Community meeting on 1400 E. Hyde Park talks plans and parking

Developers talked about the plans of the newest building to be built at 1400 E. Hyde Park Blvd. during the first of many community meetings last night at Kenwood Academy High School, 5015 S. Blackstone Ave.

The proposed four-story building will sits on the corner of Dorchester Avenue and Hyde Park Boulevard and will feature 19 luxury condo units.

Christopher Dillion, the president of Campbell Coyle Real Estate, the developer of the project, said that because of his experience with Harper Court, 5235 S. Harper Ct., and the upcoming boutique hotel on 53rd Street, early conversations with the community like these are important.

  • Becke Davis Hyde Park resident, Chicago native

    Bixler was a very popular park for toddlers. Now they have installed all kinds of play equipment for age 5 and older. Where are the toddlers supposed to play now? VERY frustrated about this - we used to take our grandkids, ages 3 and 1, to Bixler all the time.
