Farewell Dear Neighbors

It’s been a good run here on Everyblock. May you all do well and be safe. Thank you for being caring neighbors.

    Having seen the conversations from other neighborhoods, I'm grateful that our share of trolls and racists was relatively low. Relatively.

What are these tower things?

Any idea what these tower things are that appeared a few weeks ago? They're south of Belmont, in that open field between the playground and the tennis courts right next to southbound Lake Shore Dr. Just curious.

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.

    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."

Recos for sports wear store

Hi everybody, I want to buy 2 sports caps for friends. I see sooo many stores around Wrigley. Which ones do you recommend that I shop for the sports caps (Cubs & White Sox); low-priced, not premium priced.
Thanks.

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.

  • CT Just a guy in Lakeview

    Does anyone know if this is what happened to the building at the corner of grace and broadway, across from iHop? The ground floor has been under construction for as long as I’ve been in Chicago. I always wondered why they never finished it. Thanks

  • I have been wondering what the deal is with the mostly built, relatively tall building on Irving Park next to Byron's Hot Dogs. Seems like they got 90% done with the new building and stopped. Anyone know anything about it?
