^^^ That building was designed for a vertical addition. It's doubtful that the original architects and engineers designed it for a setback with more height to the back. So I don't think what you are suggesting would have been possible without serious modifications to the original structure.

Permit was issued on Monday to redevelop the former Sears on Lawrence (1900 W Lawrence & Wolcott) to add another floor onto it, with ground floor retail, and 59 total units with 44 parking spots.

^ cool! Thanks for the update.

60 new units will help offset some of the unit loss from all of the recent 2-flat deconversions in Lincoln Square.

TimeLine Theatre Selects Architect For New Location On Broadway

Quote:
"TimeLine announced in December 2018 that it had purchased property in Uptown—encompassing a five-story, 45,500-square-foot warehouse building plus a vacant lot near the corner of Broadway and Argyle—to be the site of its new home. Preliminary plans feature two intimate and flexible black box theatres seating up to 250 and 150 audience members, respectively.

^ as a timeline subscriber for the past 7 years, i'm SOOOOOO excited for this project.

it's beyond perfect that this theater company, whose whole mission is to produce plays set in history to inform the present, has chosen to rehab this old historical structure into their new home.

and another good shot in the arm for the uptown entertainment district.

it's ALL win!

Nice! I love that building. I wish we had more buildings on that scale on Broadway nearby.

^ With the 710 apartments being delivered by Cedar Street / Flats, as well, that's going to be a much busier intersection in a couple of years.

they need to do a road diet to the north of foster. fully protected bike lane, streetscaping, better ped crossings etc. That would help. Aside from that, hopefully some of those strip malls start getting redeveloped after the red line project is finished.

I haven't heard anything about the Double Door in months. Someone familiar with the matter told me the lease wasn't even signed when Cappleman made the announcement ...

I also wonder how the Uptown Theater is going. Last article I read a couple months ago said they still need $40MM.

West Loop condo project that drew NIMBY complaints that led Ald Burnett to walk out of a community meeting got approved:

Once LL moves on, Burnett for Mayor?

have always been skeptical of the uptown theater rehab and cappleman is a clown, so no surprise about the double door

This should probably be moved to the politics thread but I know Walter quite well... think he would be a very good Mayor. I have seen lots of growth out of him through the years and think he has intellect and gravitas to be a serious threat should he decide to run / once LL leaves office that is.

Another guy that I know really well is Brookins. He has not been in the news much lately but he is relative juggernaut on the far south side. He is another guy that I have seen substantial growth from through the years / could possibly make a run at Mayor down the road.

He's also just funny as hell. Burnett is always cracking me up.

Agreed, he’s super funny.

Isn’t he an ex-con though? I’ve heard rumblings of mafia ties? Can’t imagine those aspects faring well in a city-wide election.
