Menards gets AC units
Today we were treated to see a LARGE helicopter lifting big AC units onto the roof of the new Menards.

Good Bye Citgo, Blockbuster and Value city
Well after a long fight in court, Hanover Park and Manards have finally gotten a judgment and Value City furniture will be moving.

This will make way for the new Manards being built in the former Tradwinds center location. The Citgo station closed after the lands new owner, Menards, did not renew their lease. This area was a problem in the past and Hopefully not be one in the future. We are still waiting on word on what Menards will do with that section of land. Once we hear, we will post it here

Good Bye Blockbuster?
On Dec 13th the village will be holding a zoning meeting about changes to the Menards plans as well as a POSSIBLE new Bank of America where the Blockbuster Video stands now.
Below are the photos I got when I attended the zoning meeting regarding the new Bank Of America.

   

And here is what the new layout will look like with the CURRENT Menard's and Bank of America plans. Keep in mind, changed COULD happen from now till time its built...

 

SO LONG value City
We have recently gotten word that Value City Furniture will be out by April 1st of 08. At least that's what the court order says. Hopefully that will be the case and the construction of the New Menard's can get on the way and the ugly rock pile that's there now will be gone!

There are a few issues...

1. I will be attending the next zoning meeting concerning Menard's as I DO NOT like, nor think its a good idea that the plans for their loading docks are right on the corner by Bristol and Kingsbury. After all, these are two residential streets.

2. The Citgo gas station MIGHT, and again plans can change, be going bye bye

3. Rumor has it that the Kryspy Kream is not doing well at all, and Arbey's might be interested in that location.

Good Bye Old library, WaMu and Subway
Demolition has started on the smaller building in Tradewinds where the Old Library and subway was. Should be completely down by end of the month at the rate they are working.

Next will be the storefronts that are to the right of Value City Furniture.

2005 - 2007

Good Bye Tradewinds
Well unless you never look in that direction, Its impossible for you to not know that Tradewinds is being torn down. But WHY you may ask. Well the reason is Menard's has bought the property and will be building their new store there!
Everything from Dominic's to Value City in the mail "L" shape section will be gone as well as the smaller building where Subway, Washington Mutual and The Hanover Park Library was.
Blockbuster, Krispy Kream, McDonald's and Citgo will remain.


Menard's plans


Not to worry! The library didn't move far. It got it's own new building an the corner of Irving Park and Cumberland where to old Italian restaurant used to be.
And speaking of NEW buildings in the area, You probably already know that Auto Zone built their new store where the old KFC used to be, and the old run down car wash was torn down and a NEW Auto Spa built.  Not to mention the old Arby's has been torn town to make way for a brand new Popeye's Chicken!
Needless to say this is an exciting time because all the rebuilding in the area could mean a good increase in property values!
You may have also noticed that the Wendy's on Barrington Rd just south of Irving Park, and the Brown's Chicken on Irving Park just west of Barrington have also closed. Wouldn't be surprised if these area's are rebuilt like the others have.
One last note. No the Target store on Barrington and Schaumburg roads is NOT being torn down. They are EXPANDING! It will be a SUPER Target Bigger and Better and adding a grocery section. You will see them expanding the building on both sides and the front.
This is a great time to be in our area!
