Week Links – June 30, 2013

Free as in beer:

  • The City of Chicago’s new tourism department now has an official app (linky).  It’s also the app used by the city’s Information Guides who help tourists find their way around The Loop, Streeterville, Near North, and the Gold Coast.  You can get your business featured for anywhere from $99-$699/year (linky).
  • Want to know about Chicago’s Bus Rapid Transit scheme?  Here’s the web site.

Behind a paywall:

  • Crain’s Chicago Business reports that the Wall Street Journal believe that friends-of-the-blog Related Midwest are going to end up with the Chicago Spire property once it’s out of foreclosure.  Linky (Holy double paywall, Batman!)
  • Sadness: Demolition is underway on Saint James Roman Catholic Church in Bronzeville.
