Lots of new things near Bloomingdale and Milwaukee!

Does anyone know when the pizza place is opening just south of Bloomingdale? Landscaping is complete...

Building across the street is almost done being gutted. What's going in there?

Across from there I hear northwestern is putting in a specialty medical center where the blue line vacant lot is. Down the street the hotel is going in and a new retail and apartment complex.

    It's a little more than the name when you are comparing medical care!

    Yes, I agree, there are quantitative and qualitative ways to compare medical facilities to discern good ones from better ones. That's not the point I'm raising about this specific case. Northwestern Medical is deciding to enter an already well-served neighborhood. Why?

    Yes, I agree, there are quantitative and qualitative ways to compare medical facilities to discern good ones from better ones. That's not the point I'm raising about this specific case. Northwestern Medical is deciding to enter an already well-served neighborhood. Why?

    I would argue that they are targeting an affluent neighborhood with relatively price-insensitive consumers that use brand as a proxy for quality. This sounds like a formula for commercial success. I applaud a good business decision.

    As a neighborhood resident, however, I see St. Marys and St. Elizabeths within a mile, Norweigan American within 2, Rush and the entire Illinois medical district within 3. Yikes, do we have choice! So, just like Tom whose preference would be to see Aldis replaced by Whole Foods, my preference would be for something other than a medical facility on that site.

Purse stores?

Does anyone know of any good purse stores? For some reason I'm really picky about purses and can't ever find any I like. There was a store on North and Leavitt that had some cute ones but they closed.

  • I second Stitch! They are always getting in new styles and will order what you want if they don't have it.

  • Jen

    Awesome! I love my old bag and haven't been able to find it anywhere. Maybe they can order it
