New building on Broadway?

Anyone know what is being built next to the Broadway Antique shop?

  • These urgent care medical clinics are a feature of Obamacare, and they're opening up all over the country. They're designed to reduce patient flow and cost at hospital ERs. One of many aspects of the ACA that doesn't get much attention.

    What about next to Element Resale-there is some construction being done there?

Senior Fair

Mon, Mar 17, 2014 10am-1pm

Alderman Osterman's 14th annual Senior Fair will feature a variety of providers from social service and government agencies, as well as businesses serving older adults. The Fair will also feature gift bags, free refreshments and entertainment. The Fair is free and open to all. If questions, contact ginger@48thward.org.

  • Seriously, on a Monday...at that time? This seems to want to preclude those that depend on friends and family for transportation etc, those can't afford taxis or navigate public transit and those that provide home services for their elders. I've been waiting for something like this event to happen, but because I have to work during the day, we cannot make it. Thanks for trying tho, it would have been nice to find some sort of network to find support and options thru
    Be well
    David

  • What a great opportunity! I always appreciate the good folks who provide outreach into the community...so much easier than having to go to individual social service and government agencies.

  • It was very well attended and supported. I'd estimate about 400 seniors and 40 exhibitors.

Are you on Medicare/Medicaid and is a senior? Have you seen the new Seniors only doctors office located on 1541 W. Devon across from the hardware store? If not you need to, Oak Street Health is a very unique company taking on improving Older adults health by offering services that you won't find in many doctors offices. First they offer rides for seniors and as you can remember with all the crazy winter weather we had it was extremely difficult to get to your doctors appointments if you rely on the CTA to get around. Oak Street Health patients enjoyed being picked up and dropped off for their appointments. They also have a community room that all patients can come and enjoy anytime even if they just want to hangout and have coffee with friends. Plus they are able to enjoy many of the programs happening in the community room such as workouts, presentation on diabetes and other health related issues. I hope you really take a look at it if you or someone you know is a senior who is on Medicare.

  • Julie in Edgewater retired and curious

    Are they affiliated with a major hospital?

  • Swedish Covenant and Weiss Memorial Hospitals.

  • I like the idea of the community room. Because social isolation is a detriment to health, especially of seniors. Conversely, having support of community can help them (and everyone) survive a health crisis. This shows that this company is thinking about more than just the medical factors in the health of their patients.

    I apologize if my tone sounded rather cavalier--I am very lucky to be able to afford to indulge both my low-carb diet and foodie tastes. (As to organic produce, there are some fruits and a few veggies where organic vs. conventional doesn't matter--anything you peel, for instance, except tubers, is safe to eat if grown conventionally as long as you don't eat the peel). As to TP and paper towels, I usually get them either at Costco or via Peapod; I rarely buy animal-origin milk, for dietary reasons. (My husband & son don't like it anyway).

Police taped off area around Rosehill & Hermitage

I just went for a run and saw that police had taped off the alley behind an apartment complex at Rosehill and Hermitage. There were cops all over the place and I was wondering if anyone knew what happened.

    I am glad they had this option close to home but it seemed unorganized. I was surprised how short the length of time was for the under 3 group to look for eggs-and maybe make it later than this early.They should just do the egg hunt for all ages at once, why split it up? And there was no info that you have to register as they kept telling people. Why as taxpayers must we register?

    I loved they had the option to take pics with the bunny but only one door to let people in an out-there was an option to open another door so people can exit out-maybe next year have that option-it was a fire hazard for sure.

    I was told Loyola Park was an excellent option-I will remember for next year.

Lakeshore

What's going on via Lakeshore drive? It's closed off at the sheridan entrance.

  • I have contacted 311 thru the website that there is a lot of plastic bags and clothing dangling from the trees in this area. At least twice in the past month. As soon as I read the tribunes headline of suspicious items found and the location I guessed it was a homeless person. Glad it wasn't something deadly.

    Yea I remember we were driving and they had the entire place shut down.....lots of cops everywhere. LOL Crazy.

Building Condition Report Recommendations

Does anyone know of a good, affordable company or individual that can do a full evaluation of a building - e.g. evaluating the roof, electrical,heating, and water systems, and overall condition of the common areas (inside and outside) of the building - not individual units? We're a relatively small condo association and we'd like to have one done and am having a hard time finding one.

Does anyone know of a good, affordable company or individual that can do a full evaluation of a building - e.g. evaluating the roof, electrical,heating, and water systems, and overall condition of the common areas (inside and outside) of the building - not individual units? We're a relatively small condo association and we'd like to have one done and am having a hard time finding one. We've already looked on Yelp and contacted several places, either they dealt only with individual condo inspections, were not thorough enough, or didn't return phone calls. In the case of one of the most popular companies on Yelp's list, Domicile Consulting - they were very difficult to reach - by phone or through their website. Tried contacting them for months! When I finally got them, they promised to send a draft contract out and never did. Then when I tried calling them back to remind them, still never returned my calls. I would not say I'm difficult to deal with. At any rate, I would welcome any suggestions!

  • Ann - What is the purpose of the evaluation? The company/person that you seek to hire will probably vary depending on what you need. For example, do you need the building evaluated for real estate transaction purposes, fiscal planning or are there building condition issues that need to be addressed? Are you considering improving the building somehow - new windows, mechanical system, energy efficiency, etc.? Your answers will help determine the type of evaluation that is necessary and the correct professional for the evaluation.

  • Ann

    Good Questions Chad -
    We want do some proactive planning because we have an older building that is in need of repairs and we want to determine the best ways to make these repairs, get cost estimates, and create a timeline for the repairs need to be made. We want, as much as possible, to avoid being caught by surprise with a huge special assessment and/or the boiler breaking down in the middle of the winter, for example.

Affordable spaces for 100 guests in the Andersonville/Edgewater area?

I've seen this post before but wanted to see if anyone had any FRESH/NEW ideas of affordable spaces that would cater to a decent-sizes group to celebrate getting legally married! I wrote down every suggestion from past threads but wanted to reach out in case any of you have found another place we could consider. Thanks for your time!

  • One last update...we decided to go with Hamburger Mary's for their pricing, facilities that caters to a large number of guests, and all that comes along with it! I highly recommend working with them and their event planner, Shanna Behrend, has been a really positive experience. Thank you, everyone, for the wonderful suggestions!
