Cubs get OK for arch over Clark Street

The Chicago Cubs are another step closer to beginning work on renovating Wrigley Field after the Chicago Plan Commission today approved a variety of tweaks to the team’s previously approved stadium renovation plan, including a new arch for advertising over Clark Street.

In return, the team would remove from its plan a pedestrian bridge over Clark Street and a patio deck over Patterson Street connected to a planned hotel, as well as shift the entrance of the hotel from Patterson to Clark Street.

New to the plan now is a “brand arch” stretching over Clark Street between Patterson and Addison Streets — an idea that was floated in community meetings earlier this year.
