What was strange about the configuration? And what about it didn't fit the neighborhood?

I am not trying to have these questions sound contentious, but I fail to see what was wrong with that project. Putting up some over-scaled, brick-veneered condo garbage seems about the only other likely use for this site, or, if it's to be a Dominick's, it would likely be another unacceptable abomination like the one on Division near Cabrini. This was a thoroughly urban design with a no-pretense contemporary look. What's not to like?

Jewel to close, replace store near Wrigley Field
By Samantha Sleevi, June 05, 2009


...Jewel, owned by Minnesota-based Supervalu Inc., plans to close its 21,875-square-foot store at 3630 N. Southport Ave. on June 26, according to a spokeswoman. Demolition is to begin in early August, with the opening of the new store scheduled for fall 2010.

...The new store will be about 50,000 square feet and include a mezzanine level with liquor and photo departments, according to the spokeswoman. There also will be 132 spaces of underground parking.

^ Great news, but does this mean that the Jewel is downsizing its footprint? I'm just curious whether this will open up land for more development

^ Nevermind. The answer is in the article--21,000 sf to 50,000 sf.

Ugh! That's my Jewel! This Jewel definalty needs to be upgraded, it far to small for the neighborhood it services. Still sucks that I'll have to walk to Whole Foods for the next 12 months.

Out in Bartlett when our Jewel expanded they kept the old store going and built the new Jewel right behind it, then demolished the old one and made that the new parking lot. But I don't know the site constraints for this if that's even possible.

Currently it's a vacant lot, somewhat used for parking at the hospital.

^ Yeah, that doesn't even looks like it will take up the full lot. They have a good amount of space for expansion.

This Chicago Journal article includes a .pdf of DV Urban Realty's properties, including a 50 unit building at 3013 N Waterloo.

I don't know what palm trees you've seen before, but this is what I think of when I see "palm tree":

True, but I see palm trees because of the style of leaves, not the size of the trunk. Here's both types, outside the Ritz in Naples:


Potato...potah-toe...

When Jewel reno'd its Plaza del Lago store, they ran shuttle buses to another Jewel for the seniors who live nearby. Of course, that could just be North Shore pampering.

Waterloo is less than a block long - 646 West from 3000 N (Wellington) to 3026 N. I live about a block from this site and am not exactly sure where it is going. My guess would be the back of the former Domnicks site.

Ah, I'm only familiar with the LA style tall palm tree.

Anyone have any details on a new proposed planned development on Diversey, East of Sheridan site that houses Yakzies, Far East and the parking lot? I saw a poor quality picture of two buildings - 50 units in 114ft and maybe ~60 units in 150some ft. Both with parking...called Parkway Point.

Any positive news on the proposed Dominicks on Broadway between Barry & Wellington? Will it *EVER* get built?

Wrigley hotel done shrinking
BY FRAN SPIELMAN


Developers of a hotel, retail and residential complex across the street from Wrigley Field are apparently done compromising with area residents concerned about game-day congestion.

...The five-story triangle building promised to Wrigleyville residents in exchange for a bleacher expansion was supposed to house a 400-space garage, upscale restaurants, retail stores and rooftop garden and below-ground batting cages, pitching mounds and player workout facilities.

The $100 million building has since been redesigned to include more retail and office space at the expense of parking, with a stadium club replacing the rooftop garden. A smaller garage could be built on less-valuable land away from Wrigley.

---
The new triangle building sounds exciting now that they seem to have eliminated a substantial (all?) amount of parking.
