Piehole has great newyork style pizza.
I know that they had certain nights that someone in drag

I will miss their Roscoe street location.
Was a cool place to grab pizza and have a beer.
But the broadway location should be okay too.

Yeah. I guess.
Its just more of a california type development that we arent used to.
The parking lot might add more to the congestion.
But atleast its on the second floor and tucked away.
IMHO I like these type developments,
I have been wondering why we dont have more like this.
Much better than the old malls that are so all over
the place in chicago like the ugly Toysrus complex
near belmont and western and the equally horrendous
surface mall on ashland just south of belmont.

It gives us back public space and hides the parking lot.

Wong, are all your posts all supposed to be in poetic verse or haiku? I feel like I'm reading William Carlos Williams:

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

From Tribune:
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/c...,7133213.story

What will come of the vacant structure? Senior living is what I saw reported...odd location? no?

They don't know what to do with the old Police station?

This MUST be converted to a museum for the Chicago Police Dept.:

1. Expo of the building itself
2. Teach the kids and grown ups about the Police force and show them around
3. Lease the place out for movie filming
4. Historic Archive and museum of Chicago legendary crime stories (Including Al Capone etc.)

The last bullet is the most important... we are known around the world for our crime stories might as well make some money off of it. This would bring even more tourism to the North side and the Wrigley area... The new Hotel down the street should fund it.

Jewel-Osco is Back in Business on Southport
By Patty Wetli Thursday, October 21, 2010


...Here’s the scoop: For starters, the new store is bigger. Way bigger. At 62,000 square feet—including roughly 17,000 devoted to a second-floor wine and spirits shop—this Jewel could eat its former self and still have room left for dessert. Yet the super-sized building, at 3630 N. Southport, has the same footprint as its smaller predecessor—the expansion was largely made possible by moving parking from street level to underground, where there’s room for 125 cars.

1200 units, 1/3 public housing

CHA makes recommendation on Lathrop Homes, enters negotiations with five-component development team


...The development team, comprised of Related Midwest, Heartland Housing, Bickerdike Redevelopment Corp., Magellan Development Group and Ardmore Associates, is charged with leading a planning process and ultimately the multi-year, multi-phase redevelopment to create a sustainable mixed income community on the current Lathrop site in west Lakeview at Diversey and Clybourrn.

One of the primary goals for the development is attaining Gold or Platinum level certification from the United States Green Building Council for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND)

As envisioned, the redeveloped site will be a model urban community, offering housing that is affordable to families across a broad income spectrum – along with schools, parks, community space and accessible retail – all within close proximity.

I like the 4th idea too. And there's already a tour bus that visits many areas of Chicago with history of the mobs within the city, they could attribute to a crime and police museum if it would happen.

Looks like the Recycled Paper Greetings building on Broadway will be saved as retail space. Not sure about the adjoining building though.


And I came across this senior housing proposal next to the old police station on Halsted. Not sure how serious it is but I do remember talk of converting the station into senior housing, so maybe this is part of that.

He is talking about the adjoining building to the south of the Walgreens. The Beaux Arts annex structure

Better than being torn down I suppose... but not exactly the highest use for the structure. Shame because it has such a beautiful facade and HUGE interior bays, you could program anything into that building.

My last apartment in Chicago was one block away from this building. I walked by it every day on my way to the L. I was always curious what it looked like inside and whether it could potentially be turned into lofts. Even though the lofts won't be happening, I'm glad to see it's being saved.

Apparently the Dominick's site on Broadway was auctioned and sold to a new owner a few months ago. The owners still want to build a new supermarket there (possibly a Dominick's again).

^ Well, there is a golden opportunity to get this done right, I hope the city sees it. Another store set back with a large parking lot will stick it to Broadway for at least another generation...

I moved to the area shortly after the Dominick's burned down. Was the original store set back or right up against the sidewalk?
