And now the latest from Curbed Chicago, covering everything you need to know about the city's neighborhoods and real estate.
LINCOLN PARK—On Wednesday, DePaul University held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new $69-million theater building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli (the same firm that designed the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur).
UPTOWN—A community meeting for the planned Lake View Station mega-development is set for next week. The developer tells Curbed that he plans to tear down the existing buildings by early fall, and he hopes to begin building by the end of the year.
WEST ROGERS PARK—Curbed paid a visit to Devon and took some photos of the eye-popping parking structure at Rockwell and Devon. The garage is now open for business, but the apartments and commercial space aren't finished.
HUMBOLDT PARK—The 140-year-old church at the corner of Rockwell and Cortez, a favorite among folks who like church conversions, finally sold over the weekend for $600,000 — $370K below the original list price.
