WEST LOOP—Curbed dropped by the 7th annual Guerrilla Truck Show on Tuesday evening, an event where designers show their wares in the back of moving trucks. Click through for the photo gallery and recap.
GLENCOE—A midcentury home (which we've learned was the childhood home of actor Fred Savage) has been radically transformed into a modern mansion in Glencoe. It's now on the market for $2.59 million.
SOUTH LOOP—Roosevelt Collection, that suburban-style mixed-use development on Roosevelt Road, has been acquired by a new development team that includes ex-hoops star Magic Johnson. Their first order of business: Demolishing those empty buildings in the middle of the plaza.
LAKEVIEW—Interior designer Douglas Levine's favorite color is white, and it shows in this 2BD condo that he put up for sale this week. The Miesian unit is priced at $525,000.
