Don't know if anyone else caught it, but the two-story future home to Roots Pizza in Printers Row (Polk/Dearborn/Federal)officially landed its permit on 6/30.

i noticed that construction is underway on the old auto repair shop at the SE corner of ashland/lawrence.

after some online digging, i found the rendering below, does anyone know if this is still the current plan/design?

now all we have to do is get rid of the gas stations on the NE & NW corners and we'll have ourselves a proper major street intersection once again.

The area is a bit weird and quite frankly one of my least favorite in the entire city. It needs all the help it can get. My friend lives near there in the old converted produce market buildings and his place is nice, but the area leaves a lot to be desired. Hopefully projects like this can make it a tiny bit better.
Right on schedule, ATT was on site this morning at 15th/Blue Island doing utility work and landscape crews are ripping out the trees.

FLATS doesn't mess around!

1700 N Western Ave got a new construction building permit issued yesterday. This is going to be 5 stories with 60 units, 29 parking spaces, and ground floor retail. It replaces a used car dealership and lot. Across the street is the new-ish Bucktown Gateway which also replaced something similar. This is just a few blocks south of the 606 - a quarter mile south of the Western Blue Line stop only.

Marcello’s Father And Son Restaurant in Logan Square, which is across from the Mega Mall redevelopment is closing after 72 years. The owner says he's having trouble keeping up with repairs to the building. It has a sizable surface parking lot. Great redevelopment opportunity. Zoned C2-2.

Any bets on a developer swooping in and replacing it with some 4-8 story mixed use development?
