Nothing too exciting, but a new 4 story with retail going up on Webster just west of Racine. I believe they guy who owns @ properties is behind this one.

https://chicagodata.carto.com/viz/29...68f/public_map


We all know about downtown and some other north side areas gaining population, but I think what is interesting here is that all community areas from south loop down to Hyde Park between the lake
and I-90 gained population except Washington Park. Washington Park lost only 70 people which isn't as bad as some other areas on the south side. Also interesting to note is that Greater Grand Crossing and Chatham were estimated to have gained people. It shows that Bridgeport lost 38 people - my guess is that the data that comes out in 3 weeks will have it in the positive. My guess is also that areas like Englewood will see continued losses and places like Logan Square will see larger gains. I'm hoping a few of the light red spots here will turn into at least light blue in a few weeks.

Now, with that being said, there is a caveat. I had contacted the US Census many months ago because one census tract in the Loop was only estimated to have grown by 5 people even though there were new apartment complexes built there. If you compared against the 2010 ACS, it said the tract grew very well, but if you compared against the 2010 census, it was only 5 people. What they had told me is that you actually should NOT be comparing the decennial census to the American Community Survey. You should only compare ACS to ACS. They said they do not recalibrate their results to what the census says. I did anyway since it's the only data and I didn't want to use 2010 ACS, but they actually said you should not be doing it. So all of the publicans that are saying X city gained/lost Y people since 2010 - the Census actually does not agree with them even comparing, but they're pretty quiet about it.

Anyway, interesting nonetheless and I can't wait for the data to come out 3 weeks from now.
This is awesome, great work!

Haha, could be on December 8th if they have everything. I bet i'll have it on the 9th unless I'm very very busy



I actually have a lot more maps that are more interesting - education, income, etc. Just can't share them with anyone, but it shows some really awesome things like the education and income levels really expanding (increasing) on the south side in many areas since 1990. There's been a huge explosion of this stuff in the city since 1990.

I will be shocked and elated if they actually use laid brick and make that quoining and cornice.

1) El Cubano Meats building at 914 W Fulton Market sold on 10/21 for $14.55M. Crains reported in mid to late April they were looking to sell. Not terrible since they bought the building in 2000 for $1.55M

2) Art Deco church in East Village on Ashland (1056 N Ashland - Ashland and Thomas) got a building permit to make a 5 story addition to the existing church for 34 units and only 8 parking spaces.

^^^ Fun fact:

The developer, architect, and contractor as well as all the neighbors assumed that the church in question was, well, a solid brick church. Once they started demolition it became apparent that the walls are actually super thick 2X8 frame with only a veneer of brick. This resulted in a total change of plans from a Steel frame supported facadectomy to a systematic rebuild of the wall from the inside replacing the old framing with CMU block.

Chanel is leaving its first floor space on Michigan Ave at the Drake to a new, 2 story space on Oak st, across the street from Del Friscos.

So I'm a bit confused, but also happy, about this one. There's a building permit issued today for an 8 story hotel's foundatiion at 530 N LaSalle. That is the vacant lot just to the east of the Midas on the NW corner of LaSalle & Grand. I have no idea what this is (couldn't find it either). This is not the hotel at Hubbard & LaSalle (which is also taller). Current site

https://www.google.com/maps/place/la...fe85ae!6m1!1e1

Anyone remember anything about this one?

^ Nice catch. I don't remember anything, but that's a huge improvement over a vacant lot. 8 stories is a bit short but some humanly scaled buildings downtown are not a bad thing

Yeah. I can't find anything about it. The owner listed is some LLC from Merrillville, IN with no results online and I can't find anything on the architect's website (I think it's DLR). 8 stories is not huge, but I think the city needs more buildings in that height in some areas. It's about the same or 1 story higher than the building right to the north of it so at least it might fit in with the scale.

Interesting. White Lodging, a hotel development and management firm, is based in Merrillville, Indiana. I wonder if it is related.

At one time the owner of Cafe Iberico had proposed a hotel at that site. I don't know if it's still that or something new. Given the small scale, it wouldn't surprise me if it was him resurrecting his hotel idea.

It's them. Nice catch. Just looked at the address and it matches up. They are the ones who run Aloft River North, Courtyard Mag Mile, Fairfield River North, etc. The company name on the permit is Choxy LLC - wonder if that has anything to do with the name of the hotel.

That's pretty interesting. Anywhere online with that? Had never heard it before.
