Preservation Chicago names 7 endangered buildings

This Lincoln Park home, at 1841 N. Orleans St., manages to bridge the green thumb-modern gap, with huge windows that let the sunlight in and a proper side-yard. Not convinced? $2.9 million can buy a lot, so take a look and feel the organic vibes.

Clarendon Park Community Center at 4501 N. Clarendon Ave. made the list because "extensive, heavy-handed and inappropriate alterations" have put it at risk, according to Preservation Chicago.

Buyer looking for 3 bedroom home in Lincoln Park.

New or newer construction preferred. Or a complete renovation.
Thanks!

  • Hi, I have some single family home listings coming soon in both Lincoln Park and Bucktown. Email me and let me know more specifically what you're looking for, agreenberg@pearsonrealtygroup.com.

    Best,

    Aaron

  • Michael Bucktown Resident

    This "Airborn" fellow has posted very similar ads in Bucktown (looking for house in Bucktown) and Lakeview (looking for house in Lakeview) sections of EB too. Not sure what his or her agenda is, but surely finding a realtor in Chicago shouldn't be a problem. EB is not the right forum for this.

Trees chopped down

Trees are being taken down in the Fremont and Wisconsin area. Does anyone know why? I have not yet heard back from the Alderman's office.

  • Same thing happened over on Belden. I tried calling and writing the Alderman to see if they will at least be replacing the trees. I understand the Ash disease, but it's now been over a year and it's just stumps everywhere. I have yet to hear from the Alderman.

  • Here's what I heard from the Alderman's office:
    Thank you for your email. Alderman Smith does not grant approvals or permits for tree removals, as the Bureau of Forestry is charged with inspecting trees for potential disease and removing as is deemed appropriate. That being said, we have contacted the Bureau of Forestry for an update on the tree that was removed, and will also input a request with the Bureau of Forestry for replacement of the tree this spring.

NY Wing Factory

Does anyone know what's going on with the "coming soon" NY wing factory on Lincoln? I've seen it vacant for a year or so but then thought I saw somehow working inside the other day.

Boots on Cars

I've notice a drastic increase in boots on cars in the past week. Does anyone know what caused this spike? A friend of mine got one and only had 1 outstanding ticket. Please be careful and pay your tickets

  • sos

    City changed law a long time ago, it only takes one ticket to get a boot. the booters go in waves.

  • I just went to the City of Chicago website referring to the boot and it said 3 or more tickets. Where is the info regarding just one ticket? That is a shock. Thanks for the info...

  • sos

    It was ten or so years ago it was changed to one ticket, maybe it has been rolled back to three tickets.

Police - Belden/Clark

Driving north on Clark I saw 3 undercover police cars parked with their lights flashing at the intersection of Belden & Clark. One looked as though it had pulled over a CTA bus. Does anyone know what happened?

Aluminum Coating for Flat Roof

I have a 2007 new build (the standard issue brick rectangle) with a flat roof (that has what I believe is the original aluminum coating on the roof). I have started getting estimates for the application of a new layer of aluminum coating on the roof and the estimates ($1200+) strike me as a bit high for what I understand the service to entail (broom clean and application of one coat of aluminum coating). I would greatly appreciate thoughts on (1) how much this service should cost (Angie's List is not helping me here) and/or (2) whether most people just do this themselves. Thanks in advance!

Garage Break In

Just wanted to let others know in the neighborhood to be vigilant about keeping their garages secure. Last evening, our garage in the 2700 block of N. Wilton was broken into. It is believed that the suspect entered through an unlocked (or not completely shut door), stole property, and put the property in a waiting assistant's vehicle in the alley.

I have made a police report, but wanted to make others aware to be more careful.
