New construction across from Wrigley Field…and it’s pretty nice!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on October 17, 2009

A big thanks to Skyscraperpage user ‘george’ for the great photo work and updating everyone on this new construction building right across from Wrigley Field in Chicago’s Wrigleyville neighborhood.  When I first found out they were tearing down the old building, I was dreading what would be built in its place.  But I can rest assured and say that I’m really impressed with the new building.

    Pretty nice = “I want to live there?”
    What are your criteria? This is an utterly unremarkable building.

      Pretty nice meaning this building could have been a dinky, one story bar and restaurant with no architectural details going on. I’ve gotta say, they included a lot of detail in the brick and stone work and I agree that it’s nothing amazing but i’d say it’s an improvement. Just my opinion though.
