Mixed Use
Commented on North and LaSalle 2 months ago
The presence of two gas stations on a single block requiring ultra wide curb cuts, combined with the fact that both Clark and LaSalle have four lanes for motor vehicle traffic (plus parking and turn lanes) means that this vicinity is a noisy speedway of cars that is highly unpleasant to walk along, bike on, or cross as a pedestrian. Whatever is done with these properties, I hope you can work with the city and stakeholders like the History Museum and Moody to calm the street and make it safer.

It is a cool looking design, very unique. However, it doesn't need to remain in use as a gas station.

Just FYI that there is a Shell station half a block away to the south, at North and LaSalle. I agree that keeping one or the other as a gas station makes sense.

Parking actually *increases* congestion because it encourages car use.

Housing (market rate or subsidized or a mix of both). Restaurants and retail on the ground floor might be good in a neighborhood that is already a dining destination.
