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?

    @Douglas_Peep,
    Yes, I was being a little cheeky about Ickes happening, but I have been attending meetings for years now and still not a shovel in the ground yet. Conversely, the new South Loop Elementary was approved long after the Ickes plans and that is going up at a furious pace. While I believe something will go up at Ickes, I think people and the politicians are ambivalent about it. It would not surprise me at all to see a reduction in the final number of public and affordable units.
    As for a casino, it baffles me that the city just watches people cross the border 12 miles from our neighborhood and contribute to the State of Indiana. I have little doubt campaign contributions flow from those connected to our city officials to kill such an idea. Given the history of Ickes, I doubt a casino would ever go in on that site.

  • Ickes still planned - go through some design iterations and approvals. Being multi jurisdictional entities and involving federal $$ takes time https://chicago.curbed.com/2017/2/6/14522750/chicago-ickes-homes-redevelopment-plan-public-housing

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.

    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.

  • This guy isn't going to receive a slap on the wrist, he killed a cop, it's game over for him this time. It's the slap on the wrists for his previous (non-homicide) violent crimes that need to be the focal here, and what judges let this filth back out on the streets before he finally hit the murder lottery. These liberal judges need to be publicly shamed and outed.

Underground Pedway

How safe is the underground pedway near the museums? I know there's an entrance near 1100 S. Columbus Drive near the Aquarium. Input greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • Sheila A. Donovan Have been an owner at the Stratford since 2001.

    I've used the underpass to the museum campus countless times without a problem. In fact, I've never heard of anyone having a problem there, though like anywhere there might have been a few incidents. I consider it to be quite safe.

  • Thanks so much, everyone! I thought it was going to be completely underground, but it ended up being an open underpass as folks have mentioned. I'm curious to try the actual underground Pedway. I guess I should explore one of these days!

  • Yeah, why would want to place someone who indicates "Either Party"... you might end up with an independent judge rather than a right-wing partisan hack who wants to intimidate voters...
