Webster Square Saga Continues; Plans Tweaked Again

New, 9 comments

Just three short months after the City Council signed off on Sandz Development's plan to redevelop Lincoln Park Hospital, the development is getting another round of changes. Mayor Emanuel brokered a deal yesterday between Sandz and 43rd Ward Ald. Michelle Smith, resulting in some subtle changes to the plan. Now, 50,000 square feet of office space (out of a total 95,000) on the top floors of the building on Geneva will become apartments; a 40-unit building on Grant Place will become eight rowhouses; and delivery trucks for the grocery store will be banned from Webster. This probably won't be the last word on Webster Square — as Dennis Rodkin noted a couple months ago, a variation of this battle has been going on for some 27 years.
