Borders on 95th

It's sad to see such a new, large building on a prominent location sitting empty. I remember visiting a few years ago and it being very busy. I assume it closed when borders shut nearly all of its locations down (if not all of them?).

Have there been any rumors of something ever taking its place?

  • I was out near there yesterday and saw a sign for Halloween something? I guess they are going to use it for Halloween items. Same thing was done to the electronics store that closed in ford city prior to everest college opening in that spot.

Hey all, I'm new to beverly - and the beverly everyblock. Let's talk about something other than meijers, menards, and mean employees. What's your favorite thing about the area?

Could be somewhere to eat, a park, a house, a feeling, or even a grocery store :)

    We've been residents of the 'hood for about 18 months now and couldn't be happier. I love the variety of old houses and landscaping in the area. . . in an age where cookie cutter housing is so prevalent it's just wonderful to be able to walk around Beverly and see such wide variety.

    Top Notch (95th and Hoyne-ish) has fantastic burgers, hand-cut fries, and you can't beat the Oreo shake. Across the street from there is Fantano's Subs (at the corner of 95th and Leavitt) which is really good. . . oh, and Jimmy Jam's (on 95th and Longwood-ish) has AMAZING sweet potato pie! They serve it at Horse Thief Hollow for dessert if you don't get over to the store. :-) Bookies at 103rd and Western is a great place, as is Cakewalk Chicago at 99th and Prospect-ish.

    If you get a chance, check out the library at 95th and Damen, which was recently built. The Arts Center is a good place for a variety of creative endeavors and there are several local theatre groups (Beverly Theatre Guild, Monroe Park Theatre Guild, Beverly Hills University Club, Stray Dog Theatre. . . )

The East and Westbound Beverly Nightmare

Why is it that the City of Chicago Department of Transportation can't seem to communicate with one another? Is there some kind of contest to see how many east and westbound streets in Beverly can be ripped up at the same time? First, it was the multi-phased infrastructure improvement project on 95th street that seems to be taking A LOT longer than anyone ever anticipated. Last sighting still had steel plates spanning sections of roadway from Leavitt to Wood.

Why is it that the City of Chicago Department of Transportation can't seem to communicate with one another? Is there some kind of contest to see how many east and westbound streets in Beverly can be ripped up at the same time? First, it was the multi-phased infrastructure improvement project on 95th street that seems to be taking A LOT longer than anyone ever anticipated. Last sighting still had steel plates spanning sections of roadway from Leavitt to Wood.

Follow that up with the infrastructure improvement work on 103rd street from Western to Beverly Avenue resulting in daily closures (presumably through the end of July), diverting traffic to 99th and 111th. And if the going wasn’t tough enough already, on Monday, infrastructure work began on 99th street. Yup, the very street people were diverted to use as a detour to 103rd street, now bringing that thoroughfare to a crawl. What a brilliant move! Let’s dig up another east/west artery and put more stress on a roadway that's already in dire need of repair.

Why not just go for the Grand Slam and start making improvements on 111th. No…just kidding!

The businesses along 95th and 103rd along with the residents who travel these thoroughfares have suffered enough already with the poorly planned timing and prolonged execution of these projects.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for seeing the city make the much needed—and probably long overdue—infrastructure improvements. Just why did it have to happen at all at once?

  • Paul Active resident

    I have to say I was pretty blown away when the suggested detours also had construction and closures. I think 99th has destroyed the suspension on my last 2 vehicles. Don't forget they also chose this summer to replace the railroad crossings at 103rd and Sacramento and the Rock Island line at 111th.

    We all know there are only two seasons in Chicago. Winter and Construction.

  • The other problem is that the DOT didn't use their own crew to execute these projects. If they did, projects like 95th street would have been completed long ago. Instead, i'm guessing that the city bid these projects out to independent contractors—probably suburban-based that were most likely the lowest bidder—and...

    The other problem is that the DOT didn't use their own crew to execute these projects. If they did, projects like 95th street would have been completed long ago. Instead, i'm guessing that the city bid these projects out to independent contractors—probably suburban-based that were most likely the lowest bidder—and the brain trust in the DOT office didn't include any incentives for finishing the job early. One would hope that the folks in our 19th Ward office would take more interest in pushing these project through and keeping the residents and businesses of the 19th Ward more informed on their start and completion dates. Any takers out there if you're reading?

    I bet if Mayor Rahm lived around here, these projects would have been completed at supersonic speed. Instead, we get the "Southside Shuffle"—which consists of inching traffic cones, detour signs and construction equipment from one block to the next.

    Let's hope that all these infrastructure projects are wrapped up and all the streets are repaved before the snow begins to fly or it's going to make for one interesting pothole season this winter.
