EVERYWHERE: The first round of Curbed Cup 2010, the Neighborhood of the Year tournament, is almost in the books, and the results have been rather unpredictable. Uptown sent River North packing; the South Loop beat out Lincoln Park; and Lincoln Square trounced Bridgeport. Voting is now open for West Town vs. Logan Square.
UPTOWN: On Monday evening, developer Sedgwick Properties resumed talks with neighborhood residents over the proposed Lake View Station development. If approved, the development would include three condo and apartment towers of 20 to 45 floors.
