Speaking of University of Chicago and their past plans of urban renewal, the school across the street managed to pull off it’s own mini renewal plan when they expanded their campus some time ago.
Now I’m not sure if the acquisition of the buildings and the land raised a stink when it was being done, but I have yet to hear of any drama.
The campus is undeniably beautiful and a gem of east Woodlawn.
It does give me pause though.
If the school across the street hadn’t had the foresight to expand their campus would my little section of paradise be this nice and quiet?
