  1. I find most of this sad. :(Small independent businesses are being replaced by national chain stores. The quaint neighborhood is turning into the Clybourn corridor. Is there nothing we can do to preserve the neighborhood? Guess not.


  2. Glad to see M2 Boutique & M4Men are still alive and strong! One of the last independent retailers which helped start the Southport Corridor charm. We can only hope this \”Corridor charm\” doesn't get lost by Corporate big box. And where are all these people supposed to park?


  3. 3819 N Southport is available for lease (Dec 2016).1250 sq ft retail/office space in brand new construction bldg on prestigious Southport Corridor.Vanilla box includes a 5 ton HVAC and ADA bathroom (already installed).Space is located on the ground floor, no steps. Easy street parking. Awesome neighborhood in high traffic / high viability area.
