7303 N Damen Commercial Space.


              This commercial space is currently a vanilla box. This would be a great location for coffee shop  restaurant or bar. Every section of Rogers Park should have an unofficial community center which nowadays is one of the three (Act One Cafe/Heartland Cafe/Charmers Cafe). This particular area possesses none of these types of businesses. Damen/Rogers/Chase is an emerging area. And for it to emerge its commercial spaces need decent businesses. 

             We see the typical response to the improvement of commercial space. $wine is commonly etched or  written on buildings in response to the rehab of a long neglected building. This building never had a red X on it but the one next to it did. (That picture of the $wine is a close up of the outside black trim.) At press time there was some purple scribbling on one of the windows. Damned if you do and damned if you don't. (Well according to DNAinfo it is Damn & Rogers.) If you don't fix a building up you may get a red X, fix it up too much you get marked with a $wine.
