Atrium Village ??

Does anyone know what is happening with the Atrium Village re-do?

I know that the church-consortium that owned the complex sold to a big developer last spring. Recently there was a news article about what one church did with their proceeds so the sale has definitely been completed and the money distributed.

The City permits were approved some time ago. Are the buildings at Wells and Division being emptied?

  • The sale went through earlier this year and so the property is being managed by an out of state company now. They will be doing construction in phases, so only emptying one low-rise by moving people to different buildings and starting construction there. Then people will be moved into the...

    The sale went through earlier this year and so the property is being managed by an out of state company now. They will be doing construction in phases, so only emptying one low-rise by moving people to different buildings and starting construction there. Then people will be moved into the new building and old ones taken down over several years. Construction probably won't start until next year...I think they've just been getting all the legal issues in order in the meantime. For example, my new lease had a clause about the possibility of being moved into a different building within 7 years. That's all I know!

Find out how taxes/TIFs in the 27th Ward have been spent

Just saw this and thought others might be interested.

There is a free meeting about how our taxes/TIFs in the 27th Ward have been spent and allocated, and more. The meeting is on Thursday, November 6, from 6:30pm - 8:30pm, at 1044 W Randolph St.

I’ve always wondered where our taxes were going, how it was being spent, and whether it was being spent on things needed, like parks, schools, traffic relieve.

The meeting is being hosted by Gabe Beukinga, candidate for 27th Ward Alderman, and Tom Tresser of the CivicLab TIF Illumination Project.

    We have been blessed to be a part of this special school for 4 years. It has nurtured our daughters academically, socially, and most importantly, spiritually. The foundation of instruction is a Biblical worldview, and the teachers live what they teach. It also offers a loving and inclusive parent community with many opportunities to serve in the classroom and connect both inside and outside of the school. We love CHA Chicago!

Greyhound engine noise

Does anybody hear the engine noise from their facility at night? It's becoming quite loud

  • It's been like that forever. As the weather gets colder the buses are warming up. 3, 4, 5AM you can hear it across the river. I adjusted and slept through it by the time winter arrived but it is annoying.

    You should try Near North Animal Hospital (Wells and Division); they have taken lost dogs in before and were either able to locate the owners or find a foster/ adoptive home.
