The beautiful interior of 3 Squares Diner (Facebook)

    3 Squares Diner In The Lawrence House Slated To Open June 5
    Opening day is almost here. After jumping through all of the city's hoops needed to open a new restaurant with liquor, 3 Squares Diner has set the tentative opening date as June 5. If you'd like to join the 3 Squares family, they are hosting an open call for bartender, server, host, line cook, prep cook, busser, & dishwasher.

  • I asked Lawrence House staff about openings for their apartments and was told there's only a few units and some of the layouts have a waiting list to lease them. I'm not surprised.

  • Jeffrey Littleton Sheridan Park Neighbors Administrator/Local Artist

    I'll stop in for breakfast but the pancake House still a go-to.

    I couldn't care less about the upstairs leasing issues.

The United Colors of Uptown

Ald. Cappleman tweeted today:

    The United Colors of Uptown
    Ald. Cappleman tweeted today: "This gives everyone an idea of what the 17' sculpture in front of the Riv will look like. The sculpture can be lit at night (and also turned off) and will be a great addition to highlighting our Entertainment District. Installation will be after the July 4th weekend."
    https://www.uptownupdate.com

  • Murals aren't Uptown's strength but they don't need it with major pieces from internationally acclaimed artists like Thompson and Balmond. "Arpeggio" is a blockbuster of a piece in the nicely restored Gerber building. The Alderman, with support from City Hall and the CTA, is executing a brilliant plan of bringing major art to Uptown. Every community, especially those with entertainment districts as in Uptown, need that. It also provides inspiration for the area's younger or less experienced or less talented artists who are struggling to find their groove.

  • Jeffrey Littleton Sheridan Park Neighbors Administrator/Local Artist

    Since someone brought it up is the mile of murals a full mile yet?
    It is or very close to by now.

Status Check: Broadway & West Sheridan Transformation Continues

    Status Check: Broadway & West Sheridan Transformation Continues
    A corner of the 46th Ward that has truly undergone a massive transformation is Broadway and West Sheridan. "Viridan on Sheridan" has topped out on a spot that you might remember as the home of a defunct gas station for many years. BJB's rehab of 3838 N.
    https://www.uptownupdate.com

  • Unbelievable what happened once 3838 N. Broadway was renovated. It really opened the floodgates of change on that corner.

  • Wasn't that built on an old abandoned gas station? This is quite an improvement!

33-Unit Rental Building Rises on Sheridan, While Surrounding Area Booms

Progress at 4424 North Sheridan Road, as of Wednesday

    33-Unit Rental Building Rises on Sheridan, While Surrounding Area Booms
    Work continues on the 33-unit residential rental building going up at Sheridan and Agatite. We love the vintage look of the salvaged Chicago common bricks being used on the exterior. The two lots on which it is being built stood empty for nearly half a century until work began late last year.
    https://www.uptownupdate.com

  • I really like the old brick the developer used for this building. I can't recall ever having so much new development in Uptown. These are exciting days for our neighborhood.

    Work on a glassy transit-oriented development (TOD) is moving into high gear at 4555 N. Sheridan Road in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood. Slated to rise just steps from the newly overhauled Wilson CTA station, the 12-story project aims deliver 149 rental units, ground floor retail space, and parking for a mere 29 vehicles.

  • Uptown has multiple red line stations, several express bus routes, local busses, divvys, excellent bike infrastructure, plenty of taxi availability, quick access to Uber and Lyft, zipcars, and a plethora of other transit options. If you NEED a car, you probably shouldn't be moving to Uptown.

  • Remember when people wondered if Uptown would ever turn around? It's nice to see those days are over.
