Edgewater To Get a New Park?

New, 1 comment

Edgewater residents enjoy some of the best lakefront property in Chicago, but they're not satisfied with that. They want more inland green space, and they've identified a possible site: the old Edgewater Medical Center at 5700 N. Ashland Ave. that's been vacant for a decade. Ald. Patrick O'Connor says a condo building with ground-level retail would be a better use of the land. Sounds like that old medical center will continue to rot for the foreseeable future. [Trib]
