Public Hearing on Monday, March 9 for Rise and Galleria Liquors Mixed-Use Redevelopment

A public hearing has been scheduled for the proposed mixed-use transit oriented development for 3401-09 N. Southport Avenue on Monday, March 9 at 7:00 PM at Mystic Celt.

The following is now known:
A 4-story building with retail on the first floor
33 apartments with starting rent at $1,500
6 parking spaces with one being a handicapped spot

The project will be presented by the developer to all that attend the West Lakeview Neighbors meeting. See the renderings here:

http://southportcorridorchicago.blogspot.com/2015/01/public-hearing-march-9-2015-for.html

  • Tunney must be out his fcking mind to let 33 units go up in that tight corner location.. The zoning does NOT allow this. Go to the meeting in March and lets tell this moron alderman and his greedy developer insider NO WAY to this design & density. Transportation-transit orient development-zoning is a loophole for these idiot builders to construct over built garbage.

  • I hope that people will come out to the meeting. I have lived here for almost 25 years and I'm heartbroken about what is happening to Southport. We can't all just complain on social media sites -- I saw on one site that residents of Andersonville have successfully banded together...

    I hope that people will come out to the meeting. I have lived here for almost 25 years and I'm heartbroken about what is happening to Southport. We can't all just complain on social media sites -- I saw on one site that residents of Andersonville have successfully banded together and kept the chains from moving into their quaint neighborhood. We need to do the same -- we can't just assume that someone else will do it because no one will and a year from now we'll all just be complaining about another yoga wear store, chain store . . . If anyone knows how Andersonville was able to keep their neighborhood away from developers, I'd appreciate any thoughts. In the meantime, I just plead with residents of the Southport neighborhood to stand up for our street and stop this senseless development by attending the above meeting and any others. And send texts, emails, phone calls to Tunney's office that enough is enough.

New Restaurant?

I just walked by the Town Hall apartments on Halsted and Addison and noticed what appears to be a new restaurant getting ready to open up in one of the retail spots for that building. Does anyone know if this is actually a new restaurant and if so what the scoop on it is, or is it perhaps some facility that is there for the tenants of the building? It seems to look like to me it may be a restaurant because it also has bar seating and the decor of the place as well.

  • Gregory Morrow Employee at Center On Halsted

    Hi! That facility is part of the Center on Halsted's new Senior Center complex. That space will be used to serve senior lunches or for other senior events. The lunch program is administered as part of the City of Chicago's Golden Diner senior lunch program. The old police station itself will soon be open as part of the Senior Center, it's going to be very nice!

  • Gregory Morrow Employee at Center On Halsted

    Addenda: the Senior Lunch program at Town Hall is not just for building residents, it is for all neighborhood seniors 60 and up. There is another Senior Lunch served at the Presbyterian church down the street, at Addison and Broadway.

    Li,

    This is America! This is the land of free will. Where there is a will there is a way.

    I have a friend who came to Chicago for Dental School. He found an apartment for him and his wife within a quarter mile of Diversey, Clark, and Broadway. He volunteered to be the onsite building manager in exchange for free rent.

    I had a student from Albania who was married and with one kid. This young woman wanted her daughter to go to an excellent elementary school near downtown. They had very little money. After asking me how to determine the best public elementary schools, I then explained how to determine their enrollment boundaries.

    The bottom line: The husband looked for and found a job as building superintendent with free rent within the enrollment boundary for Ogden Elementary!

    And then there is the story of Kyle MacDonald. He started with a single small red paperclip and traded it for a house. He bartered his way from a single red paperclip to a house in a series of fourteen online trades over the course of a year. It’s a real story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_red_paperclip

    Where there is a will, there is a way.

    Zoom Zoom done!

    I'm just saying, everybody talks about "diversity" and how rich a city is with diversity, and as I walk around the near north side, I don't see it. It's turning into a city of high incomes. Classism.
    Manhattan NYC is equivalent to our downtown. The rents in Manhattan and now Brooklyn have gotten so high that the average working person can't afford it. So the average working person moves to the outter outter boroughs and eventually leave the state.
    Remember -- 75% of the folks working downtown commute. That should tell you something about the affordability of the city. If someone is willing to put up with Metra madness in the morning to get to&from work.
    Chicago isn't as bad as SanFran or NYC, but I would hate that it would become that way.
    I've had to move 3-4 times in the past 20 years always chasing "better" rents.

    Like those small mom& pop stores I guess.

  • Any news agencies such as yours conducting their own?

  • Noel Montenegro Photojournalist for NBC News

    I cant speak for the other stations. I dont think we are. We dont have access to the legal tools to find out what people are really concerned about. Mainly if the owner of the building is the owner and installer of the recording equipment. And if the owner of the building has anymore recording equipment in use in any illegal way. That would require warrants for search. Police have to do their due diligence and burn some good old fashion shoe leather.

Change Coming to 44th Ward?

...maybe, maybe not, it will be for the voters to decide. But for the first time in several election cycles there are challengers to the incumbent in next month's election for 44th Ward Alderman. Come learn about the candidates and ask questions next week:

1. Monday, January 19 at 7pm at the next Southport Neighbors Association meeting. It will be at the Mercury Theater.
http://www.southportneighbors.com/meeting.html

2. Wednesday, January 21 at 6pm at the Hawthorne Neighbors Meeting. It will be at the Annoyance Theater
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hawthorne-Neighbors/589776931051310

Here's a chance to find out where the candidates stand on issues important to the community and ask questions.

