Any idea what is going in on the southwest side of the Clark and Archer intersection, just east of the Metra? A fence has been up for a couple weeks and it looks like some sort of excavation.
Another reader did some more digging and found this:
Over the past week it looks like actual activity is happening in the Southwest corner of Archer and Clark right next to the Metra tracks. A sign had been up for a while talking about a retail project but this is the first hint of progress on it. I found this on the internet (from Chicago Architecture back in mid-2015).
Unfortunately we don't have much more information and this looks plausible in our minds.
If you're a history buff you may recall that there was a "beautiful" hotel planned for a lot right around here (see Sloopin post from 2009). That ain't happening obviously.
Anyway, does anyone know anything else about this?
