And here is what is coming:
From Tom Tunney’s office, there has been a proposal for the Rise Sushi and Galleria Liquors location to build a new mixed-used Transit Oriented Development (TOD). The proposal would include 30 apartments with ground-level retail next to the Southport “L” line.
Per the developer, “It is important to note that NONE of our residents will have the ability to secure a 383 Parking permit. Therefore, since this is a transit-oriented development, residents except for the 7 units that will have access to parking spaces will not own a car. This development will not cause residents to park within the neighborhood since they will not be able to secure the required parking permit.”
The Lakeview Chamber of Commerce agrees with building this development as it would help local businesses and the local economy (more people in a dense urban area = more local dollars being spent). You can read more about the benefits of TODs here.
Building being remodeled, paint going up. Yay!

The Butcher’s Tap is now open, and here is a look at their new menu. Think it will do better on Southport then Messner’s/WheelHouse Wrigley did?
“The new bar is now open and called The Butcher’s Tap, a nod to the butcher shop that opened in 1932 at the same location at 3553 N. Southport Ave. Ownership said they’ve completed 95 percent of the interior renovation which is expected to be complete in early December. Workers gutted the Wheel House space, which opened in 2012 after replacing Messner’s Bar and Grill. Ownership lauded changes including rolling glass garage door windows and a new audio and video system and 25 televisions.”
