Pictures from last week Wednesday (8/21) of construction at the Loyola "L" stop. Bruno's; the hold out on Sheridan has been included in a Loyola approved rendering.
Homogenization of style, owners, and outlook make for a dull neighborhood, college and life. But that is just what Loyola University has been trying to do with their Rogers Park campus.
The needless destruction of the buildings at Albion and Sheridan and many other buildings in the area has created a more boring, monochromatic area. Thank god Bruno's refused to leave. One of the few liquor store slash bars left on the north side of Chicago and in a beautiful building on top of that.
We are glad that Loyola is doing well and reinvesting in the area with their and our money (gifted TIF tax dollars). But they can't have it all their way (thankfully).
