A little more recently:

2) What will replace St. Stephenson Church at 1319 S Ashland next to Addams/Medill Park? It will be a 5 story, 76'7" tall office/retail building. Architect is BauerLatoza Studio.

3) South side of Irving Park Road between Kenneth and Kilbourn (4435-71 W Irving Park Rd). Buildings there to be replaced by a brand new 4 story, 58'6" building for Northwestern Medical with 348 parking spaces both below grade and above grade. The above grade portion doesn't look very big but would be next to Kilbourn. I think neighbors successfully got this from 5 to 4 stories. However, it's still nearly 60 feet tall. It would include medical offices, immediate care clinic, and ground floor retail

I think some of this was torn down already:
https://www.google.com/maps/place/44...!4d-87.7395803

Should look something like this:


4) 4173-79 W Belmont Ave - Build a new 38'8" building with 17 units and 17 parking spaces. Replaces some old unimproved buildings. This is across the street from Noah Properties' proposed The Avondale 52 townhomes and 15 condos (https://www.noahchicago.com/theavondale). What's the status of that anyway?

The properties in question:
https://www.google.com/maps/place/41...!4d-87.7324022
Excellent news. Those buildings are dilapidated and basically useless at this point. Glad to see Belmont Gardens/West Avondale/My Neighborhood getting some development love!

Also, it's good to see some Northwestern clinics/offices heading northwest. It will make things much easier for patients well away from the Loop.

Yeah, because there were no doctors offices out there prior to Northwestern coming in to "save the day!"

How much do you want to bet that they thought 4 stories = 40 feet instead of nearly 60?

As someone who lives in the neighborhood, which outpatient alternatives are you referring to?

Northwestern has said:
Quote:
Data showed patients in the area were heading to Northwestern’s Streeterville campus for medical procedures that could instead be performed at the proposed building on Irving Park Road in the future.

They did get all of the parking pushed underground, which is something I see people wish for all the time on this board. Perhaps we should celebrate that type of constructive community feedback instead of mocking it.

Another proposal. This time for 1628-30 N Wells St, almost next door to Second City. This calls to tear down the current old 3 story building on site, as well as the small surface lot to the north of it, and replace it with a new 7 story building with 48 residential units and ground floor retail. Building height will be 76'6" and there will be no provided parking. This will completely abut the 32 story high rise next door and won't have alley space there. Architect is Kennedy Mann, who looks like they've done some interesting designs here and there. Developer is North Park Ventures.

Kind of sucks to lose that old building. More currently:
https://www.google.com/maps/place/16...!4d-87.6350265

--
ALSO, the "Jefferson Park Cultural District" is materializing a little bit. There is a zoning application up to expand the Ed Paschke Art Center by building a new 55 foot tall addition at 5374 W Lawrence (behind the art center so to speak). It sounds like they want to put 2 more museums there - the Chicago Art Center and the National Veterans Art Museum which would relocated from 4041 N Milwaukee Ave. Plans also call for a new cafe inside of the 135 year old building on Long across from Ed Paschke Art Center.

Questions, is all I'm sayin'.

Who the hell said that? I was referring to patients within the Northwestern system, not the general public. Sheesh!

Yes... sketchy indeed. My pet conspiracy theory is it has something to do with a downtown casino.

What's really a shame is that 1628 N Wells is a handsome late 19th century commercial building that just so happens to be about surrounded by mid-20th century buildings, or else it would be in the Old Town Triangle Landmark District (as it should be)

That does suck. Old town won't be old town if they keep knocking these down. Wish they could replace the gated community next door instead.

No way, Concord Lane is awesome. It's like a streetscape from London or Philadelphia or something. No reason you can't put a 7-story building at the end of it. Just a really simple brick box would be enough, so long as the brick is a nice color/texture. Plus it would help mask the enormous blank wall on the tower next door.
