Looking for wood shop space to rent..

Hi, three friends and I are looking for a wood shop space to rent in the Wicker Park, Bucktown, Logan Square neighborhood. Ideally we'd hope to have the space to ourselves and pay monthly rent. If you know of anyone with a vacant garage/building that wouldn't mind the noise and sawdust please let me know! Note, we would be providing all our own tools so we're basically just needing an empty room with electricity.

Thanks!

Logan Pets out of business

I just received this email today about Logan Pets going out of business. I am so upset and disappointed. The owners are wonderful people and this was a rare location where my 13 year old dog loved to be groomed.

  • This may just be a case of the landlord not realizing what having a pet realted business in their building means. It can be a lot of wear and tear on a storefront. All of that may have caused a lot of bad blood between the landlord and logans pets. Who knows what really happened.

  • Susan S. resident

    Unfortunately there are a lot of tenant who don't pay their rent, don't leave when a lease is up, etc. 13 in 14 years doesn't seem like a lot for someone who owns a number of buildings that include residential tenants.

2 DOGS FOUND!

Found two very sweet dogs in an alley off of McLean Ave. near Kedzie Blvd. on Saturday night around 8pm. One is a female Rottweiler and other is a small mix breed male. They're the best of friends so they must live together. They had no tags and no chips. If these are your dogs or if you know the owner, please contact me!!

  • The reunion went well, owner was very happy to see them and the dogs were also excited. It sounds like this isn't the first time the dogs have gotten out, he said something about how 'usually they find their way back home.' :(

    I did get them tags, he was grateful because he's currently unemployed. May have sounded a little crazy, but I told him to keep my number in case he ever doesn't want or can't take care of the doggies bc I'd take them!

  • you did a really good thing for the dogs and the man. We need more like you!

I wanted to introduce myself to the community and share some observations with my fellow neighbors. I live by the Addison and Pulaski intersection (I believe that's Avondale area?), I live with my partner and his family. I had moved from Albany Park, where I was a witness to a shooting, and coincidentally I also witnessed the shooting by Addison and Pulaski last month (talk about wrong place at the wrong time).
Before I moved in with my partner he assured me that his neighborhood, or at least his block was safe. However, I'm starting to notice that, that might not be the case soon. For one I have noticed increased tagging on buildings on Pulaski, more specifically the old Frame building they are currently remodeling, the black door next to Windy Cindy Market, and many more.
More recently, this past Sunday (January 18), while driving back home we scared off two guys on our block. One ran off into the yard of a house and the other tried to casually walk away. When we drive back around they had already met up again and were walking south on Karlov by Eddy.
I have also seen an increase hit on my RSS feed for crimes in my area, around Belmont and Kevin, and that is really starting to concern me.
I would love to get to know my neighbors a lot better and see if we can come up with a way to ensure our neighborhood doesn't get any worse. I am open to any idea; meeting up, flyers, whatever it takes.
Anyway, that is it for now, hope y'all have a great Friday.

  • Get to know the people on your block, across the alley and up the street. don't be afraid to call the alderman (Reboyras) or the police if you see or hear something hinky. Walking distance from the blue line, 2 Metra stops, Smoque, Berrista, Sabatinos, the neighborhood is a hidden gem.

  • I live by Addison and Pulaski, but I venture regularly into the Avondale area. I was just pointing out that this increased crime activity is terrible in any neighborhood, but it's proximity especially concerns me.
    Thank you guys for the other suggestions, I will definitely be looking into the CAPS meetings in my neighborhood and I will see if I can plan something with my neighbors.

spark energy update?

The other day, caught off guard, I allowed myself to switch to Spark Energy due to the persistence of two door to door salesmen. Looking at past threads on this topic, it seems lots of folks have had bad experiences, and some folks have seen reduced savings and feel it is a legit company with bad solicitation tactics.

Was I scammed? I feel like a goof for ignoring my gut. Thanks!

  • Joe

    I have saved with first energy for electricity and direct energy on gas (except Dec, Peoples would have been cheaper) Peoples gas charge changes every month. Lots of threads on this.

  • Like kittyhop says, read the receipt they gave you - you have maybe a week from the signing date during which you can cancel. Not sure of the exact time limit; it IS short. But if you do some quick research you can decide whether Spark is worth it for a year.

