    It's not a rent crash or anything, more of a levelin' out, probably a mix of over-building, a slightly declining population, condo deconversion...other factors....?

    It is better for the tenants no doubts.

  • I think they've done a great job. And the location is perfect. Granted, there are probably a tiny handful of 'activists' who'd rather see tents and Helen murals here. Fantastic use of this great building I think!

Violence in Edgewater

Hey neighbors I just wanted to clue everyone in to what happened on Thursday night/ Friday morning on Kenmore Avenue between Foster and Berwyn. There was an attempted and fortunately unsuccessful drive by sometime between 9-11 pm on our block with multiple shots fired. The suspect who was a member of the Latin Kings was apprehended in the same location the following morning between 8-9 am as he returned to try to finish the job. He was armed at the time of the arrest. I wanted to post about it as a reminder to keep your head on a swivel and that we as neighbors have to look out for eachother.

  • You are absolutely correct !! Thanks for keeping everyone informed.
