    New Loft Rentals with Retail/Restaurant Space Continues Broadway Redevelopment

    Friday, March 28, 2014
    By Claudia Moreno

    Construction is underway.  “We are very excited to have the opportunity to develop what we consider the most exciting new development in Edgewater in quite some time!” said Bill Gold owner and developer of the mixed-use building located at 5427-37 N. Broadway.

    One year ago in a community meeting hosted by Alderman Osterman, approval was granted for Bill Gold to renovate the property that included the closed Pepitone’s restaurant after a fire in 2008. The building was an eyesore until Gold came along and the Zoning Board of Appeals approved a zoning variance and the go ahead for a living unit along with commercial space on the ground floor.

    Urban meets nature, contemporary and vintage design elements converge at Broadway Green Residencies, the building’s new name.  The remodeling includes “preserving a portion of the façade to maintain the character of the existing 3 story building. That said, a great deal of the front will be rebuilt at each floor level with new windows & balconies to create a modern yet classical end result,” added Gold.

    The 42 rental loft units have a versatile floor plan and condominium quality finishes.  The 2 & 3 bedroom units will include two bathrooms per unit as well as a balcony and /or decks in each unit.  A five-story elevator will be installed with direct access to the large common roof deck with great views, an exercise room with high quality equipment, bathroom, & large windows that look out onto the landscaped rear yard.

    Additional amenities include 19 indoor heated and 23 gated exterior parking spaces, keyless entry system for all common area doors, state of the art surveillance and intercom system with phone & computer monitoring, sprinkler system throughout, a gated and fenced dog run, bike storage in the garage as well as storage lockers for all tenants. There will also be a garbage chute with access from each residential floor.

    The building includes three commercial spaces on the ground floor. Gold hired Tim Rasmussen with Sperry Van Ness to be his commercial agent.  They are looking for a restaurant tenant for the north space at 5439 and medical/professional tenants for the 5427 building. The property has 3,400 square feet of ground floor restaurant space plus two retail storefronts. Retail storefronts can be combined into one 4,280 square foot space or two separate spaces of 2,540 square feet and 1,740 square feet. There is also a 1,000 square foot outdoor space.

    The elements of granite, quartz, bamboo flooring, and porcelain that grace the rental units, main area and corridors paint an attractive picture of the new neighborhood development.  The Broadway Green Residencies continue the recent  dynamic changes happening in the Edgewater along the Broadway corridor.

    Story from Edgeville Buzz

    "Wednesday, March 19, 2014By Daniel Zagotta

    It has been 10 years since Piser Weinstein Funeral Home got out of Dodge and left for Skokie. They left a valuable tract of land vacant at 5206 N. Broadway that includes the funeral home and huge parking lot.  Most recently, big red  X’s were slapped on the front of the building to warn first responders that the building is vacant and could collapse.

    The long-abandoned eyesore is now set for demolition by Chody Real Estate Corp, the company that owns the strip mall across the street. According to Chody Principal Bart Friedman, the demolition could start as soon as next month, but no date has been set. Once demolition is complete they will be able to start developing the planned 20,000-square-foot multi-tenant retail complex. The whole project is designed to be low impact on the surrounding community, and works well with current traffic patterns.

    Alderman Harry Osterman of the 48th ward has been working closely with the developer. The alderman said in a statement to EVB, ”I have shared with the developer the neighbors’ interest to keep the development one-story with no alley access. I will be meeting with neighbors again as soon as the development moves forward to ensure this project is good for Broadway and good for the community.”

    Chody has not released the names of any tenants as of yet, but rumors have been swirling about a possible Chipotle restaurant in the space. Through the years the company has tried to break into the Edgewater market and this could be a golden opportunity for them. The space is high profile with great traffic. Community residents have long been in support of having the Mexican food gurus in the area."

    This new development will vastly improve the vibrancy of the surrounding blocks.

    M.I.S. Mexican Institute of Sound

    The Mexican Institute of Sound is the project name of DJ and producer Camilo Lara.

