Say adios to Taco Bell near Wrigley Field

The days of Cubs fans eating at the Taco Bell across from Wrigley Field are numbered.

In one of two newly proposed additions to the rapidly changing landscape around the ballpark, a developer that recently bought the site of the Wrigleyville fast-food staple unveiled plans for a three-story retail and restaurant complex on the property.

The proposal just steps from the stadium’s famous marquee has nearly 40,000 square feet of retail space, including a 7,300-square-foot rooftop area and a patio along Addison Street just west of the Cubby Bear bar, according to a marketing flyer for the property.

A timeline for the project could not be determined, but the Taco Bell franchise has a lease through July 2018, according to a source familiar with the property.
