Development near Lincoln and Roscoe

There are 5 vacant, contiguous buildings on west side of Lincoln just south of Roscoe...One of the buildings (which was formerly a thrift shop) is undergoing a major construction, rehab...Does anyone know if there is anything in the works there?

  • L

    South of Fullerton at the site of the old Children's Hospital, there is going to be a big new redevelopment which will completely change that area and probably take a long time to get finished. I'm assuming the local property owners are getting ready to attract new or different tennants as a result.

  • L

    One more thing, when the hospital closed it meant that lots of people eating and drinking were no longer in the neighborhood everyday. Businesses were forced to closed due to lack of customers as a result.

New Streetlights

Just installed on Greenview. I think they chose a fixture that allows too much light and glare to be undirected and so spills horizontal (Everyone's windows and eyes). Rather they should have chosen a lamp that directs the light to the ground. Also I am praying that they will paint the bright shining aluminum. The City has made so many good choices in the past regarding public fixtures. Retro and period street lamps painted monochromatic dark greens. Someone blew this one.)

    We had a similar problem. The blackout curtains I bought weren't dark enough, so I backed them with dark colored twin sheets. Hung horizontally the were the perfect size for our big window. You can avoid my mistake by buying dark colored blackout curtains instead of cute ones. :-)

  • I bought dark colored fleece to hang in my windows after trying white blackout fabric that I found didn't work. The light weight of the fleece is a big plus.

Counseling Center on Sheffield - closed. What next?

The adult center that I believe provided various services on Sheffield next to Leona's has closed. Anyone have an idea what happened and what is next for this property? Tear down or new tenants?

Chicago News Website

Can anyone recommend a good website for local Chicagoland news? Not looking for anything with a political slant, just want to read local news on line. The Chicago Tribune site is limited and loaded with ads. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Muskie's Closing

Sigh... Another institution bites the dust. Muskie's (corner of Lincoln/George/Lakewood) is closing either this Saturday or next Saturday. They are renters and the owner wants to do something else with the property. The cleaner next door also has to close soon.

  • L

    They were taking down the Muskie's sign this morning.

    Ah Medusa's. As we legal >21s used to say back then, as we drank at Berlin and Avalon, "Medusa's: No alcohol, just juice and drugs."

Demo at Ashland and Melrose?

Any idea what is happening there now? Last I heard Target was not going in. Anyone heard anything new?

  • With our luck it will be more yoga studios, gymbories, nail salons and daycares because we don't have enough of those, LOL!

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    You need those mattress stores. Chicago is #1 in bed bug infestation throughout the nation. Those cigar smoking White men that invested in those mattress franchises are more "aware" than you. Commercial leases there are expensive there, obviously they're doing good with their ROI.

Peoples Gas, what's going on?

For the third time this year, Peoples Gas is drilling on the same spot of the 3600 north Ashland Avenue. When we finally got the street smoothly resurfaced after the first two sloppy jobs, here we go again. One guy drilling, four guys watching and our utilities going up again.

City Dough Space

Does anyone know what is happening with the City Dough space on Sheffield/Wellington? It seems like it has been closed for a while with little to no news (and I am starting to OD on Panes...).

  • I miss Pompei too. It was so popular and good. Why did they close? And is there rumor they are coming back?

  • The rumor I heard about Pompei was that the owner sold the location to DMK with the rights to still operate the location as a Pompei. Then for whatever reason they decided to close it.
