Suggestions for Block of Land For Sale

Hi Neighbors. We noticed that there is a for sale sign at a parking lot on the 2100 Block of South Indiana (adjacent to The Lex and across from the Wintrust Arena). Our community needs a full grocery store and a pharmacy. Any suggestions regarding how we can encourage these types of businesses into our developing neighborhood?

  • A land developer would never put a supermarket or pharmacy in that area due to the state of development. (Unless it was part of a larger full-block development and other buildings that would anchor the space and provide a large base of customers.) The area is changing too rapidly, as well.

    Bronzeville would be a better place to site a new supermarket or pharmacy, near the hospital. If that type of development went in other parts of the South Loop, it would be going head-to-head with Marianos or Jewel.

  • @Gary -- You're confusing me ... this area is developing like crazy, why wouldn't a developer want to include a store/pharmacy in an area that will have a ton more density within the next few years? Bronzeville just added a Mariano's and there's already a Jewel on King Drive. If anything, that neighborhood should be looking to add a Target or another big box store to anchor Lake Meadows (a development in desperate need of some TLC). The Jewel is laughably bad....

    Black Panther's identity politics give the superhero genre a fresh spin
    The first black superhero in mainstream American comics, Marvel's Black Panther came with an African pedigree: in real life he's the ancestral king of a small, impoverished sub-Saharan nation that conceals a secret empire, the whole operation empowered by an asteroid from outer space.

    Yes, that's why I said I like the movie, I think it's a great vehicle. I'm as anti-PC/anti-identity politics as they come, but I must admit I love seeing the portrayal of strong black characters like this (especially the women), even though every fiber of my being knows that goes contrary to my personal views: which are that women (black and otherwise) are strong and beautiful based on their actions and individual merits, not by the pigment ratios of their skin.

    I also gotta say, have we been watching the same movies over the course of a generation? Hollywood has done a pretty extensive job (in my opinion) of playing to the underdog ... it's what makes for a great story in most cases. I honestly can't remember the last time I saw a downtrodden, minority, or otherwise disenfranchised group that wasn't either the heroes of the subject matter, or at the very least "taught" the over-arching lesson/moral of the entire movie.

    Again, I'm not saying we don't need the alternative narratives, we do (especially when they deal with historical context). But, from a cultural standpoint, we need more portrayals of black professors, scientists and intellectuals ... those are the real superheroes that will change real lives and hopefully get minority children on the right path to build equity in their lives ... because Superman (black or otherwise) isn't coming.

Criminal activity

Residents are not being notified of neighborhood criminal activity in a timely manner.
If residents and guests are not notified by the city or association management companies, the criminals are free to attack again until they are caught.
There must be a better notification system sent immediately once an attack is reported by a victim.

  • @JL

    You're off your rocker if you think that will happen. The psycho who did that will be in prison for quite a while. There's just too much evidence against him.

    However, I do wish they'd put as much effort into convicting ALL the murderers as they will with the commander's death.

    John Adams III
    will be in prison for quite a while.So what your saying is he will get out
    How about this. Bring back the death penalty so people like this will not be getting out of jail. Instead be carry out of jail
    Also your words not mine.
    In a perfect world, not in Chicago. He'll sadly receive a slap on the wrist and be let back out sooner than you think.
