I was on my way to the train this morning and noticed a head poking out of the vacant commercial space on the ground floor of 1401 S State. Hadn't noticed any activity there at all since I've been in the neighborhood. Also noticed a building permit in the doorway. Description looked pretty bland and boring ("new offices"?) - I was hoping something more like Go Grocer or South Loop Market would be moving in (nothing more convenient than a nice convenience every other block). I did some amatuer sleuthing on the Department of Buildings website and pulled the permit info pasted below and even tried calling the contact number to see if I could find out more, but no luck. Seemed like a good excuse to email sloopin for the first time. Anyway, if anything interesting is going in, hope you do a post to let your readers know.
Does anyone have the scoop?
