11 Story Development Heads to Wicker Park's Ashland & Division

We realize that people don't see information at exactly the time we publish it. So for important projects like this one, we like to provide updates along the way. The "Pizza Hut" site as it's called at the corner of Division Street and Ashland Avenue (1600 W. Division Street) has been vacant for almost 5 years after a failed attempt by Walgreens to develop the property. Purchased in 2011, however, now the space has big plans. A new development is being planned with the input of the community, the East Village Association and 1st Ward Alderman Moreno.

 

 

So...what's in the works?

An 11-story glass/metal building that will rival the The Coyote Building (North/Damen/Milwaukee) for icon status will include 1st floor commercial space, 2nd floor offices and 9 floors of residential rental units (100+ units). 

No parking will be provided onsite to residents of this building. An affidavit will be required by tenants which states tenants do not own cars and subsequently will not be eligible for permit/street parking.

PNC Bank and  Intelligentsia Coffee already have dibs on the commercial space. The East Village Association has provided an extensive overview of the project.

Living in this area all my life and seeing how fast it's growing and expending my concern is are we going to be pushed out? As I was reading this article I read that PNC Bank is interested in one of the commercial spots My opinion is am I the only one that sees a waste of time to have another bank in our neighborhood? I mean we have already four banks so close to each other even though they are of course different. But wouldn't it be nice to have other businesses come to our neighborhoods to bring more visitors and neighbors together? I like the fact that this neighborhood is expanding again bringing life to it again and I hope it becomes as fun as Clark street.

WELL ISN'T THIS JUST GREAT! NOW I LIVE IN LINCOLN PARK. JUST WHAT WE NEED APARTMENTS THAT ARE NOT AFFORDABLE TO THE WORKING CLASS, MIDDLE INCOME FAMILIES, A BIGGER POPULATION PROBLEM, NO PARKING AND MORE TRAFFIC TO DEAL WITH AND HIGHER PROPERTY TAXES. WHAT MORE CAN WE ASK FOR. SHAME ON YOU ALDERMAN MORENO, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING SUPPORTING THESE PROBLEMS? COULDN'T YOU HAVE PUT A PARK THERE?