Question about front yard fences

My neighbor is putting up a fence to close off the courtyard of their building. Where he is putting the fence will completely block the side of my porch and if I need porch repairs or gutter repairs, the fence will make it hard to get to. The fence is on his property line but I want to know if it is legal for him to put a fence up literally 6 inches from my porch and blocking it off.

Kids stealing packages

Around 3:35 I saw a group of kids running north on the 2400 block of Spaulding Ave (about halfway between Fullerton and Altgeld). They ran up the stairs of a porch across the street from me, grabbed some packages that were on the stoop, and ran away down an alley. I couldn't tell if they had taken anything from more than one house.

I called 311, but was told I couldn't report it because I wasn't the victim. I'll let my neighbors know, but I just wanted to let people in the area know to be on the lookout and watch out for their packages. The kids were male and probably early to mid teens .

  • Aaron Logan Square

    Chad, the likely answer is yes. There was another post on here before xmas from someone around 1900 N Albany that had them on camera. A day later I went to Julia de Burgos park and found several empty amazon boxes that were discarded there. All of this has been reported to the police and I encourage anyone else experiencing this problem to report it as well.

Just got a ticket in violation of code 0964100G STOP SIGN OR TRAFFIC SIGNAL which, after further research, is for parking too close to a stop sign. Apparently the code states you have to be 30 FEET from a stop sign or traffic signal, however, I can't actually find the code. I plan on attempting to contest it. This just seems like some BS way of creating revenue, especially when there are no signs posted or markings on the curb and there are and have been several cars parked just as close to the stop sign or in the same exact spot for years, and I've never seen a car ticketed ONCE. I'm mad. Anyone have any suggestions for anything I can do to be productive? Otherwise, I will just stew in my anger and out $60. This was at the stop sign at Spaulding and Schubert, near the blue line.

  • Piper - I've gotten a ticket in the exact spot you mention. I have seen other cars ticketed there since, but the enforcement is very irregular so you will see people parked there basically 24/7. I never intentionally park illegally but it's a very confusing area since the stop sign...

    Piper - I've gotten a ticket in the exact spot you mention. I have seen other cars ticketed there since, but the enforcement is very irregular so you will see people parked there basically 24/7. I never intentionally park illegally but it's a very confusing area since the stop sign is not very near the corner or the crosswalk.

    I've even asked a parking enforcement person who was writing tickets what areas are legal in that dead end and what are not. She told me that parallel to the curb was ok, except near the stop sign, corner, and fire hydrant. She also said that the "head in" spots were legal "about half-way" (?!?) across the dead end but this is apparently subjective because my husband just received a ticket when parked there. Grrrrr. Actually he received two within 24 hours -- we appealed both by mail & got the duplicate dismissed, at least.

    Also, as a head's up, I've gotten a ticket parallel parked on the north side of that dead end for parking in the wrong direction when pointed toward Milwaukee. Apparently some others have too because now you will see cars parked in both directions on that side (nose to nose or tail to tail). I've been on this block for almost 8 years and never saw anyone parked pointed away from Milwaukee until this year. (For those not familiar, the dead end is all of 3 cars long & has no room to turn around.) I can't even see how cars get in there that way without some illegal driving moves. I just avoid that whole area as much as possible, but as you know parking is sometimes tough to find.

    I'd gladly avoid parking illegally if I could only figure out what is legal. :( Who could I ask to get a definitive answer? I'd also be happy to pursue getting reasonable signage/paint if possible - I guess the alderman would be the starting point?

  • I know this is an old post, but I wanted to chime in that I contest every single ticket I or my husband get, most of which have been for this violation of parking too close to a stop sign. I would say they throw out 2 of 3. It is ALWAYS worth a shot, just don't forget to take and include photos in your contest!

Rent vs. ownership

I think one of the key issues is that these small businesses rent rather than own. Ideally, if a small business can own the property, it can avoid increase in rents, etc. I know, a pipe dream for many but if you can own your building it would seem much easier to run your business.

    Larry - It is true that companies that make it and stay in the same location for 25 years will probably have done better to buy than rent. But to generalize your experience is to allow survivor bias to creep in as you ignore the fact that very few businesses last 25 years and even fewer in the same location.

