the new Aldi store is occupied at year end, we will demolish the old Aldi. We will attempt to disassemble the terra cotta façade of the Azusa building later this year. Construction start for the balance of the site should start early in 2007. Included is the Target, more retail space the parking structure, the
Senior building, and the affordable apartment building

^ I know, but from your original statement, you seemed surprised that the apt buildings weren't in the rendering, as if they were somehow 'above' or attached to the Target. All I was saying is that they will be in separate buildings, which are not depicted in the rendering.

A specific task for a leasing rep

Daniel Duggan

Tuesday October 10 2006

Brokers set out to fill 6,500 square feet in a building under renovation in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood.

After getting some feedback from the neighboring retail tenants, local officials and residents, it seems the best use is an entertainment venue.

Specifically, people in the community asked for a gay/lesbian nightclub.

“It’s a great space, 6,500 square feet, 14-foot ceilings, it would be perfect for a restaurant, lounge or club,” says Anthony Campagni with Baum Realty. “And the neighbors think the end user should be a club that’s friendly to the gay community.”

Campagni says finding a qualified national tenant is not as challenging as this deal — searching for more of a neighborhood-oriented tenant.

But after looking at the area, Campagni says bars in the neighborhood of the space have also been gay-friendly.

“At least, the successful bars,” he says.

So how does a broker go about finding a gay nightclub as a tenant?

Campagni says they’ve started with local publications, looking for clubs that are interested in expanding or relocating. From there, it’s the long road of cold calls and meetings with owners.

“We’re hoping to appeal to the established club,” he says. “While it’s great to have someone in here as a pioneer to start up their own club, it’s always better to find a tenant with a little experience.”

Renovation of the building, at 4707 North Broadway, is expected to be completed by March 2007.

It has to be the Uptown Broadway Building that's across Broadway from the Borders bookstore. There's a picture of it in a post from August on this thread. It's definitely under renovation now and it's on the east side of the street, which means it would have an odd-numbered address like 4707. And the article in the post above mentions nightclubs as a possible tenant for the basement.
