New construction building permit issued yesterday for the parking lot on the SW corner of Laflin and Monroe across from Skinner Park. In total, 4 stories and 51 units with 51 parking spaces (garage parking). This is directly adjacent north of another building on Laflin with 52 units. Up a block and around the corner on Madison (and Laflin) is going another building with 32 units and retail on a vacant lot.

Always good to see vacant lots disappear in these areas (even if some of the architecture like this one is not great).

It's much easier to do from an actual computer rather than a phone. If you click on Share, you have tabbed options for format, and one of the formats it gives you is BBCode. From that you can cut and paste the whole BBCode text. Easy as pie.

Why is this forum so old looking like something from 2006, it runs really poorly for me. I don't think it has been updated since I started using it in 2008 or so. On another forum I'm on it's really fast and runs great, you can drag and drop photos from your desktop into the post directly.

It's a long story, Baronvonellis. Well, essentially it comes down to the fact that the founder(s) of this site basically divested themselves of it quite a while back, and SSP truly is a relic of a past generation of software. Even I, as a long-time moderator, really don't know if and when the software is ever going to be upgraded.

^ Thanks for sharing. So much building. 800 W Lake in the highrise thread is a beauty. What a boom and what a time to be alive!

Hopefully that Milwaukee Ave proposal does right by its corner location and does something interesting. No parking is nice, that’s a small lot.

Great to see more infill up on Lawrence.

The Chicago forumers here could of course migrate to a new or different forum but migrating all the existing data to another forum is unlikely since the people who could do that are all MIA. It would be a lot of work to set up and the Chicago forumers here would pretty much all need to agree to move there.

As this forum continues to get more and more outdated we may some day be motivated enough to pull the trigger.

Although I would have preferred another 800ft+ skyscraper next to OBP, that park looks good. I hope the neighborhood enjoys it.

There's a parking garage adjacent to OBP that's ripe for redevelopment, so you may yet get your wish.

I was at Navy Pier yesterday with some out of town guests.

Not only was it jam packed, but I was impressed with how much less tacky it appears since the renovation. It will always be a tourist trap, but it’s definitely more tasteful now.

I think that the hotel going up there will do very well.

Not sure how well the retail will do right now, but perhaps a good investment for the future
