On hand, along with the business owners, was property owner Jeffrey Weinberg of Drexel Properties, who recently purchased the mixed-use property and made significant investments to help land tenants to these long-vacant spaces.

    Shes a very good Alderman, 39th ward.

  • Lupe New to area

    Her office was helpful in pushing through my building permit, which took longer than anticipated. Also, received 2 water barrels within days of requesting them. Keeping my fingers crossed that we soon get residential permit parking approval on our block. We've already submitted the necessary signatures, just waiting for it to happen. New construction on Lawrence and Kostner will definitely add to the congestion. Tough job trying to appease all, but manageable.
