A renter in the 3200 block of North Wilton Avenue along the tracks received a letter, the paper said.

At Beer on Clark, a bar at 3415 N. Clark St., also received a letter on Thursday. Owner Ryan Findlay told the Tribune he thought it would take five or six years before demolition to get underway, but that neighborhood businesses wouldn’t go down without a fight.”

    I'm personally for the plan, though I know it's an unpopular opinion. It absolutely is a bad situation for the businesses and buildings they want to demolish, I agree. But this isn't a situation where the city just wants to build some commercial monstrosity. This is about improving the red line, which is a vital part of north side public transportation. As ridership continues to increase, there is a greater need to increase service, which means the constant delays caused by the purple and brown lines converging between Addison and Belmont needs to be addressed. This is easily the slowest portion of the north side red line, and it's only going to get worse as the years march on. The improvements will need to be done eventually, imho.

  • Littleton Arts Uptown Chicago/Uptown/Artist

    The plan would make all three lines Red, Purple, and Brown run faster. But I will wait and see which buildings they are really talking about.

CTA Would Redevelop Wilton Ave. with Transit-Oriented Projects after Bypass

A community meeting about the Belmont Station flyover is scheduled from 5:30-7:30 p.m. May 22 at the Town Hall District Police Station, 850 W. Addison St.

This article has 3 other Chicago locations (Show)

One possible development would go on undeveloped land currently owned by the CTA on Wilton Avenue, just east of the tracks. Other buildings would go on land on Wilton that still needs to be acquired by the CTA to first construct the south end of the bypass, at the corner of Wilton and School.

Neighbors on the east side of the 3200 block of North Wilton have complained that their homes would decline in value once the bypass is complete.

Conceptual renderings showed a four-story building with a rooftop deck on the west side of Wilton and Belmont, a block that currently houses a parking lot and has long gone undeveloped as the CTA awaited progress on the bypass project.
