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.

Piano teacher?

Hi, I'm looking for a piano teacher for my five year old. Any recommendations? We have a piano, so we're able to have someone come to us, if needed. Thanks!

  • These are great ideas, thank you! I also found a site, takelessons.com, where you can look within an area code and see reviews for a teacher, too. I'm going to check out the places you recommended, as well. Thank you!

  • Follow-up, I tried the takelessons.com and had a miserable experience. Wouldn't stop harassing me after I created a profile, and when I did try to enlist a teacher, the teacher backed out within 30 minutes. Was told I would have someone try and help find a replacement, but no one ever contacted me and I called to get a refund. So, just FYI! Now looking at other options.

Some friends of mine on 21st street are having a clogged toilet problem. Three-story house, it's a problem with the toilet on the second floor, only. Seems isolated to that stack. They need a good plumber, but obv. like everyone else, they're budget-minded folks.

Obnoxious Loudness in Pilsen

How can people in certain parts of Pilsen tolerate Banda music and drunkeness in the middle of the night? How? The is a total lack of regard for people who have wake up early. Moreover, if you call the police, you become a target for their animosity. Does anyone know how to silence these folks without becoming a target?

  • Ringo712 Block Captain

    I live in La Villita so it's the same if not more so. It comes with the territory for living around Mexican Immigrants. It's a different way of life you need to get used to if you want to live Amongst different cultures

  • I've been here 6 years..a transplanted South Chicagoan.. Its a shame gentrification has softened peoples ears.. There are bigger fish to fry..but keep complaining about Banda music.. The assault rifles down Cermak Road during school hours bring perspective..

Pilsen Alliance not so innocent

The Pilsen Alliance isn't so innocent when it comes to race.

  • As a real estate professional ANYWHERE you can't "steer". Meaning you can't direct people to a neighborhood if the intention is good or bad.
    Example: You can't direct a Mexican family to Pilsen simply because they're Mexican and Pilsen presently has a high Mexican population.
    The intention may be good...

    The intention may be good but for a real estate agent, it's illegal even so.
    I don't read any veiled meaning in these posts.
    What the Pilsen Alliance is doing is directly "steering" and even worse.
    They're singling out racial groups as enemies in their own neighborhood for the fact these people are not Mexican.
    Racism to a major degree.
    They have not interest in harmony.
    Their cause is self serving and delusional.

  • Ringo712 Block Captain

    Looks to me there's alot of Indians and other Asian groups moving in as well. What they all have in common is green money. If you don't have money you can't choose were you live.
    Pilsen Alliance are nothing but a bunch of jerks.
