As the Belmont and Clark intersection continues to be reshaped by the construction of a new eight-story transit-oriented development, the vision for the now-closed Alley store at 3228 N. Clark Street is getting clearer. The proposal offers new, more detailed renderings of the seven-story building, which is looking to bring 23 residences and 2,500-square-feet of retail to the intersection. And while longtime retail anchor The Alley has closed and moved on, the new development will preserve and reincorporate the building's historic facade. However, The Alley's famous gargoyles (which were not an original detail in the building's facade) that hung over the entrance of the building don't make an appearance in the renderings.
