Bigger and Taller Buildings to Come
Quite a few of you e-mailed me wanting to see a closer look at the building. jeff-0 moaned in the comments section wanting a better peak because he didn't get his lazy ass to the meeting.
So, as the hot new media outlet for Rogers Park, here is the exclusive concept drawings for 7015 North Sheridan Road - The "Starter high-rise," as taken from the Hell Hole's secret spy cam, deep inside the meeting room.
This 79 foot high building offers what one consultant up front said was, "Ms. Abels' retirement fund."
Joe seemed to think that the crowd was "split" on the project.
Once again, Joe was NOT paying attention!
Even Katie Hogan told them to reject the plan, posted by Ann Sullivan at 10:04 AM today.
If Alderman Moore thought the crowd was 50/50, indeed he must have fell asleep during the meeting.
So, why do I call this the "The Starter high-rise?"
Make no mistake, Connie Abels is testing the waters on the Lakefront Protection Ordinance, while other bigger shots wait in the wings. Once they find Alderman Moore's tolerance for re-zoning, the paid informercial/community meetings won't be far behind.
And I'm not talking the small fishes like the Aronson's, Coe's and Block's.
I'm talking big fish like Loyola University, McHughes, Whitman Corp, Pritzker's and Wirtz's - who will then come in and build 20-30 and 40 story high-rises - making Connie Abels small time little 79 foot high-rise look really like a poor retirement home.
