Continued downward

With the event of a smash and grab on Michigan avenue (nieman marcus) and the mayors son getting mugged in front of his own home, I think it shows that no criminal fears the Chicago police. They have been reduced to lens cleaners on red light and speed cameras. I think the city is going to replace their sidearms with windex. As I have said countless times: Solving violent crimes generates no revenue to the city. And thus, there is no upside. Now, if you are being mugged or worse, when you call 911 just mention a car in a tow zone. You will get an immediate response.

    I keep wondering when people are going to figure out that the now-removed parking meters were a crime deterrent in that they prevent people from driving into the front of stores.

  • Cops will soon become reluctant to be cops any longer and switch to accounting careers. The criminals will have the last laugh and will join the protesters who are making their lives easier.

    Protesters want a change in our government, the people that are destroying other people's property and threatening other people are nothing but rioters/terrorists who are hell bent on destroying this country. We Americans have I think little to fear from terrorists from other countries when we have our own homegrown terrorists right here in this country. Our government is so hell bent on getting our vote so they can stay in office so that they can continue to rob and steal from the poor and what's left of the middle class in this country. I love the *Idea* of America and I am very disgusted with my government for they are no longer one the same, they are 2 very different entities.
    Sad that most Americans don't read any history for if things continue the way they are, then as history says, all kingdoms, empires and world powers will crumble to dust when greed and corruption take hold and that is what will happen eventually in this country if we don't get some real honest hard working Americans in congress.

Neighborhood update on the Gold Coast Jewel

One of the most well-known areas for drug activity and drug arrests in the Gold Coast is at the intersection of Clark and Division. The 18th district police officers know this all too well, having held sting operations to cut down on criminal activity. Neighbors say they see many drug deals happen in the Jewel parking lot and as a result have put pressure on Jewel to improve the situation.

One of the most well-known areas for drug activity and drug arrests in the Gold Coast is at the intersection of Clark and Division. The 18th district police officers know this all too well, having held sting operations to cut down on criminal activity. Neighbors say they see many drug deals happen in the Jewel parking lot and as a result have put pressure on Jewel to improve the situation.

Discussion of redevelopment plans for the Jewel at the corner of Clark began between four and five years ago when Jewel put out a request for developer proposals. In the early stages, the idea was to build a large condo complex over 50 stories tall with a brand-new Jewel store at its base. Over the last few years of talks this plan may end up being between 32 or 35 stories.

The current proposal for the Jewel site includes three stories of parking over the jewel store, with the lower level for jewel customers, and the top two levels for residents of the new condo complex. A proposed 360 overall parking spaces would be in this development, with about 105 spaces for jewel parking. Additionally there would be a set up for bike parking, and bike repair stations installed as well.

Cars coming off of Clark Street would drive into the parking garage, they would be able to exit off of Division Street in the middle of the block and onto Clark street heading south. The alley behind the current Jewel would afford more space for semi trucks to deliver. This entire construction would last a proposed 20 months, with Jewel being closed between 10 and 12 months.

Some neighborhood groups have already signed off on the plan. With this project still on its way to the City Council Committee on Zoning, Landmarks and Building Standards, there is time to actively have a say in whether you feel this project has moved forward in the right way, with the neighborhood's best interests in mind.

More to come next week...

    Glad you were able to get the link open.I did make the meeting at Newberry Library - a lot of answers that made all of the candidates sound like politicians - answers pretty much designed to give answers that they thought the audience wanted to hear.

    I favor the Clark/Division project - hopefully it will help to cleanup the corner - I only live a block away. Chicago is also considering a change to their vagrancy ordinances - that may also help.

    I agree with the comments regarding permits being given out at a record pace... the glass structures replacing architecture that has made the area what it is, has not been given enough attention. Elm St condos were given permits to replace all balconies with glass ... on a vintage building...

    I agree with the comments regarding permits being given out at a record pace... the glass structures replacing architecture that has made the area what it is, has not been given enough attention. Elm St condos were given permits to replace all balconies with glass ... on a vintage building and special assessed owners for this multi-MILLION dollar project ... why would the city permit be issued ? There was no mandate that balconies needed replacement... and glass!!! I would ask the city and state open up an investigation. The alderman has been of little help.
