  1. We need buildings like this everywhere around the city!

  2. Couldn’t they just keep the historical building and give it a bump-up, rather than tear it down with unarticulated flat-pack-brick generica?

    • I agree it looks like a lost opportunity to reuse the existing structure, give the face a little TLC, and just expand it upwards.

      If you look at NYC Yimby, they do this all the time. Then turn a 2 story building into a 5 story or 12 story.

    I’m all for preservation and adaptive re-use. But you have to be smart about it and not just demand things that don’t make sense.

    The new building is going higher and also further back. Many vintage buildings, this one included, only take up the front 60% of the lot. Hence the prevalence of ADU’s behind vintage 2-3 flats.

    This is going from 1-residential and 1-commercial to 7 and 1 units respectively. A ‘Bump-up’ would potentially make sense if being converted to a SFH. But it’s a safe bet that some would view that negatively as well.

    Constructive criticism is great, but lets all try to be thoughtful about it.

    • Your comment is totally speculative and lacks any financial data to prove adaptive reuse wouldn’t be feasible. Do not simply imply that others are not being thoughtful just because you have a contrarian opinion.

  4. I’d personally rather see the density replacing the 7-Eleven or the Sherwin Williams store, or the gas station at Addison and Halsted rather than a historic structure with character

  5. The building at 3322 is already gone and has been for some time. It’s a shame, but this will be better than a hole in the ground full of garbage.
