long-empty Majestic Store any favors: It's looking less majestic than ever (and we didn't think that was possible).
We can't help remembering then-CTA President Ron Huberman declaring at a community meeting about the Wilson Yard TIF, in March 2008, that the CTA-owned properties, like this building, are a "blight" on Uptown and that one of the CTA's first priorities is to fix them up and get some quality retail in there. Ahem.
That was the same meeting where the timeline for the Truman Parking Structure was unveiled: Parking garage opens in Winter '09; and the Student Services Center completed by Spring '10. Ahem.
As we've come to expect from anything related to the Wilson Yard TIF... promises, and more promises, and all of them as empty as the "Tic Store."
