    Home Is Where the Former Church (or Firehouse) Is
    Published today at 12:16 p.m. Developers have never shied away from turning the remnants of Chicago's past into residences-see the omnipresent warehouse-turned-loft projects across the city. Conversion treatments are now being found where they are less expected: A former Jewish orphanage in Wicker Park is now a single-family home.

    At one place I lived, a small church was converted to a SFH. Beautiful inside, and with parking! I would love to live in a former church; it would be (I hope) a fabulous place to live because of all the good "vibe".

    It's never too late to try something new, right? Well, that's the premise behind the gamut of adult education classes available around the city. And that's why we've rounded up a list of some of our favorite places to try new things around Chicago.

  • Try Big City Swing for fun on a "first Friday" each month. East/West Coast Swing are among my personal dances and the music is terrific. It's a fun evening and people are friendly. Go alone or take a friend. And, you'll see some terrific dancers who "jive" like they're from the 1940's-50's. I just grin and watch them (no jive anymore for me with cartilage worn out!)

    good.......I'll remember that.

    Love the whole "Artists Against Hate" thing. Are these the same artists who berated Pence in front of his wife and children during the Hamilton show in November? Anyway, this is a good list of businesses who I will avoid the next 4 years.

Upcoming Gold Coast rental tower shows off its amenities with new website, renderings

...Sinclair apartment development is steadily approaching its 35-story final height at the corner of Clark and Division in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. While tenant move-in is still many months away...

...SCB for developer Fifield Cos., the $200 million project replaces a rundown Jewel supermarket at 1210 N. Clark Street with a new and expanded 55,000-square-foot flagship store, a new parking garage...

    Upcoming Gold Coast rental tower previewed in new renderings
    While tenant move-in at 'The Sinclar' is still many months away, marketing efforts for the new 35 story rental tower are moving into high gear. Here's a peek at what renters can expect.

  • I love these artist's renderings of the Sinclair that either ignore the current view of the Mark Twain Hotel building across the street or, better yet, depict that block as an empty space which would of course be a dream come true.
