Aldi Proposal

They changed the unit count down to 101 units and added more retail space and changed the footprint. This project is huge and can change that strip of milwaukee. Thoughts from anyone at the bucktown community meeting tonight?

  • Grand is getting a Tower, Division has a Tower, Damen is getting a Tower, California is getting a Tower, Logan is getting a Tower and on and on up Milwaukee Ave all the way to Jefferson there are proposed high rises with limited parking.

    The reason for living close to the Blue Line is about to disappear.

  • Michael Bucktown Resident

    Another great comment, JeannyB: "if you rent a car for whatever reason you'll still need a parking spot."

  • Not happy to see Kmart go.Kmart toiletries are so much more economical than Jewel and Cvs.
