and that which did front the road was the side of it.
Kindof like the Jewel at Division and Clark.

Really ugly and dumb. Just like the Dominicks was
like at Foster and Sheridan as well.

Dominick's faced a parking lot to its south. The Broadway frontage had other shops along the sidewalk (a bank?), with a gap for the driveway access.

FIVE GUYS

Five Guys will open its doors in the heart of Boystown at 3219 N. Broadway. Ironically, it'll be next to a L.A. Boxing gym and across the street from Lakeview Athletic Club. Looks like this may be one of the first guilt-free Five Guys to open. What better way to justify scarfing down a bacon cheeseburger with a side of cajun fries?

I had heard from the Alderman Tunney's office that the Roundy's group was interested

Lakeview ready to see its future tonight, including a 'low line' beneath the Brown Line tracks

March 15, 2011

You've undoubtedly heard of the High Line, the Manhattan public space built atop a dormant elevated line.

Well, Chicago is thinking about a low line, a pedestrian path that would be built beneath the CTA's Brown Line elevated tracks between Southport and Paulina Avenues. It would have native landscaping and would aim to connect the Southport and Lincoln Avenue business districts.

The low line is among the ideas that will be floated tonight as the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce and Special Service Area 27 unveil the Lakeview Area Master Plan, LAMP for short, in a meeting from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Among the other ideas: Making the long-dreary intersection at Lincoln, Belmont and Ashland Avenues more inviting to pedestrians with wider sidewalks and temporary street closures for public events.

Here's a preview of the plan from the Roscoe View Journal. The designers are Moss architects. One big question: How does the plan propose to pay for its ideas?

Lakeview Chamber and SSA 27 to Reveal LAMP
Friday, March 11, 2011
By Stacy Jeziorowski

.........Continued Community Involvement

SSA 27 and the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce are going to need your help.

“At the reveal, everyone who is coming in will be getting a volunteer card with different things that they can choose to volunteer for,” said Santos. “We’re also going to be putting a volunteer mechanism on thisislakeview.com website because we definitely need lots of volunteers.”

“I also think the fact that we can get people from the community to volunteer further solidifies the project,” she continued. “It will make them feel more part of the community as well.”

For those unable to make it to the review, LAMP updates will be available on the www.thisislakeview.com website. Santos explained that the associations will continue to utilize the same means they used to obtain ideas to inform the community throughout the implementation process.

Wrigleyville development

The retail/hotel/apartment development Addison Park on Clark will transform the corner of Clark and Addison, if it ever gets built.
By Rod O’Connor


“Nobody is going to tell me that’s a great building,” says architect John Lahey, gesturing toward the dilapidated four-story structure above the Salt and Pepper Diner at 3537 North Clark Street. The president of Solomon Cordwell Buenz is making the case for his firm’s design for Addison Park on Clark, the controversial hotel, apartment and retail development planned for the southeast corner of Clark and Addison, across the street from Wrigley Field. When the wrecking ball arrives, which doesn’t appear to be happening any time soon, it will raze this building and at least a half-dozen others. We cross over to Addison Street, where Lahey points out more industrial edifices separated by vacant parking lots. “I remember coming here as a kid in the ’60s when it was a beat-up ballpark in a beat-up neighborhood. And the best thing about it was you could get seats anytime you wanted.”

^ Banks sure are keeping their pursestrings tight, aren't they? I can't imagine a development like that being unsuccessful financially.

Most banks are juuuuuust starting to think about lending money on commercial developments, and at that, they are only giving out 60% loan to value.

I think any development you're seeing out there that's not out of pocket is likely to be foreign money in some respect.

Lahey is great... no BS, tells it how he sees it.

For his part, Lahey, the architect, is confused by criticism from some local businesses and residents that his design is somehow “suburbanizing” the neighborhood. “What’s suburban about a building that has retail, that defines the street wall and has high-density residential next to an urban-transit stop? That’s about as un-suburban as you can get,” he says.
I think "suburbanizing" needs to be replaced with "sterilizing". What this project does is remove the intricacies of the existing neighborhood and replace them with a continuous, homogenous design for a block and a half south along clark street. Walking that street now, every storefront/bar/restaurant has taken their own, independent design liberties within their space... a brand new development with standardized lease spaces is not going to allow for that to happen... at least not for a few decades perhaps.

Sure, they'll have the ability to put up their own awning and signage, but will a establishment like salt and pepper be able to build out a retro streamliner diner facade? No. Will a theatre even be able to lease here? let along paint their building blue? Hell No. Will Goose Island be able to house their enormous beer vats? Will the Red Ivy be able to adorn their facade with huge corten steel panels? Nope.

I applaud SCB and the Developers for trying to add depth and complexities into the design... as well and reacting to the height of Wrigley and a setup for the upper portion of the project... but as much as they try they will never be able to create the sense of individuality that the neighborhood currently has, wants or needs... the scale won't allow it.

But on the other hand, that stretch of Addison between Clark and Sheffield is a disaster this would be an astounding upgrade.

St. Joseph Hospital expansion
Sheridan and Surf



This project has been around for so long that I can't quite remember what the previous design looked like. It seems less glassy now, though.

Politically connected developer gets title to Lakeview site
By: Eddie Baeb May 04, 2011


...Mr. Davis' DV Urban Realty Partners was the mezzanine lender three years ago for a failed project to build a new Dominick's and a condominium building on the site at 3030 N. Broadway St. Now, in a deal that closed in late March, a venture of DV Urban has taken title to the property, arranging a short-term $6.5-million loan from a Chinese lender, Wanxiang America Real Estate Group LLC, property records show.

...DV Urban is in talks with two grocers about a store there, according to Maureen Martino, executive director of the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce.

...Ms. Martino also says she thinks the developers will propose some type of residential development, either apartments or condos.
---

Probably Mariano's and Dominick's.

And residential above the grocery store or does this site also include the property on Waterloo where condos were also proposed?

Better than demo. Maybe one day it will be programmed to truly live up to its potential.
