Caught these today (June 30) walking the neighborhood. Looks like half of the old patio behind Chicago Firehouse Restaurant is being turned into a possibly 2-story addition.
I can't seem to find any official news anywhere though on timelines/goals/etc.
It does look like they're expanding backwards. We wonder if this might be indoor/outdoor usage - which would be great.
Regarding timing, we heard from a reader that December 2016 or January of 2017 seems more feasible for the buildout to be done.
Another reader sent us some pics they took looking inside:
Good to see the progress!
