I think it should be called "ring of fire"

That's the nickname we used to give to a certain pork shoulder sandwich we'd eat at 3 am back in the old days after a night of drinking and partying. That sandwich was so damn spicy that next day when you went to the bathroom you'd experience a "ring of fire" in your......well you get the idea

This sculpture is great. The Chicago fire should make something like this their new logo. A "C" made of flames would be far better than their new lame logo.

Pretty incredible the team is even called Fire in the first place. Notice how they don't play the SF Quakes, New Orleans Floods or the Dallas Assassins?

Chicago embraces the great Chicago fire and how the city rebuilt itself and what it became in the aftermath like no other city and unfortunate event combination I can think of. Chicago even has a star on its flag commemorating it.

Actually, the bay area's MLS team is named the San Jose Earthquakes.

Re: the great fire. my great-great-great grandparents lost their home to the fire and lived with their young family in a literal shack cobbled together from fire debris until their home could be properly rebuilt. The story of their resilience is passed down as a point of pride from generation to generation in our family.

Thinking about what they went through, and how they survived it, helps put my family's current "struggles" into perspective, and gives me hope. Yeah, we currently have no income other than unemployment, but at least we have a home to call home in a city that isn't utterly decimated.

In fact, next year will mark the 150th anniversary of the great fire.

I don't know if i'm out of place but sorry about your struggles. You seem like a very solid and moral person. I am sure you will prevail.

2700 N Pine Grove: Looks like they are basically going to save some of the exterior and plop a midrise building on the rest of the site.

At least the exterior is being preserved. Otherwise that would be quite a loss

Sorry to read about your challenges. Indeed these are challenging times for everyone in one form or another. Business is booming for me but I am reticent to walk out of the door and I worry what I might bring home to my wife and 12 year old daughter every day. Money only goes so far. Peace of mind, happiness and good health I find to be far more important. Hang in there my friend. As someone else wrote, you are good man. For someone like you, good things will come with time, patience, perseverance and faith in God.

First building permit issued for 4410 N Clark, which will be a new 4 story, 25 unit with 13 parking spaces and first floor retail. Not sure, but I'd guess at least one of the buildings next to it is going to get demolished too (maybe both?). This is right near Montrose Ave - a half mile from the Brown Line stop and maybe around 3/4 mile to the Wilson Red Line stop.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/44...2!4d-87.666523

Architect is William Rodon Hornof of 2R/Z slash Vesta. Trying to find some renderings but cannot yet. Interestingly though I came across this from 2317 N Clark St, the former Walgreens. New development was approved by the council back in 2018. Not sure if he's the architect of this or not, but this looks pretty similar to what Chicago DPD tweeted back in 2018

Quite a few interesting infill projects on there. I dunno if we've seen those renderings for the Edgewater Hospital redevelopment before.

Not bad. Imagine if the entire tower was that saturated black.

The name of that building was changed 11 years ago. It's now Willis Tower.
