It’s bulldozing time.
It took nine years, two names and a foreclosure lawsuit for a mixed-use development across from Wrigley Field to take hold.
But developers plan to finally kick-off demolition around June 15, giving notice to neighbors who are part of the Triangle Neighbors group on Wednesday.
Demolition is expected to last through August, although “in our experience, they usually start later than anticipated and finish a bit earlier,” wrote John Becvar, president of Triangle Neighbors.
Formerly known as Addison Park on Clark, the $140 million development will feature 148 apartments, 146,000 square feet of commercial space and a 405-space parking garage directly across from Wrigley Field and extending south down Clark Street.
The expansive project forced the closure of multiple beloved Wrigleyville spots, including Salt & Pepper Diner, Red Ivy, Mullen’s, iO Theater and Goose Island Wrigleyville.
