Taco Bell’s Replacement on Addison includes Planet Granite Climbing Gym

Here are the latest renderings of what will be replacing Wrigleyville’s Taco Bell at 1111 W. Addison Street. The first level will include street retail to be determined, and according to Tom Tunney’s website and renderings, Planet Granite Climbing Gym based in California will occupy the 2nd and 3rd floors.

Here are the latest renderings along with Planet Granite’s mission statement:

“Planet Granite has been in business in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1994. We have 4 clubs, 3 in the Bay Area and one in Portland, Oregon. The climbing gyms offer climbing, yoga and the usual features of a regular heath club. At Planet Granite the best climbers in the country train for far away expeditions and newcomers to the sport can learn in a comfortable and safe environment. Being one of the first companies to open and operate indoor rock climbing facilities, we have brought climbing to the mainstream. Climbing keeps people fit and healthy and is inherently social – you have time to chat to the people around you between routes. We are fanatical about creating community and continuously host presentations by world class climbers, climbing movie nights, competitions, climb-a-thon fundraisers for various charities, “meet a new climbing partner” nights and a number of other events to bring people together. We are a major part of our member’s social life and help create strong communities in the places that we operate. In 2017 we merged with Earth Treks, a similar operator of climbing gyms in the Washington DC , and Denver, CO areas with the intention of growing our company by bringing our climbing offering and mission to new communities. We feel the Wrigley Field are is a perfect fit.”
