The Enormous New Whole Foods Sign In Lakeview Is A Whole Lotta Sign

LAKEVIEW — It is physically impossible to not know who's moved into 3201 N. Ashland Ave.

From almost any angle at the intersection of Lincoln, Ashland and Belmont avenues, a gigantic sign hangs on a glass-paned facade. In renderings, it was a dark forest green. In reality, it's a snowy white against the blue-green glass.

Whole Foods said it measures 35 feet wide by 25 feet tall, and store design and brand coordinator Christine Sturch confirmed that it is the largest Whole Foods sign in Chicago (inheriting the honor from the city's largest store at 1550 N. Kingsbury St.).

The city's second-largest Whole Foods opens at 3201 N. Ashland Ave. at 9 a.m. Wednesday after 16 months of construction and a promise that the new grocery store would revitalize the corner of Ashland, Lincoln and Belmont avenues.

A wall mural behind the coffee bar, for example, pays tribute to Rose Records, which used to occupy the building where Whole Foods first opened in Lakeview, 3300 N. Ashland Ave., one block north of the new store.

Whole Foods now has 11 stores in Chicago, plus 14 in the surrounding suburbs. Lakeview's other store is at 3640 N. Halsted St. in Boystown.

Lakeview Rape Suspect Fled Kansas After Alleged Armed Rape There

Police said a 24-year old victim was leaving a garage in the 3700 block of North Fremont Street around 8:20 p.m. March 9 when Henigan walked up with a handgun, sexually assaulted the woman, robbed her and forced her into the truck of her car.

The attack came less than two weeks after a 25-year-old woman was raped and robbed in her car in the 1200 block of West Barry Avenue shortly after midnight Feb. 28. In that case, police said, an armed man robbed the woman before forcing her into her car at gunpoint and raping her.

He then drove to several spots on the South Side — trying to withdraw money from ATMs, police said — and at 9:55 p.m. hit a tree in the 1150 block of South Throop Street. He got out of the car and ran away; the woman was able to escape from the trunk and call police.

    Labor contracts only last for an agreed up period of time - and are then open for negotiation again.

    The CTU may have agreed to increased pension in lieu of a raise for one contract period but that doesn't last forever. The labor contract between the CTU and the CPS includes what is agreed to for that contract and that contract period only. No more and no less.

    Like any negotiations, reach and agreement or suffer the consequences.

  • So other than the accurate info on cakepops, if you are going to argue about why my property taxes are soaring now I would recommend you not forget about the other huge broke pensions in our beloved city.

    Arrest made in Lakeview carjacking
    CHICAGO, Ill. -- Chicago Police have made an arrest in the carjacking and assault of a woman in Lakeview earlier this month. The 24 year old victim was in the back yard of an apartment building in the 3700 block of North Fremont when the attacker forced her in to the trunk of her own car and drove off.

  • I hope she presses charges. Though doing so will probably put her through a lot more mental anguish, so it might be a lot to ask of her.

  • He has an arrest warrant from Kansas, so they'll probably ship him back there first.
