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.

    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

    Dear neighbor, I hope you all enjoyed the 4th of July and the fireworks that were a little loud around our community. Last night was our successful kick-off to our Argyle Night Market. Despite an early rain we had over 3,000 people out to enjoy local vendors, live entertainment and great food.

Chicago DIY doom champions Bongripper stay their slow course on Terminal

Fri 7/13, 8 PM, Metro, 3730 N. Clark, $15, $12 in advance, 18+

    Chicago DIY doom champions Bongripper stay their slow course on Terminal
    It wouldn't be a Bongripper album if the Chicago doom squad didn't give it some sort of crass title that parodies metal's predilection for the vehemently vile and violent. Their new Terminal (Great Barrier) follows the great tradition they established on previous releases such as 2007's Hippie Killer, 2008's Hate Ashbury, 2010's Satan Worshipping Doom, and 2011's delicately named "Sex Tape" b/w "Snuff Film" seven-inch.

    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).

    Mercury Theater's Avenue Q Remount a Welcome Return for 2018 - Third Coast Review
    Since it first premiered in 2003, the hot-button topics of the puppet-based musical, Avenue Q, seem to have only become hotter and hotter. Racism, homophobia, even post-graduate, millennial strife seem to have deepened in the 15 years since the production first took critics and audiences by storm.
