^ For that lowered expanse of concrete on the eastern side of the river bend in that last shot, is there any plan to add landscaping to make it part of the river walk?

Lincoln Square Sears Spared Demolition; Reuse Proposed As Housing, Retail
Patty Wetli - July 25, 2016 - DNAInfo

LINCOLN SQUARE — Developers are planning a mixed-use reuse of the Lawrence Avenue Sears store, retaining the facade of the 90-year-old building while gutting the interior to accommodate 40 housing units and ground-floor retail.

A proposal obtained from the 47th Ward office shows that West Loop-based Springbank Real Estate Group, which specializes in transit-oriented developments, has designs on the Sears building at 1900 W. Lawrence Ave.

Totally agree. I was at the west lakeview neighbors meeting recently and some grumpy lady actually said "have we proven that TOD works? Shouldn't we wait before always approving these to see if people will actually move in?" I nearly spit out my beer in disbelief that someone would ask that. Kind of got a chuckle from the crowd.

I suppose occupancy is not really a public policy concern, but do we have real, hard evidence that TOD occupants own fewer vehicles or drive fewer miles? The minimum parking rules we're so anxious to sweep away were, after all, put in place for a reason.

The fact that they are having no problem leasing up pretty quickly is good evidence.

Not sure, beyond that, why one would believe there should be a burden of proof laid down on car-lite buildings. If the market "approves" of it, then you have your answer.

It's been awhile since I've posted—very busy lately. I've just been reminded why you are so unpopular here.

Permit parking is a lot more widespread than it was in the era of the 4+1 parking hysteria.

The 1611 W Division building has been fully leased despite the fact that virtually all surrounding blocks are permitted, and building residents are ineligible. If those residents own cars, they are walking many blocks to find street parking. The more likely explanation is that the residents just don't own cars, or at least don't use cars enough to need them in nearby parking places.

The other TODs are really too new to show results.

The lack of parking in this city is issue #1. All parking lots in this city should be vigorously defended, by legal means, if necessary.