  • Robert Rohdenburg Affordable Housing Activist for ONE Northside

    A Google search of news stories on "Tunney" and "election" or "re-election" found no stories which mentioned him contemplating, thinking about, considering, or deciding on not running for re-election. Even if he though about it, I doubt that he would say it to a reporter. After Mayor Daley decided non-to run for re-election, their was story mention about a possible Tunney bid for election as Mayor of Chicago. If he had decided to run for mayor, he could campaign while still being 44th Ward Alderman.

  • Robert Rohdenburg Affordable Housing Activist for ONE Northside

    There is a possibility that the "The Alderman was not invited to the forum" was a cover story for being busy doing something else that his chief of staff did not want to specify, but the appropriate and acceptable answer then would have been "The Alderman had a prior commitment that he couldn't break or change."

Lately, I dread each snowfall because I know it means the return of the snowblowing fools in the 2800 block of N. Orchard. To give some background, snowblowing in this block typically occurs between the hours of 12am and 4am, so no, not even remotely a "normal" time to use a very loud machine. My guess is that it's a service used and they come at whatever time they feel like, then plow the entire dang block at these odd hours. It's not even the sidewalk, it's the garage areas behind the houses, so it usually takes a while. I'm a heavy sleeper, and it continually wakes me up and keeps me up because it goes on for an hour or more. Last night at 4:15am, I finally had it and called 311 and was transferred to 911. They sent a car out. I feel bad "wasting" our 19th district resources for something so trivial, but this is ridiculous! I'd like to believe that no normal person says "yes, 3am is an awesome time fire this puppy up to clean an inch of snow that my car is going to drive over!" Has anyone had similar experiences? Aside from wearing earplugs and filing noise complaints, any suggestions on how to handle?

    For example, if you are complaining about "X" - within one or two posts - you will get the very tiresome "if you don't like it Why don't YOU do something (instead of posting here!) ! it never fails there will always be one person who just has to insert that comment.
    The whole purpose of EB is to chew things over as neighbors, its our "back fence" - "did you hear this?" "Did you see that?" "What do you think about this?" not beat each other or up attack each other just for bringing a subject up. Why the hostility?

  • Why the hostility?

    My guess is that CHPO25 is the one running the snow blowers! : )

    But really, Becky G and Maksurak are correct. This is a good forum and I agree with you that we are discussing neighborhood things and there is no reason to get defensive or hostile.

    However, I am aware that some folks enjoy stirring the pot or playing devils' advocate. I guess it makes things interesting.

    re doomed location. the Italian joint (adesso) was gross, and had even worse management. They literally went through Yelp and threatened physical violence on people who left bad reviews.... I was among a few, I have a chain of e-mails from the owner about how he is going to do this or that to me when he saw me walking down the sidewalk.

    The Mexican joint... I liked, and liked the couple that ran it even more. They weren't a full service restaurant more a taqueria, but the rent probably is too high to support.. Had they had margaritas though they'd probably still be around.. Interesting about the church being the limiting factor to this location... :/ Probably also why 7 stars couldn't have liquor and went out..

    When 7 star's closed, the landlord said a restauranter was considering the location. They were hoping to convert their part of the parking lot into patio seating. But, now that I've read your comment, I'm guessing they passed on the plan because they couldn't get a liquor license due to the church proximity. Kind of shame.
    Perhaps they could get a BYOB license instead.

    To Ivan's point, I inquired on some of Lake View's facebook community forums whatever happened with a Guardian Angels proposal to set up an office in ELV near Belmont and Clark and I was brushed off with responses that having the Guardian Angels out on the streets and the Belmont stop would send the wrong kind of message. Apparently people getting mugged in broad daylight or on a busy daylight doesn't. I'm absolutely not saying the GAs are the end-all-be-all to crime problems, but I will say that gentrification left Lake View with a lot of residents with few street smarts, too preoccupied with superficial issues, and a general inability to understand causation vs correlation as it pertains to street safety. OTOH, the schools are certainly a lot better.

  • It's been my experience that crime seems to be something that's too easily brushed off or ignored...I hope we can get the awareness and attention on this matter on everyone's radar b/c all too often, inattention leads to inaction. I recently had an experience with my building related to this problem, (which I posted on a separate thread so this one doesn't get hijacked). Anyway, thanks for the comments.

Annoying Helicopter Buzzing the Neighborhood

Anyone notice increased helicopter traffic over the past couple of months, especially on the weekends? I am used to the normal activity (police, news, Obama visits) but this is super frequent and is flying pretty low to and from downtown. I did a quick Google search and I think it's a red helicopter operated by a tour company that includes Wrigley but not sure which specific company. If anyone knows which one it is, let me know and I will contact them and the Alderman's office.

helicopter over Lakeview east

Anyone know what its about?

  • Stephen Boisvert Lakeview pedestrian

    Also curious. My wife just came back from a run and said police had part of North Sheridan blocked off. Oakdale or Wellington (possibly) to Barry. I thought it was construction lifting but the copter looked like an emergency helicopter.

  • Ryan C. 15+ year Lakeview East resident

    When I drove to work this morning, there were flatbed trucks parked along Sheridan at Surf. They were loaded with what appeared to be large external wall panels for the new St. Joseph's Hospital building. I suspect the helicopters are either hoisting the panels into place, or observing the cranes which are hoisting the panels.

  • ab lake shore & barry

    The helicopter was picking up large, variously-shaped objects from the roof of the Hallmark building and offloading them lower down to the north of that building. They appeared to be construction materials and were hooked to a cable suspended from the helicopter. It was very efficient; each load was hooked to the cable in just a few seconds

Neighborhood arsonist is sure to appreciate the Christmas trees...
