Great image of the block between Armitage, Milwaukee, Western, and the L:

It's fully built-out now with infill. Can also see the new Pennycuff apartments. New seating area atop Margie's is for the new Marz brewery and taproom, I believe.

Marz moved from Bridgeport? I gave an Astronomy-on-Tap talk there once and it was a pretty cool location.

No they're just opening up a satellite taproom/brewery:

Dang, I wish I would have attended that! That sounds cool.

And yeah, it's a cool place. I went there for the first time this summer. Finally visited that quarry-turned-park, too (Palmisano?). It's got some good height for a Chicago park; you get a great view of the skyline from there.

No kidding. I'd be all over that.

Clearly we need to do a better job at marketing, but Astronomy on Tap (under normal circumstances) happens in principle (but not in practice) every month, with alternating Northwestern/UChicago speakers.

I’m sooo bummed about the stalling of the Uptown Theatre rehab, though.

I was just thinking about the theatre today... irritated about the big announcement 2.5 years ago that it was going to be rehabbed!... only for it to be another false start due to the need for more money. And now COVID screwing things up. *sigh*

But I'm glad to see that ugly City Sports building finally being destroyed! Very much an eyesore, especially being so close to rapid transit.

The vacant lot on the far right hand side of the photo is slated to be a 4-story apartment building. It was previously a drive through MB Bank that was unused for about 4 years before being bulldozed a few months back. Armitage & Western intersection. I pushed the alderman for higher density but the builder is not asking for a zoning change.

Seems like a missed opportunity that we're not seeing more 8-12 story proposals near the Division, Damen, and Western blue line stops.

So, it looks like Tommy Gun's Garage dinner theater at 2114 S Wabash isn't opening back up due to the pandemic dragging out too long. This is across the street from Aspire, new 24 story residential high rise. Bets on 2114 S Wabash and its parking lot being sold to a developer?

Other notable current land for sale:
* 1 story retail building + surface parking lot at 424-28 S Wabash: $7.2M - Being sold as a redevelopment opportunity. https://www.google.com/maps/@41.8761...7i16384!8i8192

* Vacant lot at 863 N Orleans near NEXT and Niche 905 apartments in Cabrini Green. $4.6M. Apparently this is already approved for a 6 story office/retail building
https://www.google.com/maps/@41.8982...7i16384!8i8192

* Surface lot site at 1050 N Kingsbury at the river. Close to Morton Salt, Lincoln Yards, etc. Sold as redevelopment project:
