    Lincoln Square Sears Spared Demolition; Reuse Proposed As Housing, Retail
    LINCOLN SQUARE - Developers are planning a mixed-use reuse of the Lawrence Avenue Sears store, retaining the facade of the 90-year-old building while gutting the interior to accommodate 40 housing units and ground-floor retail. A proposal obtained from the 47th Ward office shows that West Loop-based Springbank Real Estate Group, which specializes in transit-oriented developments, has designs on the Sears building at 1900 W.

  • watch they do this and charge $1800 for a studio or $2400 for a 1br like they have done is the rest of the city and it jacks up rents around the area, no thanks.

  • Why would anyone want to keep the exterior facade of that building? It's a bland looking building at best with little if any architectural significance. Just because it's old doesn't mean it's necessary.

    Would have loved to have seen this space turned into an indoor public market similar to Pike's Market in Seattle. Could have offered nice small retail opportunity to local growers, artisanal food makers, start-up craft brewers, local artists, etc. Would have further differentiated Lincoln Square from the rest of the city and bring more people to the area.

    Dovetail Brewery's tour serves up a potent look at the art of making craft beer
    A water tasting on a brewery tour would usually seem beside the point-the point, of course, being to drink beer. But when you've already got a lager in one hand and a hefeweizen is on its way, drinking a little water doesn't sound so bad.
