It was about time the real estate world milked the White Sox 2005 World Series victory for all it was worth. In April, you’ll be able to buy a home at the new Dubin Residential development, The Lofts at Bridgeport Place.
Dubin informs us in a recent ad that the neighborhood is “the new place to be,” which must be quite amusing and a tad irritating for longtime residents and die-hard Sox fans. Of course, this isn’t the first loft or loft-like project to hit the Bridgeport market in recent times.
Here is an interesting perspective from a writer who believes that the Sox have been a barrier to the further development of Bridgeport and revitalization of the South Side.
Even Wikipedia has weighed in with some observations about the land surrounding U.S. Cellular Field.
What say you? Can we find some middle ground, or will Bridgeport become a South Side Wrigleyville?
