Cubs fans are used to dealing with hypotheticals, and the latest development plans for the corner of Clark and Addison presents the latest example. A hulking project aims to reshape Wrigleyville, including its nightlife and dining options, and could displace four more spots in addition to those already gone, including the shuttered Goose Island Wrigleyville. New renderings of the $140 million development have been making their way across Internet, showcasing an eight-story project mixed with residential and retail space. DNAinfo has the latest.
Construction could take two years, but folks in that neighborhood are used to waiting; as aldermen approved the first iteration of the plan in 2010. However, here's list of the dining and drinking options, including some neighborhood staples that would need to go so that the Addison Park on Clark can live:
- Starbucks, 1023-25 W. Addison St.: The reliable coffee shop for suburban fans is set for demolition.
- Red Ivy, 3525 N. Clark St.: This loungey sports bar that serves pizza would close soon.
- Mullen's On Clark, 3527 N. Clark St.: Like Red Ivy, this sports bar is also slated to closed, and is named after former police officer Jim Mullen.
- Salt & Pepper Diner, 3537 N. Clark St.: The Lincoln Park location closed years ago, and its Wrigleyville sibling could soon follow.
- Bar Louie, 3545 N. Clark St.: The Wrigleyville location of Bar Louie is already closed.
- Goose Island Wrigleyville, 3535 N. Clark St.: The Goose was supposed to close last year, but after the development project stalled, Greg Hall and Co. gave fans one more season before pulling the plug earlier this month.
