The Uptown Theater

The Uptown Theater, originally uploaded by Michael_Lehet.

Check out the article in Today’s Sun Times about a new deal to give control of the Uptown Theater (4816 N. Broadway) to someone else besides Jam Productions. The problem is that Jam Productions paid $3.2 million for it in a foreclosure auction last summer.

David Roeder notes of a longstanding feud between Alderman Mary An Smith and Jam Productions.

Heard thru the grapevine: development plans in the works for Maryville Academy site in Uptown/Buena Park

IMG_2696

At the corner of Clarendon and Montrose in Buena Park is the old Maryville Academy – a 3.5 acre site sitting on both sides of Clarendon on the north side of Montrose.  Maryville has been vacant for years, and developers have been leery about developing property in the challenging neighborhood.

But the lure of townhomes, houses, or a high rise with views of the lake in one of Chicago’s few undeveloped parcels seems to be quite the temptation.

Photo Goodness in Chicago for Thursday, May 22

On quiet, tree lined, Arthur Street in West Ridge springs forth "Arthland" – I have no idea why.  The baby cow is riding a mini-motor cycle.

The Buddhist Temple on Ashland at Wilson is preparing for Buddha’s Birthday Celebration.  This should be quite a weekend.  Happy Birthday, Buddha.

Where in Chicago is Margate Park?

Map image

Conveniently located on the shores of Lake Michigan, comfortably within one day’s carriage ride from the movie studios located in the South Loop you’ll find this tranquil paradise far removed from the hectic city. 

That’s how this popular destination was billed to the movie stars and studio moguls of Chicago during the early 1900′s.

Today this popular neighborhood lies along the lakefront and Marine Drive stretching from Lawrence to Foster Avenues.  Out of character for traditional Chicago neighborhoods, some streets such as West Castlewood Terrace feature oversized lots with luxurious mansions built during the heyday of Chicago’s Silent Film era.

Blog 4-16-08 027

Charlie Chaplin, Gloria Swanson and other early film stars are rumored to have owned homes or visited the gracious mansions in the neighborhood and relaxed along the dunes in what is now a part of Lincoln Park.

Blog 4-16-08 029

Not every street in Margate Park is as luxurious as this, but even the more traditional streets such as Ainslie and Margate Terrace are tranquil oasis’ in an otherwise bustling neighborhood.  Most streets don’t go all the way from Marine to Sheridan or Broadway, rather dead end.  The apartment buildings lining these streets featured units with gracious flowing floor plans of exceptional size.

Still a hidden gem in Chicago, selecting a condo in Margate Park can be quite  a treasure.  Still priced affordably, it’s possible to locate  a sprawling 1,700 square foot two or three bedroom condo priced in the low $300,000 range featuring vintage details such as exposed woodwork, exposed wood trim, wood floors and lots of charming rooms.

The Uptown Broadway Building at Leland & Broadway in Chicago

Blog 4-16-08 021

From the Uptown Update

A reader wrote in on Friday: "This building was unveiled today and its restoration is gorgeous!"

We went by this morning to take a look, and we agree. The details on this building are stunning. Even with the downstairs still being gutted, it took our breath away.

Thank you, Thaddeus Wong, for giving this amazing building back to Uptown.
