Oak Street Beach searchers

Does anyone know what is being searched for in the shallow water at the north end of Oak Street Beach? There has been at least one person every day and as many as five on some days using electronic search wands.

  • I just responded to the other person on this site that asked the same question. Please see the comments.

What are they looking for?

Does anyone know what the five people are looking for in the shoreline waters of Oak Street Beach?
They have been there for over two hours.

  • I stopped and ask them yesterday what they were looking for. Simply put, they do it for fun. They actually just found a gold ring yesterday which had the inscription of someone's name and contact information which they will return to that person. They did also say that they found a ring from 60 years before and were able to trace it back to someone and return. How wonderful!

Indoor Parking Space Available

Does anyone need an indoor parking space? I have a space available to rent in the gold coast. It is available December 1 and it is a valet spot. No more street parking or driving around the block looking for a spot. The valet guys are really nice and it is a fabulous building located at 33 E. Cedar. Contact me at, Stacy Sunshinediva2011@gmail.com.....

Michigan & Chestnut retail development

Does anyone know what is going into the building on the south west corner of Mich & Chestnut? The old Escada store?

They're building out that huge space now. Curious what it is.

    I loved that iconic blue clock tower; I sure hope they aren't taking it apart permanently!

  • A worker said that it would be announced November 15th with a banner.

Parking lot on State & Goethe?

Does anyone know what happened to the parking lot on the south west corner of State & Goethe? It's closed but I heard nothing & there are no signs posted.

  • How can we find out what the plans are? They can't go against the zoning laws without petitioning for it & I haven't seen anything

  • The parking lot is being seal coated and striped will reopen soon. It looks great.
