Looking for Therapy Office Rental Space

Hello,

I am curious if anyone has any leads or suggestions of office rental space for a small therapy practice in the area, ideally near diversey and pulaski, or pulaski and belmont.

Thanks so much!

  • Loulu Me

    The Fields?

  • On Belmont between Pulaski and Milwaukee where the AT&T store is located, there is some rental spaces.

  • Physical/massage therapy? There's a Naprapathic college near Milwaukee & Pulaski that I believe rents space.

Shooting ??

Does anyone know anything about several shots fired around the 1900 block of Tripp around 4:30 pm on Thursday night? I always call the police whenever I hear anything but yesterday I was not sure, however within a minute or two of hearing the sounds there were police cars with lights no sirens in my alley. Wondering what the scoop was.....

School Project: Logan Square gentrification

Hello, I'm working on a high school project about affordable housing and gentrification in the Logan Square neighborhood.
If you're a renter/home owner or a member of an organization that is concerned about this issue, would you please answer a few questions?(Please identify which when responding)

Would please define gentrification briefly in your own words?
What kind of inequity is in play with regard to this issue (racial/economic/other)?
Are the existing conditions sustainable?
What would be a solution and how would success be measured?

  • Joe

    The word gentrification was invented in the 60's by a person that lived in a Kingdom. It is an observation of human behavior coined in a place that does not recognize Individual rights and property rights as one in the same. Humans fought massive wars throughout history over this principle....

    The word gentrification was invented in the 60's by a person that lived in a Kingdom. It is an observation of human behavior coined in a place that does not recognize Individual rights and property rights as one in the same. Humans fought massive wars throughout history over this principle. Lands with castles see property as title and power that should be controlled and doled out by those in power.

    Do a project on personal liberty and how the right to own property or not erodes liberty. Does allowing a 3rd party to control an individual or an individuals property lead to corruption and looting? If government used it's power to protect each individual equally vs if a government used it's power to take from one individual and give to another.

    The inequity at play is the loss of an individuals freedom. An individual is the smallest minority.

    granting gov power over the individual will be used negatively and unfairly to benefit only those in power. Even if the benefit is to earn votes and get media coverage so they can win a seat in Congress, leaving the voters they duped behind with nothing but pandering to cling to. There is no definition of success in the context of using gov against an individual, not to protect but to take from.

  • will h, could you please post a link to a survey or Google form, so responses are more private?

  • Achilles Flaneur ear witness

    Hi Will,

    I suggest reaching out to Sharon Hoyer at the Dill Pickle and Mark Fishman at Fishman Properties. Also Gina at Bird's Nest Salon, and Rick at Logan Square Automotive. The perspective of people who both own/run businesses and live in the neighborhood would be interesting to hear.

    Best of luck with your project!

    Also, Thanks again A.. The alderman has everything to do with a community. Why do you think the people voted for them? The alderman works for the community. It is how you bring a community together.

    Albany Park had pretty much the same stats as KelPark and petty crimes was at a minimum until the neighborhood started changing.. Most crimes were domestic violence and a few car break-ins and theft..

    I am actually not here to compare neighborhoods but I appreciate both of your responses from (A) and Jenny response, although it was not the answer to my question I originally posted.

    I don't really check my email anymore so I didn't subscribe to that but she does have a Facebook page and there is a ward page as well so I stay up to date that way. She does have outings with the community. We had the Shakespeare at the park the last two summers and they just had a neighborhood carnival at the Aldi on Wrightwood and Pulaski. I stay up to date by Facebook and they also have a Kelvyn park group on the Nextdoor site. The Hermosa Association has done a lot of great things to make the Kelvyn Park and Hermosa areas better. The neighborhood has improved over the last 10 years but it does take time.

Moving to Armitage and Kostner

My wife and I are looking to purchase a house near Armitage and Kostner.

I am not extremely familiar with the area, so I was hoping for some insights regarding the crime and safety of the area. My wife and I are in our mid 20s and currently live near Milwaukee and Armitage and before that near Diversey and Pulaski (a couple blocks east of Pulaski).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • Miguel N. Dejesus Man of Peace

    The area is not riddled with a lot of crime!! Now Armtiage&Pulaski is a cess pool of crime and gangs! Overall, Kostner and Armitage is pretty safe!

  • You are in your 20's and can afford / plan to buy?!! Wonderful! I have no problems with neighbors. Family oriented people. Welcome to the area!
