Nice, that Hubbard St Dance building is starting to become an eyesore as it hasn't been maintained. It'll be a shame to lose that awesome Krueck + Sexton design though, especially for a VERY trad, red brick condo building. That said, their traditional design is better than most and I like the midrise scale of the new building.

Now if only we could get some decent architecture along with decent development! That building at Halsted/Archer with the curved balconies is aging about as good as a banana left on the counter for 3 months

If I had the capital, I would buy up properties along this stretch of Clark. It will look very different in 5-10 years. It is extremely underdeveloped for its proximity to Andersonville and Lakeview.

Is this the first Orange Line TOD? Hard to believe but it might be true

Based on the article there is a lot of NIMBYism

But I think Cappleman isn’t to bad

Cappleman was very supportive for a recent zoning project we applied for with our client. He was thoughtful, rational and tried very hard to appease everyone. The neighboring condo associations were abhorrent, full of entitled, hypocritical people. "This project would be great, but not next to my building, because we'd potentially losing one hour of sunlight during summer evenings." That was a real comment during one of the meetings, even after we had created multiple sun studies showing that their fear was totally unwarranted.

Best Western Parking Garage next to the Treasure Island Redevelopment on Broadway:
Quote:
Rebel Hospitality is proposing to redevelop the property with a 167-key hotel with 61 parking spaces. The property was formerly a two-story parking garage, that was recently demolished.

The hotel is proposed with seven stories, for a maximum building height of 72 feet. The upper three floors are set back from the front elevation along Broadway for a total of 14 feet at the top level. The ground floor consists of lobby space and approximately 4,800 square feet of retail/restaurant space along the Broadway frontage. Parking is located behind the lobby and retail/restaurant areas and will not be visible from the street. Parking and loading will be accessed from a drive on the north end of the property, which will be shared with the Optima mixed-use development directly to the north.

The second floor will consist of hotel amenities such as fitness center and meeting space, along with hotel back-of-house areas. An outdoor landscaped garden court is also located on the second floor.

The hotel rooms are located on floors 3 through 7. Private terraces are included for some of the rooms on the 5th through 7th floors.

The proposed hotel will also expand and share in the courtyard that is currently located in front of the Best Western Hotel at 3434 N. Broadway, directly south. The Best Western is also operated by Rebel Hospitality.

A Type 1 zoning amendment from the current B3-2 to B3-3 will be sought. If the rezoning is approved, a special use for the hotel use will also be required.

Funny, I'm putting a 12 unit under contract a few blocks from there. That area is popping off, they are about to start the renovation of a big flatiron right there too. Also one of the CMD buildings is in the middle of a huge gut rehab.

I can see this being an option for Wrigley visitors and Northalsted (nee Boystown) visitors alike.

Speaking of the Treasure Island parcel, there is a crane on site. Didn't get a picture but it's up.

A three story building replacing a 2 story building.

Geoffrey Baer will have a new program showing Chicago by air very soon on WTTW. Did anybody else see the commercial for that? Can’t wait for that to come out

I remember when that flatiron was up for sale. I considered checking it out.

But, you know, it’s not easy being a real estate developer as a side gig. Really sucks the time away from family!

If this area is beginning to pop, I will be taking a closer look. Biggest problem is that there is just so much suburban crap around there. Doesn’t have that hip, walkable vibe that other up and coming areas (Pilsen, Avondale, etc) have

It's not that bad. Archer is a lost cause until they tame the traffic sewer, but 35th has a ton of potential to grow hip businesses and could be very walkable. The problem is zoning, the properties along 35th are zoned RS-3 so almost every storefront there is nonconforming.

And they need to do something about the asphalt plant before that area can really take off...

Archer is not worse than Milwaukee Ave between Wabansia and California was before the TOD boom. That area was a brownfield shithole just ten years ago. McKinnley has a gigantic park and largest warehouse stock in the city. The appealing thing to me is the CMD, if that is redeveloped then the whole area becomes wild. Also the Chinese are slapping up new developments everywhere.

Development along that stretch had decades of momentum behind it coming at it from both sides. I don't see Archer as totally analogous.
