Two short updates on stories we’ve discussed recently:
- Ald. Joe Moore will support a zoning change that will allow construction of mixed-use development at 1557 – 1561 W Howard St in Rogers Park, site of the suddenly crumbling Wisdom Bridge Theater. The project’s revised design (above) sparked a lively discussion among Yo commenters in late April.
- Ravenswood Station, a $50-million commercial development proposed for the Sears parking lot near Lawrence Avenue and the Metra tracks in Ravenswood, won the approval of residents at a community meeting yesterday by a vote of 100 to four. Eric Rojas of Prudential Rubloff has kept up with this proposal for years and offered some observations on its latest changes through his blog and the comments section of this YoChicago post.
