Whole Foods to open store in Hyde Park
By Sandra Guy


Whole Foods Market will open its first Chicago store south of Roosevelt Road on the ground floor of a 150-unit condo tower slated to replace the Village Center shopping mall at 51st and Lake Park Avenue. The store will open in summer 2014 and employ 125 full- and part-time workers.

The 30,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market will have up to 188 free underground parking spaces and will include décor reflecting the Hyde Park neighborhood, large fresh-food and bulk-good sections, a sit-down bar and pouring station serving beer and wine, and a cooking classroom with tips on eating fresh and healthy foods, said Michael Bashaw, president of Whole Foods’ Midwest region.

...The Original Pancake House, another long-term tenant at the Village Center, is expected to become a part of the new development, the property owner said. The pancake restaurant now occupies about 3,000 square feet and attracts long lines of customers on Sunday mornings.

The development will include 10,000 square feet of space for small, locally owned retail.

University announces plans to build second child care center
By Sara Olkon June 17, 2011


The University of Chicago, which announced plans last year for a child care center near the Medical Center, will build a second child care center on Stony Island Avenue, Provost Thomas F. Rosenbaum announced.

Child Care East, as the new center has been informally dubbed, will provide care for 124 children, ages six weeks to five years old. It is scheduled to open in September 2013, on University-owned land immediately south of the Laboratory Schools’ Earl Shapiro Hall on the Early Childhood Campus, which is now under construction.

...The University has selected Wheeler Kearns Architects to design the building.

More future development

According to the Herald, the University is about to issue a RFQ for developing the McMobil lots on 53rd into retail + housing. I'm expecting a midrise out of this.

Second, the University is also planning to buy the vacant Borders on 53rd and lease it, possibly to more than one retailer. Hopefully it complements the Harper Court redevelopment.

I have no idea is anyone has every mentioned this before...so sorry if it has already been mentioned.

I was looking at an apartment highrise at 6430 S Stony Island called the Island Terrace Apartments in Woodlawn. I was checking out its Emporis page and Emporis said there was a proposed 34 story building next to it at 6400 S Stony Island. Here's the Emporis page about the proposed building: http://www.emporis.com/application/?...ng=3&id=289543

I didn't see any other information about the building when I ran a quick search. I assume it's been around awhile and probably won't happen. Does anyone know anything about it? Have I been embarrassingly in the dark about this one?
