CTA's Building Demo Plans Catch Lake View By Surprise

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.”

  • Jen K 22-year Lakeview resident

    I don't ride the El, because it's not particularly convenient, but one of the things that drives me crazy about the CTA is that there doesn't seem to be a true long-term plan for how the infrastructure will grow and develop. (I'm referring to a plan that spans decades.) I seem to remember that one of the buildings that will need to be purchased/demolished is a 7-year-old condominium (maybe at Wilton & School). Ridiculous to think that CTA hadn't thought of this before construction began on that property...

  • I think this is great! Yes, it disrupts and relocates the people in 16 buildings, maybe 100 people -- but in return, 150,000 people will get a better, smoother, commute, EVERY DAY.

“This whole package . . . doesn’t really pass the sniff test,’’ said Steve Johnson, 38, resident of a 14-unit condo building at 3252 N. Wilton targeted for possible demolition. “We’re going to fight this and I’m going to win. I’m not leaving because of this.’’

On the other side of the block, Ellen Hughes, 64, of 3239 N. Wilton, said her building is expected to survive — but with reduced property values and amid a dust bowl of construction.

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

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.

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.
