    Very sad news about the 115th St. Metra station. It was neglected for years then got a fix-up a couple of years ago. Another bit of history lost to carelessless. Even if the guilty party is caught, it won’t undo the damage of that thoughtless moment.

    I didn’t see a link to this article from a couple days ago that I think is of interest. Proposed 58-unit building that will have 68 parking spaces and only 58 bike spots (and who knows if they’ll put the bike parking in a convenient spot) despite being a 10-minute walk from Clark/Division Red Line and a 151 bus stop right outside where the front door of this building will be.

    A lot of charming Metra stations on the Southside, sad to see one go out like this.

  • Chicagoan

    Yeah, I understand these kinds of developments attract wealthy clients, but this should have 58 units, 58 parking spots, and 116 bicycle parking spots.

    Above all, it’s a shame how short it is.

  • Deni

    Yeah, the neighbors there fought against a taller building.
