Happy Birthday Mr. President!

3 Aug

President Obama is coming to town tonight and its unclear what effects this will have on our commutes and road accesses. Some say it will be a nightmare while others think it will be a blip on the radar. Regardless, we wish the president a happy 50th from “Protect Sheridan Road!” (yes we know his real birthday is tomorrow)

In other news it appears the proposed 49 story building at Clark and Hubbard that was initially set to break ground in October is now looking at a September start time. Curbed Chicago reported on it earlier today. Although this massive building is miles and miles from Edgewater, it’s worth noting the eagerness of developers to get their projects underway. It also demonstrates a real or perceived demand for high-rise rentals.

Below is a recent development update photo from our neighbor, The Admiral and their current construction status. Enjoy your sunlight and vacant lots for now, the high rises are coming!
