Shake Shack may be based in New York, but it clearly has a soft spot for the Chicago Cubs.
The burger and custard chain will open another Chicago-area restaurant in a new Wrigleyville development that’s being built just south of Wrigley Field. The Addison & Clark development is set to be completed in mid-2018 and Shake Shack is expected to move in in 2019. Shake Shack is the first restaurant to commit to the development, which will have an upscale 10-screen movie theater operated by Mexico-based Cinemex.
The mixed-use development, a partnership between M&R Development and Bucksbaum Retail Properties, will have 148 apartment units and about 146,000 square feet for commercial tenants. Shake Shack’s new address will be 3535 N. Clark St., the address shared by the now-shuttered Goose Island bar and restaurant.
