Rise Sushi and Galleria Liquors to close in July, TOD construction to start late summer at 3401 N. Southport

As you may recall, this transit oriented development approved in 2015 with deliveries planned for Q1 2020. Planning had started back in 2014, and this new development will reside on what is now Galleria Liquors and Rise Sushi. At the time this development was first announced, Galleria Liquors is slated to return to this site, while Rise Sushi was not. Rise Sushi may relocate nearby (hopefully), and their sister restaurant, Shine on Webster in Lincoln Park will remain. You can read more about this development from Tom Tunney’s website, and see the listing here.

Summer 2015 on Chicago’s Southport Corridor

The rain has finally stopped long enough for us to get our annual photos of the Southport Corridor during summertime. Some of these view will look quite different next summer with the addition of SoulCycle and J. Crew coming, along with the proposed Southport TOD.

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.
