It's About Time

As we sat at the Cubs final game of 2007, our backs were up against the chain link fence that overlooks Addison. We peered out at the stores on the south side of the street. There's Sports World, a ticket broker, a garage/mechanic shop, and the 7-11.

All pretty crappy buildings considering what's been built on Clark Street the last 15 years.

"When are the going to redevelop this?" the banker wondered.

Sooner than we thought. (Warning: Link opens a large PDF)

It's about time this stretch of land was redeveloped. That has got to be killing the Cubs that this project is moving ahead while the Cubs plan for a garage/restaurant/museum remains stalled.

Sounds like a decent development plan. The structure does seem a little high in some of the views. If the garage is built along Clark and this goes up on Addison, it could result in intersecting canyons and a tight feeling.
