Re: Oaklawn: 2929 Oak Lawn

I live two blocks from Crow's Parkland campus. It's not all high-rise, but there's an insane amount of development gong on over here - has been since we moved in. Tons of new townhouses, apartment buildings. Total wine and Starbucks are finished. 2929 Oak Lawn, the Warwick Expansion, and the Toll Br...

Re: Oaklawn: 2929 Oak Lawn

In case this hasn't been updated already, Office Depot has been demolished and digging for the underground parking has been going on for a few days now. Can't wait to see this one!

Re: Oak Lawn

Completely agree with everyone about Pints and Quarts. Bad service, bad prices, not a great product. Mille Lire and Union do very well over there so I don't think it's the location or lack of traffic. I walk with my wife and son down to Union all the time.

Re: Oak Lawn

The Starbucks on Oak Lawn and Congress opened up a week or so ago, and it actually does have a small indoor area. It's still a step back in pedestrian friendliness, but I guess it could have been worse? I live at Congress and Throckmorton (just a block over from this), and I have to say, even thoug...

Re: Oak Lawn

Yeah they've already re-filled the holes and seem to have unearthed some piping. I'm sure it was just utilities. Bummer!

Re: Oak Lawn

Has anyone seen any information on the Total Wine development at Congress and Oak Lawn? They've begun digging at the site, and they are digging far enough down that it almost looks like an underground parking garage is being built. But last I heard there were no plans for that.

Re: Oaklawn: 2929 Oak Lawn

Hopefully, this will make it more likely for a push for some real walkability improvements to Oak Lawn. Right now its highway speedway access road. I've been hit by a car crossing in a crosswalk at Congress and Oak Lawn before. Yes!! My wife and son and I walk across that intersection almost daily ...

Re: Oaklawn: 2929 Oak Lawn

Was a Trader Joes planned for this shopping center once, like a hundred years ago or something? Aw man really?? My wife and I live in the neighborhood behind this shopping center...and that would have been ideal. Much better than a Total Wine (as if there isn't enough liquor/wine shops on Oak Lawn ...

Re: Oak Lawn: Toll Brothers (Congress & Welborn)

I live in the neighborhood. It's been fenced off for a while now...no signs of construction yet.

Re: Oak Lawn

The old strip next to the post office was cleared. I wonder when the office supply store next to the Melrose will close for the new apt development going there. I have been wondering the same thing. I live in the neighborhood just west of that stretch of Oak Lawn...I would love to see it liven up. ...
