Where Have We Seen This Before?

Uh-oh. Looks like some Uptown residents have been playing around in the ground-level section of the as-yet-to-be completed Uptown Broadway Building at Broadway and Leland. Sections of the chain-link fencing have been pushed over and it appears folks have been hanging out in the future retail section of the building. Work looks to have slowed to a standstill on this building, but residents have reportedly contacted Riis-Borg construction, who is handling the rehab, to let them know that this needs to be secured. Let's hope work resumes soon.


  1. I highly recommend that whoever is reporting this places a call to 311 to report an "unsecured building".

    I am not familiar with the exact address or would place a call myself.

  2. Does anyone have an update on this building? Never really heard the results from the community meeting awhile back. I have emailed Mary Ann Smith's office two times for an update (I think this building is in the 48th), but have not received a response.

  3. Copy and paste this link.

    Riis-Borg is doing the construction. You can fill out this form for more info on the building or call 312-733-7553

  4. Thanks! I requested information online. We'll see if I get a response.
