Looking for a garage spot for rent

Hey everyone, I just moved to the area by Milwaukee and Addison, so right on the boarder of OIP, by Schurz.
I was promised a garage spot by my landlord, but apparently another tenant has 3 spots in our 4-car garage.
If anyone has a garage spot they'd be willing to rent for my car, I'd be ever so grateful.

Knox Studio Water Tower - what's up?

Anyone know what's happening with the water tower that looms over Knox Studios? I noticed they have a crane above it and workers on top. I hope they're just doing some repairs - I'd really hate to see them take it down. It's sort of a landmark and has an "urban decay" look going - I'd miss it if it's gone.

  • They’re taking it down. Wasn’t structurally safe anymore

  • Yeah, I spoke to them as it was coming down. Apparently the City was making them do improvements and it was going to run more to fix it vs. just take it down.

    What's interesting was that Knox wanted to fix it up a few years back and "brand" it...

    What's interesting was that Knox wanted to fix it up a few years back and "brand" it as part of their studio and they were told they couldn't because it was a Historical Landmark - yet they could just tear it down????

    I know not related, but to me this was a cool structure that's been there since 1919, almost 100 years - just gone. We also just had to tear down the Bank building at 6 Corners and now have a lovely hole that just sits there - and this is progress?
