Avondale Development News

Here are some developments of Avondale (or should I say "West Roscoe Village". I think the eastern part of Avondale will flourish within the next ten years (the eastern part of Avondale is Diversey to the South, the river to the east, addison to the north and the Kennedy to the West). It makes sense, I mean when your are bordered by the Irving Park neighborhood, Logan Square, North Center, Lake View, and Lincoln Park, makes this neighborhood almost an island around developed neighborhoods.

Looks like there is going to be more development in Avondale. Midway Games whose headquarters are in Avondale between California and the River has sold its buildings to a Residential Developer. This should be big, first its on the river and second Midwest Games takes up a lot of land there.

^ Lets just hope that the legendary NIMBY's that infest every neighborhood like rats don't form a swarm and eat away all hope for that chunk of land

Fortunately NIMBYS are not that common in Avondale.

I really don't care... what did it replace? If you've ever been to the blog "Queens Crap", you'd thank god for the architectural quality that we're seeing in new buildings in the neighborhoods. Just be grateful that these buildings don't have air conditioners sticking out of the facade in completely random places (referred to as "Fedders buildings").
