Briefly: Wacker, Wolford, Wrenters

North Bridge

  • The new Wolford store in the Shops at North Bridge (520 North Michigan Avenue) opened on Friday (January 6th, 2012).
  • Last Thursday we saw CDOT workers putting up new signs in preparation for Stage Three of the Wacker Drive reconstruction.  The changes go into effect today (Monday, January 9, 2012) and it means traffic and transit pattern changes in the Loop and West Loop.  If you go through this area, you’ll want to get the lowdown from the Chicago Department of Transportation here and the Chicago Transit Authority here.
  • The Chicago Tribune reports that the city wants to fill empty foreclosed condo buildings with renters. 150 dead buildings are being converted right now.
