A reader sends in the following pic and info:
"Several weeks ago I noticed that this building looked to be vacant and serious rehab seemed to be going on. Yesterday I saw this sign and took a photo of it. This is the apartment building in the 800 block of Cuyler that a murder took place in last year. Several shootings took place in front of this building and due to the gang and drug issues taking place around this property the City of Chicago took the neighborhood's complaints and got the owner into housing court several times. (Yet another reason to go to CAPS meetings!) The police were terrific about getting both our concerns and the arrest data made in and around this building to the people who address problem buildings.
There was talk that the property owner would be forced to sell the property. I can not confirm that this took place, however it was a real dump of a building and there were many problems with the people he allowed to live and loiter there. Over the past few months it has been so much quieter on that block. I think a major rehab of the building is a very positive thing.
We will need to keep an eye on who moves into the building and make sure we do not allow any problem behavior to return to the area."