    A native of Mexico City, Lara began working for the Mexican arm of EMI Records while still in his teens, attracted to the industry in large part by the record-collecting habit he’d fallen into at the age of eight. In 2001, Lara left EMI to co-found the indie label Suave Records, which among other projects released the best-selling soundtrack to Alfonso Cuaronâ breakthrough film, Y Tu Mama Tambien. Also around this time, Lara began working on the side as a DJ and remixer for acts like Placebo and Le Hammond Inferno. Returning to EMI Mexico after creative disputes with his partner at Suave Records, Lara rose to the position of Vice President of A&R and Marketing. While working with established bands like Plastilina Mosh and signing new artists from the emergent Mexican indie rock scene, Lara also began working on his own project, the Mexican Institute of Sound. Signing as an artist with the indie label Nacional Records, Lara released the Mexican Institute of Sounds debut album, Magic Mexico, in 2006. An infectious mix of vintage Mexican pop and dance records from the 20s through the 60s (including samples from classic Esquivel sides) with modern loops and beats, Magic Mexico is described by Lara as a deliberately sunny and upbeat response to the pervasive gloom of the contemporary film and music scene in Mexico. In 2012, Lara issued Politico under the MIS banner; rather than his usual sample-heavy melange, it was his first recording of all-original songs played by a live band. He was inspired to write the album after authorities discovered a large cache of the explosive C4 next door to his home that was ready to be detonated. ~ Stewart Mason

    Girl In A Coma

    San Antonioâ Girl In A Coma have left a permanent tattoo on the hearts of music lovers with their piercing songs & nuclear performances. They've blazed a singular trail since Nina Diaz joined the band at age 13 and have found champions and comrades along the way including Joan Jett who signed them, Morrissey, Sia, Tegan and Sara, The Pogues and Amanda Palmer who have hand selected them for tours. In addition, Robert Rodriguez asked them to compose one of the key songs for his film Machete last year. All the while, they have been building one of the most impassioned and diverse fan bases in music. Girl in a Coma are that rare feral band, unaffected by trends, that has managed to stay wild & thrill us at every turn. Their latest album, Exits & All the Rest, was released in late 2011 on Blackheart Records, and is the most heart-stopping turn yet. Last year the album was named to NPR's list of Top 50 Albums of they year & won the Independent Music Award for Best Indie/Alt. Rock Album in

    Vivian Garcia


    I have been singing since..well..since I can remember. I picked up the guitar late in the game and began learning rhythms from Latin America and moved on to study some traditional flamenco at the Old Town School of Folk music and eventually took lessons in Granada Spain at Escuela Carmen de las Cuevas. I am a singer who plays guitar, not the other way around and so I leave the complicated guitar work to the awesome people I get to perform with from time to time.

    I have been a gigging musician since 1999 playing shows in Sarasota, Florida, Chicago Illinois, and this past year and a half in Madrid, Spain where I am currently pursuing an M.A. in Spanish literature. 

    It is in Madrid that I have begun writing my own music and as life would have it, I joke that I moved to Spain to compose in English. I have been working with a few artists there and plan on recording my FIRST album this Fall.

    I still play shows of primarily Spanish covers but am also incoI still play shows of primarily Spanish covers but am also incorporating my English originals into my setsâ with some positive feedback too ( whew) This is a transitory AND prolific phase of life for me as far as music is concerned and this year I am quite willing to give it all I have to collaborate with as many artists as possible and also create my own pieces. I hope some of you will stick around for this journey!


    Peligrosa



    Established December 2007, PELIGROSA is a collective of DJs, producers and visual artists reenergizing the sights and sounds of Latin Americas past, present and future. We promulgate the antiquity of our deeply rooted sounds, cherishing it's beauty, sheading light on it's uniqueness while making it relevant to today's audience. We play a wide variety of styles and enjoy music from the continents of
    South America, Africa and parts of Europe. We are dangerous music!


    Fue


    FUE (pronounced few) is an alternative rock band from the
    Chicago land area. Their music blends the power of modern alt with the intense, emotional vocals of lead singer/keyboardist Joanna Rutzky. The band is rounded out with Isaac Flex on bass and brothers Tim and Aaron May on guitar and drums.

    The name FUE is an alternate spelling of its homonym  and comes from Matthew 9:37 where Jesus is telling of the great multitudes who are waiting to hear the Good News. We want to be among those counted worthy to help bring in the harvest that is ripe and waiting. With their passionate and contagious sound, coupled with a heart for God and his children, FUE wants to take their music to as many people as possible.

    Starting off as just a group of friends playing worship music together for their local church in June of 2008 and then soon after evolved into their own unique style of music by writing orignal songs.  Their songs bulge with rock sounds and capture a variety of different dynamics through the vocals of Joanna Rutzky.

