The proposal from Three Corners Development, called the "Concord at Sheridan," includes constructing a seven-story building in the 6400 block of North Sheridan Road in Rogers Park with 111 apartment units, underground parking and 6,200 square feet of leasable retail space.

The development is slated for a plot of land just north of the Caroline Hedger Apartments at 6418 N. Sheridan Road that is now a parking lot and community center used by the seniors.

    Plan For Rogers Park Target, Apartments On Sheridan Road Advances
    ROGERS PARK - The city's Plan Commission approved a controversial proposal from developers to build a seven-story development and Target store on land owned by the Chicago Housing Authority Thursday afternoon. Ald. Joe Moore (49th) said he was pleased to see public housing being built on the North Side - and praised the public-private development as an "innovative" way to stretch scarce dollars earmarked for public housing.

  • I was kinda curious who is Caroline Hedger...no Wikipedia page on her yet but found this, wonder if its the same woman...seems like it.

    https://www.researchgate.net/publication/263755545_The_physician_of_Packingtown_The_life_and_impact_of_Dr_Caroline_Hedger

    "The aim of this paper is to illustrate the instrumental role of physician Caroline Hedger during the first half of the twentieth century, with her emphasis on worker health, which influenced American society and helped to improve working and living conditions of people across the USA. Design/methodology/approach – Drawing on archival newspaper clippings, original journal articles and books written by the subject, historical manuscripts and other labor history resources, this manuscript pulls together information on this topic in a unique way to give a broad view of the impact of Hedger and her important role not only for the city of Chicago, but the nation as a whole. Findings – This research concludes that Hedger was an instrumental force and tireless advocate for the improvement of public health and social change. She was a constant driver for the creation of better living and working conditions of poor laborers, especially immigrants and women, desired the enhancement of child welfare, and was also helpful in supporting the labor movement and educating those involved in the process. Originality/value – This is the first manuscript to explore the role played by Caroline Hedger in relation to her impact on the importance of the health of workers and their families. Her story is a testament to the powerful effect of a single person in a dynamic world, and demonstrates how understanding a worker's health contributes to greater insights about management history.

  • This plan looks fantastic!

  • A.S Living and Playing in Chicago

    Looks neat. I have seen concerns in other neighborhoods that bringing more affordable housing can spike up crime? Hopefully it won't happen in this situation.

  • The seniors who live at Caroline Hedger, many of whom are retired, don't seem to get involved in gang activity, drive by shootings, drug dealing, robberies or spray painting their CHA tags on building walls and garage doors in the neighborhood. In fact I can't remember the last time that the police conducted a sting operation inside the Caroline Hedger Apartments. Maybe it was all hush hush and never hit the newspapers.

  • It's a myth that subsidized housing brings crime. That conception is a hold-over from an era of crime-ridden public housing (the "projects" era) that no longer exists.

    The reason people continue to associate subsidized housing with crime is because so many "nice" neighborhoods and landlords refuse to allow vouchers, so voucher holders end up forced into areas that already have higher crime levels. But the criminality in those areas is not caused by the voucher holders, who tend to be employed people, have had to undergo a stringent approval process (only 1/3 end up qualifying), and have little incentive to risk losing their subsidies by engaging in crime.

    But in this age when every form of public benefit and government program is coming under attack, unscrupulous people are only too willing to villify voucher holders as criminals.

    Affordable housing in nice neighborhoods, ruin those neighborhoods. It's true, we all know it, but some don't like it when the fact is mentioned.

  • Rob

    "but some don't like it when the f̶a̶c̶t completely made up to support my political beliefs notion is mentioned."

    FTFY, Pedro

    I suggest that readers of this thread ignore Omar's comments. The claims the account makes are unsubstantiated.

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    Rob, how does any neighborhood benefit with a big "affordable housing" building?
    Thanks.

  • Rob

    Pedro - you stated that it is a fact that affordable housing ruins nice neighborhoods. Why can't you cite any actual data to support your ridiculous notion?

  • Mad About RP Enduring the hatred from the left in RP

    Of course it does. And drives property values down. I don't need to cite sources, I know it from personal experience.

    None of your business. Your stalking efforts won't be tolerated

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    LOL, Rob, can't you answer?
    Let me state it again:
    You have a nice neighborhood and then some politician decides to bring a huge affordable housing building. How is this beneficial to the neighborhood. Thanks.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Mad answers a question posed by Rob to Pedro. Did somebody get his accounts mixed up again?

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    Helen, Mad can answer any questions or do whatever he wants.
    Or maybe he needs to ask for your permission first?

  • Rob

    LOL Pedro, can't you read your original statement? You said it was a fact that affordable housing ruins nice neighborhoods. Neither you (or MARP) can cite any example of this happening. Once either one of you can come up with an example of that happening, I will discuss the benefits with you.

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    Very facile answer. It's obvious you're unable to come up with any benefits.
    This makes me glad and proves my point.
    Point proven.

  • Victory declared!

