The interior of Schoolyard Tavern is completely gutted, and it looks like it’s suffering the same fate as Southport Lanes
Currently, the interior of Schoolyard Tavern is completely gutted and a dismantle of some-sort is underway. The bar and backroom are both completely ripped out, along with all tables/chairs and other items that were once installed. We’ve reached out to Schoolyard Tavern after their final closing last October on what the current status is with the business, but have yet to hear back. No more website, however Facebook and Twitter are still up.
A website, Facebook page and Instagram page has been set up for Aura Candle Bar at 3338 N. Southport, former home of The Homestead Group. Information is also listed on the Chamber of Commerce website as well. More to come soon.
Whether you are new to the area or a long-time resident, one thing is for certain: nothing is permanent except change. So if you can\’t keep up with all of the changes happening to Chicago’s Southport Corridor, don\’t worry, we\’ve got you covered.
We have heard these rumors for awhile, and today, the Lakeview Chamber also reported that Chipotle is eyeing a location south of Addison on Southport in the heart of the Southport Corridor. Would you welcome them to Southport?
Great article from RE Journals.com. L3 Capital LLC is heavily invested in urban retail. Just in the Southport corridor of Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood — one of the city’s busiest — LC Capital has invested $20 million in retail projects dotting a two-block stretch. There’s a reason why L3 is so interested in urban retail; the demographics and foot traffic that come with it. “This is an exciting space for us,” said Greg Schott, principal at L3. “The Southport corridor is an active one in Chicago. It’s taken on its own character as a place to buy quality, eclectic fashion. That’s really given the area an identity.” See more at: http://www.rejournals.com/2013/08/29/chicagos-l3-capital-believes-in-the-power-of-urban-retail/#sthash.2upwTHgw.dpuf
