  • hodeho Thirteen-year Brighton Park resident

    I lived in Rogers Park from 1980 to 2001. I will always remember my time there fondly. My two big favorites, on those rare occasions I had money to eat out, were Alberto's and the Pusan House. It's great to see that Alberto's is still going strong.

Why Is 95th Street Such A Tough Sell In Beverly?

Ald. Matthew O'Shea (19th) did just that last week, asking residents to support Halloween City at 2210 W. 95th St. in Beverly. The seasonal shop will occupy the former Borders bookstore, which has been vacant for almost four years.

Several well-established vendors occupy this same stretch of 95th Street, including Top Notch Beefburgers at 2116 W. 95th St. and Southtown Health Foods at 2100 W. 95th St.

Several well-established vendors occupy this same stretch of 95th Street, including Top Notch Beefburgers at 2116 W. 95th St. and Southtown Health Foods at 2100 W. 95th St.

Tampa-based DeBartolo Development LLC bought the mall at 9500 S. Western Ave. in March 2013. While several plans to transform the 765,961-square-foot indoor shopping center have been floated, nothing has materialized.

And yet the surrounding area continues to thrive. A shopping center anchored by Menards and Meijer opened in April at 9100 S. Western Ave., also in suburban Evergreen Park.

With anchor tenants established, the 91st Street mall is now developing outlots. O'Shea said he expects managers of those smaller storefronts to attempt to lure away established businesses on 95th Street, namely Panera Bread at 2314 W. 95th St.

Panera's lease expires in December. O'Shea said the bakery cafe along with the nearby Chipolte Mexican Grill at 2302 W. 95th Street could consider moving to take advantage of the additional parking in Evergreen Park.

To combat the parking problem, low-traffic businesses have been sought, such as Safeguard Self Storage. The Atlanta-based company plans to take over a former bookstore at 1909 W. 95th St. that has been vacant for nearly a decade. Demolition begins in March.

Nearby residents initially weren't thrilled with the 78,000-square-foot storage facility, but they quickly warmed up to the idea after managers met several demands, including funding a cul-de-sac at 95th Street and Winchester Avenue, O'Shea said.

The vacant shopping center in the 1800 block of West 95th Street would benefit from a similar owner willing to demolish and rebuild, Ross said.

But not all of the old buildings need to come down. Optimo Fine Hats bought the former firehouse at 1700 W. 95th St. a year ago. The high-end hatmaker is converting the building into a manufacturing facility and headquarters. It's expected to open this fall.

The former library at 95th Street and Hamilton Avenue has also been empty for five years. The stone structure remains attractive, but vacancy has taken a toll.

Not far away, Brocks for Men, a longtime men's formalwear store at 2025 W 95th St., closed last week after the owner retired. But the store manager plans to open a similar store above the realty management offices of C.N. Russo & Co. Inc. at 2141 W. 95th St., Ross said.

Beverly Farmers Market

With all the beautiful parks and spaces in Beverly, Morgan Park, I wonder why the organizer(s) chose a commuter parking lot on 95th st to host the farmers market?

Do you think a change in venue would boost attendance, therefore bring in more vendors?

    An important factor not adequately considered by those who would advocate simply moving the market to some other day of the week besides Sunday is that probably all of the vendors doing business at the Beverly FM are already committed to other FM locations in the Chicagoland area on differing and diverging days of the week, and the rest of the time I imagine they are all kept pretty busy being working farmers who have farms to run and crops and/or animals to raise. Small farmers are engaged in a difficult, seven day a week occupation. We are fortunate to have them come to our community under any work schedule or set of conditions that works out to be best for them.

  • Anne Beverly resident and cyclist

    Many of the vendors DO sell at markets in other parts of the city on other days of the week. Yes, we are fortunate to have them at our market.

Borders on 95th

It's sad to see such a new, large building on a prominent location sitting empty. I remember visiting a few years ago and it being very busy. I assume it closed when borders shut nearly all of its locations down (if not all of them?).

Have there been any rumors of something ever taking its place?

  • I was out near there yesterday and saw a sign for Halloween something? I guess they are going to use it for Halloween items. Same thing was done to the electronics store that closed in ford city prior to everest college opening in that spot.