    The other band members included brothers Tim (Guitar), Ryan (Bass),Aaron May (Drums), and Abi Rutzky


    Sidewalk Chalk

    There are many lessons that come from age and experience. When one discovers such a thing, there’s an inherent need to broadcast it to the world. This is that. With an eclectic variety of ages and experiences, Chicago based musicians Sidewalk Chalk are a force to be reckoned with.-

    The emcee, singer, keyboard, bass, drummer, trumpet, trombone, and tap dancer are the evolution of Hip-Hop, Soul and Jazz superbly packaged into sounds that you've quite possibly never heard before. The legend Sam Cooke once sang, Change is Gonna Come. Musically, change is already here. Upon the heels of the release of their debut full-length album, Corner Store (released 3/6/12 and co-produced with Greg Magers of Lupe Fiascoâ's The Cool), Sidewalk Chalk has already proven themselves worthy of a listen. They're sure to satisfy the cravings of anyone in love with music and hungry for something different.-

    Musicality, honesty, and intellect are becoming harder to find. Thankfully, Sidewalk Chalkâ's goal is to be heard by the world and inspire its inhabitants. Quickly on their way to becoming one of the most talented live bands of this generation, Sidewalk Chalk was named Best Hip-Hop Act in Chicago of 2010 by the Chicago Reader. The groupâ's Emcee, Rico Sisney, represented Chicago at the 2012 World Expo in Shanghai, China. They've been featured on CBS News Online, 2dopeboyz, and Guest of a Guest Los Angeles. On top of that, Sidewalk Chalk has shared the stage with artists such as J*Davey, Company of Thieves, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and ?uestlove of The Roots. Individually, members of the group have acted as musical director(s) for Brother Ali, toured with Jazzanova and played behind Buddy Guy and Talib Kweli.-

    So, wake up world and meet the rest of us at the “Corner Store. We'll be out front with Sidewalk Chalk.


    Phero


    Phero, born Eric Lopez, is a 23 year old International Recording artist born and bred on the South side of Chicago. Unafraid of experimenting with his sound he is constantly looking for new opportunities to collaborate fresh ideas and a powerful message for today's generation.

    His current single project, The Five Columns (I, II, III, IV, V),leads an introduction to his anticipating album release in 2013. Delivering a throwback, simplified sound with a taste of complexity and metaphor.

    While his career up until this point has been an accelerated yet humble ride, from touring in Europe, headlining music festivals, teaching workshops, and creating a loyal fan base independently, Phero never forgets to give back to his neighborhood Pilsen and inspire others to follow their dream.


    DJ Panamani

    World music has gone global. As technology shrinks the planet, African, Caribbean and Latin American music rubs shoulders with electronic rhythms in clubs from Argentina to Italy, forging the sound of the new millennium; a universal groove that blends the ancient with the futuristic and leaves nobody behind. It figures that Los Angeles, maybe the most diverse city on earth, is home to one of its most progressive world music scenes. It also makes sense that it's also home to one of the sceneâ's fastest-rising stars: DJ Panamami, a true-blue L.A. native, world traveler and sound selector with passion to burn. 

    Hip-hop, calypso, salsa underscored Panamamiâ's upbringing as a West Indian Panamanian growing up in Echo Park, Los Angeles. She absorbed the High Life, Hip Life and Arab-influenced music popular in Ghana and Niger during her year-long stay in Africa, just as she did the local sounds of Baltimore, Washington D.C. and the Bay Area, three other cities she has called home. Panamamiâ's sets are eclectic and informed; from Brazilian beats to dancehall, cumbia , hip hop and more, anything goes when she hits the turntables. Panamami has successfully rocked diverse crowds all over the US by seamlessly moving between genres, handpicking both classic and contemporary songs to keep partygoers on their toes.

    Panamami is co-founder of Bodega, a seasonal world music party and one of the fastest-growing dance event in
    Los Angeles, where she has rocked alongside a slew of famed guest Djs, such as Quantic and Rich Medina. She has graced venues like Kress Nightclub and Zanzibar in Southern California, the Elbo Room in San Francisco, Bardot in Miami and DROM and Bembe in New York City. One of her mixtapes was recently featured on Jay Zâ's popular blog, Life and Times and Parlour Magazine. She has also been heard over the airwaves on Dj Chillyâ's radio show El Sonido on Seattleâ's 90.3 FM as well as over internet radio as a disk jockey and personality on Bodega Community Radio in 2011. She is also one of the few American DJs who have had the pleasure of spinning for crowds in the Hongdae district of South Korea. With Panamami’s broad taste in music and sharp turntable skills, it is of no surprise that she continues her reign as one of the most sought-after dj's in both LA and beyond.

    More so than the other cookie-cutter street fests this summer, the Taste of River North (Known as ToRN) reflects the identity of its booming neighborhood and is one of the fastest growing in the country. ToRN continues to get bigger each season, with a record 40,000-plus attending in 2012, by giving a taste of the culture that makes River North so distinct. Currentlyin its 12th year, ToRN takes place July 19 – 21 in the picturesque riverfront setting of Ward Park. Along with a multitude of great restaurants and world-class galleries from the hood, featuring non-stop live music, headlined by Chicago’s own Lucky Boys Confusion and breakout Canadian rockers The Sheepdogs.