  • Rob

    Sorry Pedro, that's not how it works. You made a statement you can not provide any actual fact to back up. My unwillingness to argue a different statement that you didn't make does not prove your statement true, no matter how much Trumpy derp type logic you try to apply. Come on back when you get some facts and try again.

  • Michael Archangel Comey confirmed that Trump is a liar!

    @Rob - That is pretty typical for Pedrito, he makes a statement and then conveniently pivots in the hope that you will take the bait on his new premise and forget his previous comment. You are correct to continue to ask for support of his claim, "Affordable housing in nice neighborhoods, ruin those neighborhoods..." despite his desire to switch the focus.

  • Michael Archangel Comey confirmed that Trump is a liar!

    @Helen NoH - I saw the same thing Helen! This reply from Mad About RP, "...I don't need to cite sources, I know it from personal experience..." clearly suggests that Mad was answering in first person for a question posed to Pedro. Had Mad been answering in third person it should have read, "... He doesn't need to cite sources, He knows it from personal experience..."

    So, you are correct Helen...someone lost track of what account from which they were working.

  • They both have said that James Cappleman was "cool" which is sort of a tell.

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    You guys are making false accusations in hopes that some moderator bans me and Mad.
    I didn't know that real grassroots opposition to alderman Joe Moore bothers you guys so much.
    Oh, well.

  • Why don't we all try to face the real elephant in the room here: after its bizarre, vertiginous rise last year, Trumpian "logic" is now completely and officially dead.

  • #MSAGA

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    That's what you want to believe, Omar. Are you still watching CNN and MSNBC?
    The ones that lied to you and told you that Hillary had a 98% chance?
    LOL

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    On the local front, we will get Joe Moore out of office.
    RP needs a good alderman.

  • Michael Archangel Comey confirmed that Trump is a liar!

    @Pedro Garciano - What false accusations are being made? We are simply reporting what is clear to everyone if they read the thread.

    Nice try to pivot away again and, yes, I did report this!

  • Mad About RP Enduring the hatred from the left in RP

    Pedro, don't waste your time. Their arguments amount to "circle talk".

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    You're looking for any excuse to ban those who you can't defeat with arguments.
    Mad was answering for himself.
    Don't hold your breath, I'll remain here telling you what you don't want to hear.

  • Michael Archangel Comey confirmed that Trump is a liar!

    @Pedro Garciano/Mad About RP - Keep trying to convince us but it is clear that Mad was writing in first person about something you wrote.

    No need to comment any more on this incident.

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    He was answering for himself.
    As I said before, don't hold your breath. I'll be here.
    Watch.

  • I just find it highly amusing to see how the Trumpian trollery has been reduced to such a sad and toothless state at this point. I guess it's a little hard to feel inspired when your guy in the White House is failing so spectacularly--even his supporters realize this even though they won't admit it.

    @Pdro Garciano - Are your repeated references to the November elections your way of defeating someone with arguments? It seems whenever you need an out, you go back to that! Omar asked a question, which you sidestepped...again! Maybe Mad will answer for you?

    @Pedro Garciano - Your last comment relates to the topic of this thread how?

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    You started getting off topic with false acussations, Michael Archangel.
    My proof? Look at your comments above.
    We were talking about how there are no benefits for a neighborhood when an affordable housing building is constructed.

  • Michael Archangel Comey confirmed that Trump is a liar!

    @Pedro Garciano - What false accusation did I make? Please point it out.

    I stated that Mad wrote in first person about something you wrote. That is completely true. I also wrote that you have a track history of making statements and then changing the topic to avoid a direct response. This is also true.

    So, you have now claimed that I have made false accusations twice but offer no proof to support your claim!

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    I'm not Mad.
    Mad is not me.
    You say "Yes they are".
    False accusation.

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    And, as I said before, it's all done in hopes that some moderator bans your opposition. This happens not only here but all over the internet.

  • Michael Archangel Comey confirmed that Trump is a liar!

    @Pedro Garciano - I did not say you were one in the same. I pointed out the obvious context of the statements that were made and I reported what seems suspicious to me.

    So, no false accusation, unlike your false accusation. Shall we continue?

    @Pedro Garciano - You missed the point...I did not have to say anything. Mad said it for me!

    I love it when I sink your battleship! Enjoy that beer!

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    Michael, you pretty much get upset at anyone who doesn't love what the alderman does. You battleship gets sunk every day, buddy.

  • Pedro Garciano Trump keeps winning! #winning

    One more thing.
    I'm a young man, the younger generations (after the "millenials") are more conservative than ever before.
    The flower power movement from the 60s has failed.

  • Michael Archangel Comey confirmed that Trump is a liar!

    @Pedro Garciano - I thought you were off having a beer and reliving the only high point in the current presidency?

    You pretty much accuse me of being a Moore partisan when that is not even close to true. Fact is I am neutral about Moore. I would not mind seeing a new candidate take him on...it would be good for everyone to have another set of opinions.

    The problem is, there are a few who are quick to jump on Moore with some wildly unfounded accusations and conclusions. As Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said, "You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts.”

    You, my friend, want to peddle your own facts which makes me wonder for whom you are shilling!
