CTA land for sale, but not in Logan Square

Last week at the ICSC Illinois Alliance Program and Midwest Idea Exchange, I briefly met a man charged with selling CTA real estate, but none of it was located in Logan Square.  Mostly it was along the Brown Line, and I recall a Wilson Yards property.

Oddly, the man charged with promoting the CTA real estate for sale at this conference was from Boston (I don’t recall his name or firm) and not quite familiar with our neighborhoods and the many train stops throughout the CTA system. Today’s Chicago Tribune reports in “CTA puts out ‘for sale’ sign” that the CTA has outsourced management of this real estate portfolio to Chicago’s Jones Lang LaSalle, so the Boston front is even more odd.

A map of some of the land and buildings for sale shows these first efforts don’t include any CTA owned property in Logan Square.


Sensory perception:

Because I’ve had a rabbit wintering in my yard, this sign on the door of Prada & Associates at 2653 N. Milwaukee Avenue made me smile.
