I wanted to makes sure that everyone is aware of a proposal for a new Walgreens at Lawrence and Kimball. The full plans can be found here:
Although a new business is good news for the 'hood, there are issues with this. The short version is they want to tear down the existing building (the Payless) and build a new one, offset from the street, with a parking lot on the corner. Not only will this be ugly, it will increase traffic which is a safety concern on that corner.
Includes professional topics, as well as thoughts about Chicago politics. I also keep a blog on Medium that includes these, as well as more personal posts.
