Looking east on Irving Park (once known as Graceland Ave) to Pine Grove and the lake, 1908, Chicago.

“The Pattington” still stands.

Southport\'s TOD could begin development late this year (update – looks like later in 2018 now)

We reached out to Alderman Tom Tunney on the status of the proposed TOD at 3401 N. Southport Avenue as far as when development would take place.  Per the Alderman, the developers still need to go through the planning commission and zoning committee, and then once approved, construction could start later in 2015 or early 2016 (update, we are hearing now 2017).  Galleria Liquors would be coming back as a tenant, but it is unlikely that Rise Sushi will be (they are looking for a new location around Southport however). 

From May\’s WLVN meeting, the group voted yes (27-18) in recommending the Southport TOD mixed-use building at 3401-09 N. Southport. See the floor plans below, and more detailed designs can be found at this link.

Visiting Lakeview\'s Lincoln Hub

The \”Lincoln Hub\” is located in Chicago\’s Lakeview neighborhood at the intersection of Wellington, Lincoln and Southport Avenue. It is almost complete, and we took a visit there on Memorial Day.

Let\’s hear your thoughts in the comments.
