Winnemac Park Neighbors: Ravenswood Station – Almost ready!

Rare springlike temperatures gave me a chance to check out the progress of the new commercial development at Ravenswood Station.

The Sears Auto Center is open. Although I have yet to see any new Yelp reviews.

 I bet right now it is the cleanest auto service center in all of Chicago.

There is a surface parking lot in the rear of the lot. The Ravenswood Terrace 

apartment complex under construction can be seen at the far end of the surface lot.

 The  main entrance to the fitness center is oriented to the surface lot.

Notice the permeable pavers used at the parking spots. Nice touch.


There is pedestrian access  at the far north edge of the lot. 

Pedestrians can walk down the alley and head out to Ainsle St.
