Ten Years Later, Schwa is as Excellent as Ever

1466 N. Ashland Ave.

    Ten Years Later, Schwa is as Excellent as Ever
    In 2008, the food writer Alan Richman invited my wife and me to dine at Schwa. He was working on a story about the restaurant's enigmatic chef, Michael Carlson, and needed more opinions on the experience. I had never eaten at Schwa, but I knew all about the place.

    Walton No. 9 Ready For Launch
    Well, that was fast. The luxury condominium tower planned for 9 West Walton Street has gone from rumor to building permit in just five months, which must be some kind of record. That's even faster than River Point, which had the personal backing of Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

A fanciful environment at the new State & Chestnut apartments

State & Chestnut apartments, 845 N State St, River North

    A fanciful environment at the new State & Chestnut apartments
    The lobby at the new State & Chestnut apartment tower preps you for the fanciful environment you're about to enter. The playful, whimsical sensibility continues into the elevator lobby. Step off the elevator on the 7th floor, and the color palette becomes much more subdued, with only a splash of red to hint at what lies beyond.
