Update regarding property at 927 W Irving Pk Rd

The alderman's office has contacted me with correct information regarding why construction work stopped at the site. Here's what they say:

" The owner is Dave Gassman who also owns and is developing the property on the SE corner of W. Sheridan and Broadway. I believe they were taking a break on the Irving lot to complete the W. Sheridan/Broadway building. I will let him know that the building is not secured and that there is graffiti that needs to be removed."

This is different info that I received earlier that said Howard Brown had bought the property. Not so.

    I CANNOT BELIEVE LITTLETON'S COMMENT WAS CALLED A "personal attack." Calling out elected officials is EXACTLY what everyblock is FOR! so I'm REPOSTING IT because I could just as well have written it myself.
    "There is really only one reason why projects get stalled... financing problem of some kind.

    There are other reasons like "Stop Work Order" for violations but no indication of that.

    Why can't the Alderman's office stop playing PR Dept. for sub-par developers like Gassman? Why is his project which is smaller than the one across the street taking longer when it started first?

    Gassman and Cappleman are like two nuts in a shell. The Gassman also pulled out of a project recently at Wilson and Magnolia just saying.

    Rule of thumb....do NOT believe ANYTHING of substance from Ald. Cappleman's office about developers."

Abandoned construction

For years, an empty lot overgrown with weeds and garbage sat at 927 W. Irving Pk Rd. In March or April, construction started on a 14-unit apartment building. The foundation seems to be in but all work stopped a couple of months ago. Now there is gang graffiti art all over the wall. Does anyone know about what is happening with this? I contacted the Alderman's office last week but no reply as yet. The site is a real eyesore.

    Why a tram on B'way, when we already have the #36 bus and the Red Line? If it's a free tram, why do we deserve one when other neighborhoods don't have one?

    As a rock music fan who doesn't enjoy schlepping out to the burbs (and burning gasoline) or the United Center (with its post-show parking lot and Uber/taxi fusterclucks), I welcome returning the Uptown to its early-'80s glory. Having a solid music entertainment district in Uptown would benefit all area businesses (maybe create new ones), boost the tax base, and give area residents another fantastic amenity--because city transit & safety services would also be beefed up. And then there are all those short-term construction and long-term staffing jobs that would be created. (Not to mention what a shame it is to let an architectural gem sit idle or be demolished).

Mr. Waguespack
32nd Ward Alderman:

My name is Jim Moore, I have been a resident of Lakeview for 25 years and this is my first letter to an Alderman.This AIRBNB situation is important and whats being done by the city is a travesty.

My property taxes are $12,000 now and going up at a good clip. A big chunk of this is to pay for pensions that in this state,cannot be adjusted in anyway downwards, apparently. Never mind that these pensions are so outrageously generous compared to everyone else.

In Chicago you can take unused sick and vacation days and lump them all in your last year to boost your pension,
almost everyone does this. Over 20 to 25 years you can easily accumulate 200 - 250 days

So the $79,000 plus vacation and sick pay its another $40,000 to $70,000 making the pension calculate off of $119,000 - $149,000 a year,,,

On AIRBNB, a lot of people use this to KEEP THERE HOMES, with all these new taxes and fees and red light camera stuff, we have
had it. We had $700 in completely ridiculous red light charges. We have these new taxes to pay for just a bit more of the pensions.
And AIRBNB and UBER, two ways people can make money? And the city won't licence us but they will fine us for not having a proper license? Nice.

lWe have to go through this nightmare of shared room, vacation home and bed and breakfast, none of which really apply in any case. Meanwhile we
are threatened with fines.

Why? A dollar of Airbnb revenue or a dollar of hotel revenue generates the same taxes for the city. We already pay those. There is no difference. The only thing
happening here is the non-tax money does to the hotels instead of the citizens that need it.
And it is a nightmare. You could limit AIRBNB to primary homes come out with a simple license and everything would
be just fine. That all that needs to be done.

  • If you think that the city has time to go through every AirBnB on a case by case basis making sure your renters aren't creeps and your neighbors are cool with you running one, you're mistaken. Although it is run through a weird, illegitimate-seeming website, an AirBnB is a business like everyone else's. Of course the city is going to tax that.

Sluggish stage combat is Fight Quest 4 Peace’s kryptonite

Through 7/7: Fri-Sat 7:30 PM, Otherworld Theatre, 3914 N. Clark, 815-277-7855, otherworldtheatre.org, $10 suggested donation.

    Sluggish stage combat is Fight Quest 4 Peace's kryptonite
    Otherworld Theatre has taken over the former Public House Theatre space in Lakeview, and the acquisition may have taken a big bite out of the operating budget because its debut production there is a continuation of the very cost-effective series.

Furniture refinisher

Does anyone know or can recommend a furniture refinisher who will work on the project on site? I've contacted a couple of the commercial establishments, and after getting quotes thought I'd try Plan B.

  • Jeffrey Littleton If you can't be a poet, be the poem.

    Try finding someone on Thumbtack.com, lots of small independent operators.

  • I don't know of one, but you can try the vintage resellers like Vintage Garage sale and see if they have vendors that do it; or go to the Randolph Market on the weekends.
    https://www.vintagegaragechicago.com/
    https://www.randolphstreetmarket.com/
    As a last thought, you can try services in Craigslist either placing an ad (Services wanted) or see if one is listed.

What's a bioswale? Can I help?

Bioswales are included in the bump-outs on Berteau. Plants that make up a bioswale, filter, absorb and slow stormwater on its way to the sewer. This helps prevent sewers from being overwhelmed and helps reduce neighborhood street, basement and vehicle flooding. To help learn how to maintain these bioswales, email Terry at motordc@aol.com. And if you see litter in a bioswale, please pick it up.
