    Shoegaze authorities Slowdive release their first record of new material in 22 years

    Tobin Sprout's lo-fi pop majesty rides again
    What defined the classic era of Guided by Voices-the stretch from 1990 to '96 when the lo-fi indie rock kings produced their undisputed best work-was the push and pull between the band's figurehead, Robert Pollard, and its guitarist and co-front man, Tobin Sprout.

Step Aside, Southport — There's A New Up-And-Coming Corridor In Lakeview

Steps apart, restaurants offered Thai, Italian, Mexican, sushi, Indian and once-trendy crepes, living up to the "Restaurant Row" nickname granted to the 3900 block of North Sheridan Road.

At 3928 N. Sheridan Road, Loukas Development is replacing a trust-owned retail and apartment building with a transit-oriented development.

It won't be the first venture into the neighborhood for Loukas Development, which in the aughts replaced the former Mode Theatre, 3920 N. Sheridan Road, with a mixed-use development now home to physical therapy and insurance offices.

Diagonal from the Loukas development, the Lakeview Ace Hardware site is set for redevelopment at 3911-21 N. Sheridan Road.

The city's planning commission approved plans for a seven-story, transit-oriented development at 3921 N. Sheridan Road in February. [Twitter/Chicago Planning Commission]

Around the corner, prominent North Side developer David Gassman is replacing the "decrepit" single-story building at 927-31 W. Irving Park Road after buying the former Thai restaurant in early 2016.

One more lot sits primed for development: 3949 N. Sheridan Road, where the aging former Tropico Lounge was demolished at the end of last year. The lot is currently up for grabs for a cool $1.3 million.

After securing Martino's support, locals began to toss around name ideas for their corridor. Simply using Sheridan could be confusing, with North Sheridan Road winding all the way to Rogers Park and also branching into West Sheridan Road and North Sheffield Avenue at Byron Street.

Gassman is also in the midst of redeveloping the Ettleson "eagles building" at Broadway and Sheridan a few blocks east of the Sheridan Station Corridor.

    Step Aside, Southport - There's A New Up-And-Coming Corridor In Lakeview
    LAKEVIEW - There was a time when getting off the Sheridan "L" station meant access to what felt like every cuisine in Chicago. Steps apart, restaurants offered Thai, Italian, Mexican, sushi, Indian and once-trendy crepes, living up to the "Restaurant Row" nickname granted to the 3900 block of North Sheridan Road.
