Anyone know about living at 7321 South Shore or 6700 South Shore?

Hi All,
I've been investigating moving back to South Shore (I'm in California now, but grew up in HP/SS and lived at 73rd & Jeff from '85 to '98). Been looking at real estate, paying close attention to all the reports you've given on all the unfortunate changes in the community in the last few years, but still interested because frankly, I LOVED living there and I have faith in it making a rebound (in large part because of the...

Hi All,
I've been investigating moving back to South Shore (I'm in California now, but grew up in HP/SS and lived at 73rd & Jeff from '85 to '98). Been looking at real estate, paying close attention to all the reports you've given on all the unfortunate changes in the community in the last few years, but still interested because frankly, I LOVED living there and I have faith in it making a rebound (in large part because of the Everyblock member community). I've been looking at two high rises, 7321 SS Drive and 6700 SS Drive. Re 7321, it's an older building, looks beautiful and has some reasonable prices for condos, but I wonder mainly about heating an older place like that, if it's sky high or not. 6700 is newer, presumably with more efficient heating, but I also wonder about the level of noise from other apartments in both of them. Does anyone have any experience (good or bad) living in those two buildings? Even know some one who lives there I might be able to communicate with? Thanks!

    Thanks Clarice, I'll take a look. Thanks Sheila; but I still don't know what building you and Normjohn call the "Quadrangle". Is that the one at 6700 South Shore?

  • Hugh_
    I'm hoping to give you a tour of 7321.

    I never heard of Pueblo supermarkets...

  • Actually,this is my first time hearing of that grocery chain.

Dominicks

So I just read the city will be buying the dominicks mall? How will this effect the chances of getting a grocer back? Am I hearing this right? Any concise info would be great, since my pc is ill.

    Here's an article on the city considering eminent domain:http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/breaking/chi-dominicks-south-shore-city-20141007-story.html

    - The owner of the property is based in California and isn't as sensitive to the needs of the community that a local owner would be.

    - The owner has no incentive to quickly replace Dominick's or quickly invest the reported $6 million needed in improvements since the Dominick's lease runs through May of 2015. They're basically collecting 18 months of inflated on a closed store with no maintenance required.

    - To lease the space to another tenant would require improvements and rent concessions as it has been reported that what they're asking, and what Dominick's has been paying, is above fair market value.

    - When the news initially broke that Dominick's would continue to pay their rent through May 2015, I knew that the owner wouldn't have a sense of urgency in working to find a new grocer.
