Two SRO Hotels in Lakeview Close

Two single-room occupancy hotels in Lakeview, Sheffield House Hotel, at 3834 N. Sheffield, and the Belair Hotel, 424 W. Diversey, have been sold and closed, leaving hundreds of tenants scrambling for places to live, the Windy City Times reports. Neither building has been condemned, but tenants have been served with notices to vacate, which Ald. Tom Tunney speculates were "not exactly legal." An estimated 20-40 tenants are still living on Sheffield House, and they can't be evicted without a court order. [Windy City Times]