    Most fledgling companies would never be approved for a property loan without a personal guarantee. And even if they could, it still might not make sense. You may want to move, expand, contract, etc. Renting, while more expensive, provides this flexibility which is EXTREMELY valuable.

  • Carter O'Brien Chicagoan

    I think these are all good points, and it's valuable to hear a wide range of opinions on the subject. One nuance I haven't heard discussed per se is just how much customization does your business require, in terms of infrastructure build out. The owner of a law office may not feel a need to purchase the property as moving is relatively painless. A dentist may see it differently due to equipment requirements, a yoga studio owner who breaks his/her back to put in really nice hardwood flooring, etc.

    One of the most important things when having tuckpointing done on an old brick house is that the correct lime-based mortar be used, and not the contemporary kind using Portland cement. Plus the pointing should be recessed, not protruding or flush with the bricks. In old brick construction, both the bricks and mortar were porous, allowing for escape of moisture and expasion/contraction (kind of "breathing") with conditions. Contemporary (Portland cement based) mortar is higher strength and non-porous - so moisture can be retained and lead to cracking and peeling of the brick. And the recessing of the pointing is related to allowing the rain to drip off; I just can't remember the details.

First on Division and now in Logan Sq., just a guess that it's been successful--they seem like smart business owners and continually re-invest in their businesses to help them grow. So having watched them over the years, it seems a natural progression, not so much a major shift in concept.

We live on the 3100 block of Spaulding. A few weeks ago someone cut through the front gate during the day (small enough you wouldn't notice but large enough to stick a finger through to unlock it) and looks like they attempted to get in the front ground windows with some metal picks that were left in the windows. Today, around 630pm someone came through the front gate, the side gate, cracked the back patio door which was unlocked at the time (i think they realized someone was home since the dogs and my husband were there and the tv and lights were on) and went into the garage and ransacked the car but didn't take anything even though there was multiple items they could have taken. My husband realized quickly something was up so may have startled them but it looks like one person, most likely male judging by the footprints. My husband missed the person within minutes as the door light was still on in the car when he checked it. We typically have packages left which have been untouched but both of the times they came in were after we had recently been out of town without someone being home which is rare. We called the police but wanted to give everyone a headsup and make sure to lock all doors (garage, car, etc) and keep alarms on. The police believe they are watching the area given the timing both times and may be likely to hit other houses nearby.

The cops did say they would patrol more often but if anyone else notices anything suspicious and calls it in we may get more response. For what it's worth the footprints were very large- much bigger than my husband's. Just wanted to make sure everyone is aware as it's generally been a very quiet street. Thanks!

    Ameribuild's price came in way below everyone using materials the other's wanted to charge extra for. They completed it in less than two days and cleaned up very well. The one time I thought I had a problem they were out within a couple of hours. Fully insured and provided proof!

Need Recommendations

Hi there...I need a couple of recommendations: a plumber and an auto mechanic. I have a leak in my bathroom, so not a big job, but local is best. I am also looking for a mechanic to let me know how much longer I can keep my 14-year old beast running or if it is time to let her go because keeping her running would be too expensive. Any suggestions?

    Joe's on Elston, just west of Target. They kept my 12 year old car running when it probably should have been in the junkyard. They also offered me several budget options for repairs. When my muffler rusted out, the stock dual chrome replacement was very pricey. They suggested that I use a standard muffler and cut it down to fit the car. They saved me about $200 on that repair. They could just as easily have ripped me off. Good people at Joe's.

Man Arrested at Logan & Mozart

I was driving to work this morning at around 8:15a and ran in to 2 police cars at the inside corner of Logan Blvd & Mozart where they had blocked off the street & were arresting a man. Does anyone know what was going on or what happened?

New Banh Mi restaurant across the street from the Harding Tavern

Just walked past this new sign this morning (on the old Refresh Ease storefront). Very exciting!

  • Looks like the brand was formerly named Banh Mi and Co. Hoping that they are under new ownership and chef because their Roscoe location was just eh.

  • The one in Wicker Park is pretty bad- was excited because close to where I work, but it's bad. The one on Roscoe is really nice compared to that one. The Wicker Park location has a different set of owners and standards.
