Looking for Condo Associations that work with Wesley Realty

Our building is managed by Welsey Realty. One of their vendors, VanDerBosch recently recommended $6,000 worth of work on a catch basis that had been abandoned. Luckily, something felt fishy to me so I demanded a 2nd opinion from a plumber outside of Wesley's vendor list. The 2nd plumber determined the pipe wasn't in use and didn't need the work. The plumber also told me that developers typically abandon the catch basins when the gut rehab buildings.

The plumber also told me that developers typically abandon the catch basins when the gut rehab buildings.

In one of our board meetings, Nic our Wesley association management rep said that Wesley worked with VanderDerBosch to fix 6 - 7 catch basins a year. If you live in a gut rehab managed by Wesley and had your catch basin replaced, please make sure the line is in use or if not, you should go after Wesley and VanDerBosh for the cost paid!! Please also message me as I'm trying to find other condo owners who have had similar problems.

Hit & Run

I was involved in a hit and run at Racine/Cortland/Clybourn on Saturday night at 10:15pm. Two teenage girls in a grey/blue minivan (Chrysler, maybe?). They couldn't have been over 17 and were white, skinny, long brown/blonde hair. There must be damage to their front right bumper side of their vehicle - maybe red paint marks from my car.

If anyone has any information I would appreciate it!

  • Neighborly1~ Values community.

    I'm sorry this happened to you. I hope you can find them. I agree that talking to local businesses could help.

  • they might have been driving under the influence (under age) and didn't want to get caught. awful! glad you weren't hurt...right?

Laundry by the pound

Where's the best place to go that offers wash and fold by the pound laundry services? My friend in Bridgeport is somehow only paying $0.80/lb. I used to use the Dryv app. They do a great job, but recently raised their rates to $1.75 for first 10 lbs, and $1.50/lb after that, which is just too much for me. Any recommendations?

  • MrsGreeney Neighbor

    Coachlight laundromat at Broadway and Cornelia is $1.00/lb and they do a great job -- We've used them multiple times and even with a load that was over 60lbs it was done within 24hrs -- The wash and fold drop-off is located in the far back of the laundromat. They're super nice, too!

  • Freefall Lincoln Park Resident

    Thanks! $1/lb sounds great

  • Drive-By Laundry is $1.40/lb delivered to your home. Even cheaper if you sign up for a plan.. They deliver to a huge swath of Chicago

Loud neighbors issue

I live on the 3rd floor of condo in Lincoln park. The building next door has renters. Every Friday and Saturday, the 3rd floor renters have parties that start at 11:30p.m. They blast their music so loudly that I can feel the vibrations throughout my body. We cannot sit on our deck or sleep b/c the music is so loud. We call the police, along with other neighbors on the street. Even though the police come, they continue to do this every weekend. We and many neighbors are officially fed up. Does anyone know what else can be done? We don't know the name of the landlord since no units are for rent.

  • I believe multi unit buildings --rental and condo -- are required to have management info posted on the building. The other suggestions are solid but you could try reporting this to the city to see if you can get contact info for the building owner where your problem renters live. Back when I lived in a self-managed condo, we got cited for lack of contact info signage as part of a city inspection. I am sorry and feel your pain.

  • Thanks all! I am glad to know others have experienced this problem and feel confident after reading your comments and advice that I don't have to live like this and that they can get evicted.

Etno village grill

Does anyone know when Etno is going to re-open? I'm hungry. I haven't seen any progress in their renovations in a few months.

  • ehk

    A few months ago there was a stop work order (huge sticker/poster) stuck to the side door (old coffee house front door). Something about work being done was not in original scope/permit. It was scraped off about a day later, but I haven't seen much progress!
