Belmont Harbor: A small town in a big city

I know the market conditions aren't favorable right now, but it would be a missed opportunity if they developed this as a standalone 1 story supermarket.
Finally, good leadership.

..What Belmont Harbor needs most is a new supermarket on Broadway to replace the one lost to fire in June 2005, said 44th Ward Ald. Tom Tunney. The supermarket's redevelopment has been hampered by the struggling economy, but "we hope to have a resolution in the next few months," Tunney said.

I've never heard this neighborhood referred to as Belmont Harbor. I always considered it Lakeview or East Lakeview.

I'm familiar with the Belmont Harbor moniker, though I tend to refer to that area as Lakeview or Boystown.

New Lake View boom?
May 26, 2010
DAVID ROEDER


It's a plan that seems from another time, like during the real estate boom. A developer is navigating the neighborhood political waters in Lake View to get approval for two new buildings on Diversey that would bring more than 100 homes to the congested area.

G Corp. Development, which has built small- to mid-scale buildings on the North Side, has proposed a two-phase project for 508 W. Diversey. Covering most of a city block, it calls for two residential towers built over a common two-story commercial base. The first one would would reach a height of 12 stories, or about 150 feet, and the second would be nine stories.

Came across these renderings which might be of the newer version sans residential component.





It's basically another North Avenue Collection.

^ Perhaps, but I would love to see that go up on that site. That particular site could really use a development like this.

...that is so generic and awful... even for a shopping center. Luckily we get everyone's favorite tennants together in one development, Bank of America and CVS... just what Lakeview needs!

Regarding this lawsuit: http://www.scribd.com/doc/33451644/B...n-Construction

The way I read it, the condo was built with a surface parking lot instead of a parking garage.

The Department of Planning (or whatever it was called when the building application was approved) approved and permitted a parking garage and not a surface lot.

Also, the garbage bin area was not enclosed as approved and permitted. Also, the building was built longer than approved and permitted.

Additionally, the surface parking garage is causing fumes and noise to permeate the plaintiff's building.

Rocks Lakeview

Rocks is also expanding into the former nail salon next door on Broadway Ave...construction is underway.

Anyone have any updates on the Dominick's site at Bway and Wellington? I heard from the alderman's office that an announcement was expected relatively soon.

I also heard that the vacant storefront on the SE corner of Bway & Stradford is to become a steakhouse... any info?

There was activity there a few months ago till the site got slapped with a stop work notice due to no building permits. Haven't seen anything going on there since.
