Last night, we stopped by “License to Thrill,” a party thrown by Ranquist Development and JODI Development to showcase Urban Sandbox. We reported previously that this development, at 1611 N Wolcott, has eight single-family homes, but the Web site for the project now says it comprises eight condos and five single-family homes.
The event was held at 1748 N Winchester, in a house that looked a lot like the modern structures Ranquist and JODI are building at Urban Sandbox. Tables were set up for drinks, food and games. One was manned by representatives of Kids Club, a nonprofit devoted to helping inner-city kids. Partygoers could make donations if they so chose.
