The CTA also announced Tuesday that it is exploring moving the historic Vautravers building, at 947-949 W. Newport Ave., some 29 feet to the west to be out of the way of the proposed track location.

    The numbers you're throwing out there are yours alone. The concept seems to be a bit too complex for you Mike. Have a nice day though.

  • You provided the numbers! You have to have room for road traffic, then one El track above that for most trains, then one more above that for the crossing.

Lincoln Park and Lakeview apartment deals and finds, 5/13/15

Planned Property is offering a month’s free parking for all new leases at 515 W Barry, and a “dogs live free” deal at 2756 N Pine Grove. Dog fees, dog deposits and dog rent will be waived for a year.

BJB Properties has completely renovated studios starting at $865 a month at 3838 North Broadway. Furnished models are available for viewing.

  • Robert Rohdenburg Activist Citizen

    Michelle:The new SRO preservation ordinance is the response to the mass displacement, gut-rehabbing/conversion of the SRO's. The law, like the Affordable Requirements Ordinance, must still legally give developers like BJB & FLATS an op-out option, to pay a fee into a trust fund rather than provide actual affordable housing in their buildings. BJB, FLATS, and their allies fought against this SRO preservation ordinance but were overwhelmingly defeated in City Council.

  • So BJB on their own made it so you and others in the building did not have to pay rent for the rest of the time you lived there, up to 6 months. And while you were living there, they also had Catholic Charities help the residents find other housing...

    So BJB on their own made it so you and others in the building did not have to pay rent for the rest of the time you lived there, up to 6 months. And while you were living there, they also had Catholic Charities help the residents find other housing and helped them move, and gave them more money and you still think they are bad neighbors?

    I've never heard of any private building owner doing this when they are emptying out a building to do a gut rehab. Count yourself very lucky.

    Sandy - I'm (obviously) not running the show, but in the "old days" (when the market was previously in the Armory parking lot), they disallowed all "public" parking -except- for people involved with the market, to make room for staff and vendors. They posted a sign late in the week and even towed remaining cars very early Saturday morning. Yes, it was inconsiderate for the Chamber to not notify the entertainment, but they're probably running around like headless chickens without Paula. Call them to make sure you're on the list to not be towed.

    Thanks. Ally will look into the situation on Monday and get back to me. Perhaps there will be some sort of vendor permit I can display on my car--if not, it’s gonna be a problem. In my younger days, I could easily busk standing outdoors in the sun with just my guitar for a couple of hours, sans amplification. Back then, though, I had no CDs to sell and keep track of. But at 64, I need a little help being heard outdoors over all the noise (and the L so close); and I have to pay closer attention to sun protection (not a problem at festivals, since stages are shaded). I also play a lot more mt. dulcimer now, which requires I either have a stand on which to lay it flat or a chair so I can play it on my lap. It was perfect having the market around the corner from me (w. of B’way, effectively a block further from the L) with Patio’s lot for parking, a tree for shade, and an AC outlet three feet away. I could also safely lock my purse in my car, out of sight.

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    What next are they gonna try to prop that building up at the corner of Belmont/Halsted? A broomstick or that Frank Elliot guy?

    Maybe Sidetrack could buy it and open a real gay bar there.

    XXXL Jim's has a nice ring to it.
