A reader recently spotted the demolition of two storefronts on Irving Park Road between Sheridan and Fremont. Could the demo indicate that something new is on the way, or just a way for the property owner to pay lower taxes? Here's what the reader had to say about the scene:

This is the scene right behind my apartment. Two derelict storefronts on the south side of Irving Park right near Sheridan (949 W Irving Park according to Google Maps) were quite suddenly demolished on Saturday. There are no signs of any kind posted, and no way to know if something new is coming up or what.
