Crain’s Chicago Real Estate Daily reports today that Wal-Mart will open its second location in East Lakeview at 2840 N. Broadway. The building known as Broadway at Surf currently hosts Bed, Bath & Beyond, T. J. Maxx and Cost Plus World Market. It also formerly hosted PetSmart, and the company is currently advertising the space for a sublet.
From the article:
A Wal-Mart spokesman said Thursday that the company hasn’t finalized any deals in Chicago but confirmed that company real estate executives are familiar with a 30,000-square-foot availability at that property.
While this development doesn’t fall within the boundaries of our usual coverage area, it will certainly have some effect, be it good or bad, on the neighborhood.
